Centramatics-Space Needed In Back of Wheel

I've been searching, but have not been able to find a thread I read some time ago re: necessary space on the backside of wheels to accomodate centrimatics. Does anyone know this information and would you please share it?

We just picked up our new axles and will be purchasing new wheels/tires. We also bought centrimatics so we are now on the search for this information.

Thanks.

Deb

A flat 10 inch space must be on the inside of the wheel, for the model that we sell.

But, measure the flat diameter of the Centramatics that you have. That tells you the flat space that must be on the backside of the wheels.

Thanks Andy. We did purchase ours from you, as well as the axles and a bolt set.

In case you didn't see another post I made last night, the folks at Axis were really nice to work with and loaded them as well as made certain they were secure for the drive home (about 5 hours each way for me). I picked them up yesterday.

Your welcome.

Make sure the new wheels each have at least a 2600 pound rating.
