original idea was because they were split you didnt have to have a deep wheel well inside inwhich to seat the tyre when fitting, this means the inside of the rim would be larger and such allow you to fit bigger brakes... but bit different for mini wheels, they dont seem to be used for this purpose

What sort of weight would you be looking at with some force racing 3pc splits?

Hello Yeti!

Nice wheels you got there. Had any problem with them yet? I'm thinking about converting my exacton to 7" wide splits but i heard it was dangerous to use inner tubes with radial tires. Did you checked sidewall temperature after a good ride? Thanks

@ station wagon, there shouldnt be any problem running tubes, as long as you check theres no sharp bits on the inside etc and dont pinch the tube when refitting the rim to the rest of the wheel (i did this on one wheel grrrr) lots of 4x4s run tubes and motor bikes etc so i cant see an issue equilly im not an expert and i will see when i come to run on it. but Carl did say running tubes was advised as there is no Guarentee that the wheel is air tight.

i dont use tubes in them, they hold the tyre pressures fine, i check them every week for the past 2 months and they havnt gone down., they handle really nice for the tyres that are on them.

thanks

Would take some epic effort to do that :lol: Considering split rims are fitted to many many racing cars all over the world I think they are fine enough. :)
