Default H1 Outer Required?


Can you expand on your response regarding why you think the outer ring is required? I spoke with Mac about an hour ago because I like this H1 wheel solution. I am assuming the need/requirement for the outer reinforcing ring to be application driven.

I am asking the question to make sure I have him build them correctly for me. I will never use my XJ on rocks. I built mine for a little trail use (not likely to ever be involved on something as aggressive as two-track), but the reality is once you venture prepared.

I assumed your comment regarding the requirement for the outer ring was to prevent dents from occurring when the tires are deflated on trails and rocks where this strategy is beneficial for traction. I do not expect to ever be involved in this type of use, but...

Real nice fabrications skills! You should get into welding 4130 aircraft frames.
