Someone posted this to me yesterday:

Now I know Carl's wheel conversions are becoming increasingly popular so what are your thoughts on this?

Anybody actually had any problems?


EDIT: a quick search came up with one other thread that mentions a previous discussion but I can't find it?

I've stripped loads of inner tubes out of tyres over the years and never seen one with rubbing issues.
A frined in the States has run tubes while autocrossing...

Metric is for people who can't do fractions.

99% of the autograss cars use tubes, with wheel speeds of over 100mph and race speed of 60mph there is plenty of wheel spin and lots of heat in the tyres.
