for $220 on GBC's and then $80. each on a DWT wheel. You'd be $540 for all new wheels and tires, or just add the 2 rears for now, and that would be $380 saving you a few bucks and new shinny wheels, like these babies! But spend the extra few cent and get the correct lug nuts! Not like I did and learned the hard way.

If you look at the oem wheels, they are sleeved where the wheel studs come through and they have a tapered lug nut. The DWT wheels are not sleeved and require a flange style lug nut. Some people say you can just flip the oem lug nuts. So I tried that, and was unable to remove my wheel from the hub. The lug nuts are cheap, I wish I knew that when I ordered my wheels. I had to remove my hub and then beat it off the wheel. Later I used a stepper drill bit and opened the hole up slightly, and then used a washer and a flange nut. I only took them off to install my old balder 11" tires/wheels to run on a dyno.

Ok guys I've run the gamut when it comes to the TRX700xx and choosing the right tire/wheel setup. I've run the 11" and the 10" setup in some pretty gnarly conditions (no deep mud). The 11" handles a bit tighter and slightly less roll in the turns but the wider 10" gives a little bit more flex in tire pricing. My recommendation would be a set GBC XC-Masters mounted on OMF's.. I've run this setup in Baja for a couple of years without a single wheel/tire issue. We also run our GBC's on Douglas reds too.



For wheels I'd call Bones at OMF he's a really cool dude who happens to know everything about TRX700xx wheel options. I get my GBC's direct from Greenball as a sponsored rider but have heard of people getting them cheaper online just can't remember where.
