OHHHH I had that same problem with the wheels and touching the steering block. I found out that the only wheel that fit the serpent is the Touring wheels, not the wheels with extensions on the spoke which grinds on the steering block. Well what i did to fit 26mm regular wheels was get a dremel tool or a hobby knife and cut the spokes to make a curve, so it doesn't come in contact with the steering block. After that it fit perfectly and rotate without touching the block.

Are you sure you want to use 28mm front tires?? Most of the touring car already have more then enough front traction and we are all trying to get more rear traction! and if you use 28mm front tires then you will have more front traction and you might need to use whole new set up for your car!
