    I dont think they make any. I havent seen any atleast. But what most people do is make the PVC a bit bigger and then slide the rim all the way back so it gives the effect of deep dish. Check RCDrift.com to see the tutorial on exactly how...

    these have a huge deep dish when set on the wide side. i have 1 pair but they are kinda gay on the rear only. These are perfect fit for a 200mm body on a 190mm car. They fit it perfect and have a huge deep dish

    The Tamiya deep dish wheels work better on an elec car with a 200mm body. I'm still trying to squeeze them under a 190mm body and it just ain't workin'... Arg. :x

    I've gotten the deep dish rims from both Ebay and Tower. Tower even stocks the rubber tires that go with them...

    the narrow ones will fit 190mm bodies on both offsets. That is what is on the vette in the Tamiya Cars forum(electric onroad). They are set to wide in the back and narrow in the front.
    that is the body i am using for concours at the TCS race, but i need to fix the rollcage!
