If it’s the aluminium floor that’s an AE model rather than the air floor IE models.

The aluminium floor models don’t have the trim tabs at the rear, therefore you’re able to get a huge range of launch wheels to mount, generally loads cheaper too.
I hope you haven’t ordered the hooked wheels from pacer ?
It’s the straight legged launch wheels you need for a T35/T40ae.
Martin 👍🏻
Alright martin,

I'm looking at getting wheels asap for my honwave T30 ae2 as next thursday is to be flat calm and has pollack written all over it, might I ask why the straight legged wheels differ from the curved legged wheels? Could you send me link to the wheels needed for my T30 ae2?
The curved legs are to bring the launch wheels around the trim tabs on the air floor sibs.. You don't have the air floor version, so no need for you to worry about trim tabs.
Any suitable length/fitting wheels will do for your sib.
Hopefully someone with a AE honwave will point you in the right direction.

That is interesting, as I was sold the curved ones for my T40, so these are wrong ?
PS I have not fitted them, and could this be why I couldnt work out why the form, was not right

There are two types, both with curves. One is curved conpletley back on itself in a V shape. The other has a slight curve.

These are the kind you want for a solid floor:

Solid floor wheels
And these are what you want for an air floor:

Air floor wheels


I bought these ones from eBay for my zodiac, which has a solid floor.

Andy, these are the type you need for yours.
Not a complete idiot - some parts are missing.

My apologies, A slight error on my behalf, I should have explained in more detail.

The air floor wheels that ChrisParish has kindly posted an image of are the curved legs i was refering to. This design is to allow Launch Wheels to be fitted to a "High Pressure V Hull Air Floor" sib with trim tabs included in the hull design... Typical examples being the Honwave T32ie - T38ie models.

The AE (Aluminium floor) model honwaves and many other boats will take the "CRANKED" launch wheels (ChrisParish's first image).
I have exactly the same "CRANKED" wheels as ChrisParish has posted, they are fitted to my F-Rib 375. Long and short sets are available.

Hope that helps clear the confusion.

Martin
