Those were nice TakeOff premounts and I still run a few sets of them.

From what I understand they switched because of complaints the wheels would warp.

The dish rims hold their form better and the newer versions should be fine.

ahh i knew ive heard of acetone before. thats where. thnx. and so more confortable and less tire wear but slower means it just acts as a harder tire? so less grip maybe? anyone with success with mounting on wider rims?

Anyone with concrete experience? What tire/insert/ wheel seemed to work the best. This is fairly abrasive concrete and outside temps are 95 and hotter

Yeah those 11 spoke wheels were nice to look at, but they warped pretty easily in a hard hit. The new dish wheel does not pop the center out, like the old ones did. I just got back from our state race, and I did not see 1 wheel center pop out... Thats out of over 100 sets that were run over the weekend
