Hi peeps just gone and bought an b4.1 for my son to use and was planning on him usin my my old wheels/tyres etc ive got an b6.1 and now just found out out that the b4.1 uses pins and bearings for the wheels and on an hex like the b6.1 my fault for not doin the research!! Is there any way i can convert the b4.1 to wheel hex? Thank you

Hi,


For the rear all you need is the hexes.


For the front you'll need steering blocks / axles / hexes.


Full details are here:

Hi,


The Schumacher wheels should fit.
Might have minor issue with the rears. Nut might not tighten down, as the AE wheel is 'thicker' than the Schumacher wheel, simple solution is a washer between the wheel and nut. Sometimes had to do this with the Schumacher wheels on the B5.

Worthwhile conversion, I've done it with two B4's so all cars use the same wheels as my B6. JConcepts also do a conversion axle for the front. Think I got my parts from eurorc.com as they were cheapest.
We've had no fitment issues with any of my B6 wheels (ProLine, JConcepts, Schumacher)
