Thanks everyone. I should have been more clear. My rig is straight from DMC with alloy car wheels and the necessary adapter. I purchased it from another inmate. It has changed a bit, but is still on the Dauntless home page in the slideshow. If you want to see the current wheels click here to see the pic on the Dauntless site.

Drone - I think the info you provided is exactly what is was after. Thank you!

The alloy wheels are ok (even if they are a bit plain). Unfortunately the mag-chloride they use to melt snow here is already taking it's toll on them. I want to hunt down some inexpensive steel or powder coated wheels to use with a more aggressive, softer compound, tire in the winter.
