Does Veteran have a tire problem? Tire off the rim?

An update on the scraping situation of the wheel. I emailed Ewheels to place my order of the Sherman and they sent this:

"As for waterproofing and the rim design, the latest and and next batch feature a slightly wider rim for better tire stability, along with an upgraded waterproofed top panel. The motor hasn't been redesigned, but Veteran has updated the pedal hanger design so the tire does not scrape with this revised motor rim." 

I went ahead and placed my order. I think the Sherman is finally being refined to perfection, or close to it. 

 

Do you know which sellers DO have the updated rim + hangers version?

On Ali its a mixed bad of "new 2020 version" (lol) and "new pedal hanger version", previous update that raised pedals 1cm, NOT this 2nd pedal hanger update that you say gove clearance for NEW wider rim. I dont see how a wider rim will help with tyre (not) coming off due to too small diameter though? Unless they changed tyre as well to a  different inner diameter (bead section)

Without ever even seeing the Sherman, my guess is that the outer diameter of the rim isn’t the issue here. When the tire bead bulges out from the rim, the issue is most likely that the exact oppo

I agree, I cant see how a tube change will make any difference to this problem whatsoever. The tube will always inflate as big as the inside of the tyre so the problem will remain. If anything, a smal

That says its because battery prices went up.  It is not because demand for the sherman went up

Oh.....😐

Demand for the cells... not the wheel. Most factories have been operating with less workers due to covid resulting in slower production of cells. As supply decreases and demand stays the same (or slightly increases in our case), the price increases.

I know Ewheels has the updated version with no scraping and a new motor rim, but I don't buy wheels from anyone else. I'd recommend contacting a representative from a retailer near your geographic region. :)
