I can't believe I waited this long to build it. What a sweet flying airplane!

I have read through most of this monster thread, and perhaps I missed it, but are there any better wheels that fit the wheel pants? Mine are already getting flat spots after only a half dozen flights (with lots of touch and gos) and need to order up some replacements. Not willing to go bigger and forsake the fairings though, they are just too pretty. I am thinks perhaps the 2" GWS foam. The stock wheels are 1.75 inch, but I think there is room for 2". Actually, my wheels were two different ones in the kit. Slightly different diameter, different compound and one hole was too small. Any help is appreciated!
When you go up size by a lot you could raise the fairings to get extra room and not spoil the look too much.
