Angry Rear Rims keep hitting suspension - help

Hello guys - having trouble trying to rear foam wheels to our cars - have tried two different brands on two different types of RC (GS Racing and Kyosho).
To fix the problem we need thicker (8mm) wheel hubs - do these exist or how else can we fix this.
Help - very annoying

You probably need to run foams with 2 degrees off-set. Rightnow, I think your running 0 degrees off-set. With the NTC3, I always make sure that the foam tires I run in the rear are 0 degrees off-set so that It's not to wide.
