Wolrace Slot Mag wheels

PostPost by: vernon.taylor » Thu Mar 12, 2015 12:57 pm

Salut

I picked up a set of these - not too expensive but probably because they're missing the 'ring collars' that the spinner tightens up against. Does anyone have dimensions of these so I can get a set made up ? Or can anyone tell me (probably in the archives somewhere) what the inside angle of such a collar should be, please ?

Merci et @+

Just a thought....

Did the Wolfrace wheels have rings?

Could it be that they are like the JAP wheels which don't require them?

I had a set of the wolfrace wheels and had these....
the face of the wheel is flat and the nut has nothing to lock against
