I am currently running mofo deep dish low offset 1.0 wheels which are also wider than typical 1.0 wheels. I believe they are called Lone Stars but when I checked the site yesterday to buy some new ones I couldn’t find them, so they may have been discontinued. They have several other low offset wheel options but some of the more attractive offerings are weirdly modular and you have to buy individual components a la carte to put them together and I couldn’t make sense of what I’d need for a complete setup. Injora and RC4WD have some low offset wheel options, too, but they are narrower like all the other mainstream 1.0 wheels, which I’m not crazy about. I did order a set of the new heavy brass low offset Injora wheels from their website yesterday because I desperately need more wheel weight at this point. I don’t love the style but they are an awesome value at $29 for 4.I agree about the deadbolt nuts falling off - v frustrating - I solved that with loctite but regret doing so as they are now on too tight for comfort.
It would be good to see some pics? - I'd be interested in some low offset wheels so as not to get too close to the portals and to enable a wider choice of tyre but not sure which to get any thoughts appreciated - is the servo and motor good enough on the FCX to handle more weight and wider wheelbase?
Looks great! Do you have any tricks that helped you mount those tires on those wheels? I have the same ones in white, and a set of Comp Pins? I gave up on them after a few hours having only succeeded in mounting one tire (poorly).Today I added a set of Injora 65x19 comp pins multi terrain tyres on injora metal beadlocks with negative offset to keep the wheels away from the portals (tyres and wheels are great value). I am very impressed with the results. The extra height and grip of the tyres makes climbing a dream. I reluctantly admit that this setup is now probably a better climber than my modified deadbolt and more fun . View attachment 152862
With the injora wheels for me the trick was making sure you put the two longer (8mm) & temporary screws in first. Without doing this you have no chance of bringing the two sides together - once they are tightened just enough to close the gap a little then fit the permanent (5.5mm) screws before finally removing the two long screws and replacing them with the standard ones. The other thing I had to do was reverse the lock nuts so the nylon bit went on first - thats the only way my socket could tighten the nut because the wheel screw heads stick out too much.Do you have any tricks that helped you mount those tires on those wheels?
