What's the offset on your rear tires? My Yoke GT4 takes a 2 offset. So when I use 0 offset wheels the inner portion of the wheel's rim rubs against the arm.

Thanks for your reply 007,

What is the offset? is that the adjustment using the alan key?

Sorry . not sure about the terms.

the offset thing got nothing to do with 'alan key adjustment'....

its the tires itself....usually on the box is written 0 ofset / 2' offset...

another way to deal with it is putting on a thicker wheel hexagon than the stock ones....

You probably have the rubber tyre axles. The axles for foam should have stick out more and have a small 2mm washer on the outside. If it isnt there then use offset tyres. Check on the web sites that sell foams and you will see what I mean

Yup,

I am running a FW05T.

MY foams box doesn`t initiate the offset, but, went to their website, it states 0 offset.

Thanks for your help.
