Hi Ian, 

Just saw your price list online for the WM08 Wheel Set Douglas "SE" 130/212 Solid Magnesium Wheels.

You have two rear wheel sizes listed 210 and 212. Can you tell me what performance difference can be expected when using the 212 instead of a 210? My kart is an Arrow BMAX and it would appear as though the current rear wheel size is 210. Also is 212 the maximum you can or should go to when using MG Reds?
