    This might be a stupid question, but how many different 3 lug/stud bolt circles are out there. Know their is American and metric. But is there more than one metric? Thanks

    CRG uses different front hub bolt circles. The most common is 58 m/m, CRG uses a 67 m/m.

    I was just wondering, because I bought two hubs off eBay and they seem to be about 1 mm bigger bolt circle then my Tony/Kart rims. I guess they must be fudged up and I reckon that’s why I got a good deal off eBay.

    Best way to save money in karting is to buy everything new and take good care of it.

    Cliff. I have had to file the holes in after market wheel slightly oval to the inside to fit my Tony//Kart. I am not sure if it was the wheel or if Tony//Kart uses a slightly smaller bolt circle. No big deal, just make sure they fit with no interference.

    Steen. Thanks for the input. I have other hubs of different Manufactures that all fit my Tony/Kart rims. These were like new and I thought there were a good deal. I didn’t think they would made another bolt circle that close. I could file out the holes in my rims, but I believe I will remove the studs and bolts and retire them. Oh well. And yes it probably is better to buy every thing NEW and take care off it. But I work on trucks for a living. Not planes. Thanks guys…….
