Here are pics of my GPMs from Asia Tees. They came blue and I used EASY OFF to strip them, the inner bead lock ring was red and I stripped it at the same time, then used a wire wheel on the dremel to clean them up.

Can't speak for others, but I got my TA05 units to work... (see above pics)

I was also told that TA04 and TLT should be a direct fit as well..

Thats what I thought. I would just hate to buy the wrong ones and try to return them to Japan. Just want to get it right the first time.

Just receieved my TA05's today. They look like they are good over all quality. Both are anodized blue the same shade of blue (some people are getting mixed colors) and I receieved them pretty quickly from Hong Kong.

I'll stick them on later today and report back.

Is the shipping the same from RCMart.com as it is from their Ebay store?

Looking to order a set for my TLT but they only have single pair in their Ebay store.

Mahalo's in advance!

Pretty similar.. eBay is probably slightly more expensive as they have to pay eBay the commission...

Just installed both sets I bought. Overall great quality, excellent fit, no binding or anything else bad to report. Very nice buy- 2 sets = $13.90 and about $4 shipping.


These are the Yeah Racing, model# TA05-0006F for anyone wondering.
