TA02W knuckles (the "red knuckles") - they'll need shoulder screws and a different axle though they bolt right on. Adds 5 or 10mm per side, I don't remember exactly but any 1.55 will fit after. I can get parts numbers if needed. Might even be able to just use the upgraded low profile shoulder screws, they are flat on top and you'll gain some clearance.

I think you'll get away with it since it looks like those wheels have a good amount of offset, I know my SSD's don't clear but they are a bit deeper offset. Always good to have a plan B

Pic from an old project, note the red knuckles:

Going to mount the body with Velcro. What do you guys use to fill in the body holes?

Wheels and tires came. OSRC you were right!. They fit perfectly. Loving the look. Makes me want to paint it primer gray with rust. Not sure how I want to paint it.

Took the shock spacers out and lowered it 5mm.
I donít know if you can see the difference but it looks a lot better sitting here on the workbench.
