The new rim is brand new.  They just finished testing it and had to make the pedal hangers wider to accommodate it. Im pretty sure they will be shipping with black buttons.   Red button on top will have higher pedal hangers I think, but not the new rim(?)

 

I'm currently waiting on my sherman from ewheels.

WHEN will it start shipping from China? 
The "new" sherman with the "new rim" - that is :)

Its on the boat for ewheels at least.  The boat is expected at Port on the 4th, and then has to get unloaded customs etc.  There is also rumor the port is backed up.  So it could be a few weeks after it reaches port before the wheels are unloaded.

I ordered from AliExpress in Jan 20, 2021. Hard to say when it shipped out since tracking was iffy. I received it about 2 weeks ago in April 2021. 
 

I put some calipers on the rim and it shows 60mm wide. It is a red button model.

What are the real world differences of having the new wider rim vs the previous narrower rim? Stronger but less nimble?

Supposedly it should fit the tyre better. 
SEveral riders have reported bad fitting of the tyre causing it to "wobble" (not being perfectly seated in the beads) as a result of the rim diameter being to small vs the tyre inner diameter.

I dont see how a wider rim can fix a too small diameter, but maybe as the tyre is allowed to flare out a bit more it might get easier to get more spot on, though i doubt it.
So I will still ride in high PSIs when my wide rim sherm arrives in a month. Last thing i want is a tyre rolling of the rim ;)

My v1 rim never had a problem. I now have a v2 rim. I think the newer rim doesnt bunch the tire as much and has better shoulder spacing. I run 20psi on the old rim/off road tire. I now run 20psi on new rim and pirelli (80/80/14).

I found that approx 85-86mm is as wide as the sherman wheel well is. Technically, the rim could fit MUCH wider. 3" = roughly 76mm. A true 3" tire (at widest tread), will easily fit in width of the sherman wheel opening.
