YZ10 rims - to drill or not to drill?

Post by kaszal »

I've got some JC Racing YZ-10 wheels for my Procat. Is it worth drilling the extra pair of holes in the rims or is two enough? I also wondered why there were only 2 holes if the wheel fitment had four screws? Thanks for any comments.

2 = quicker to remove, 4 = more secure, up to you which way you want to go, I've drilled out a couple of sets of mine though :wink:

Unlike the Yokomo 2.2's these don't have marks in the moulding where the holes would be so you'll have to be accurate with position, use a wheel hub to mark hole centres

Oohhhhhhhh they are pretty, got a part number for them? I presume JC still make them.

Could do with a set for my Yokomo Hot Dog.

Never thought to look on fleabay :oops:


I got some of their CAT wheels last year, really nice quality.

I am rather taken with the following YZ10 wheels,

That rim looks like it has a defect in it. Out of all the rims, why choose that one for the picture of your product?

True. Maybe I'll give them a nice photo of mine to use :D

The ones I got were fine, no defects. A little flashing maybe, but easily sorted with a sharp scalpel.

I think the dish wheels collect less dirt than the five-spoke and look good too.
