Wolf wheels

Does anyone have any experience with Wolf wheels? I am thinking of using them on my 130 to help with the turning radius. Will these wheels help?

If you've got proper 130 rims 6.5" rim width and they look like standard rims but deeper then wolf rims will do nothing for your turning circle as they have exactly the same offset. They are much stronger though.

Off set

I just went out and measured my off set. 2" in the front and 1 1/2 in the rear. My set of Wolf wheels that are sitting in the garage are 2 1/2". I guess I need to get those Wolf wheels mounted.

What's the rim width? How much inset have you got on the wheels you've got at the moment?
To improove the turning circle you'll need to adjust the steering stops on the swivels, you'll be surprised at the difference it makes. My 110 seemed to turn on a sixpence after I'd adjusted things so the truy was just clear of the suspension at full lock. Narrower tyres help there too
