Schumacher wheel fittings - adaptors to fit other makes of wheel?

Hi

I'm just wondering if anyone knows whether I can get new (non-Schumacher)
wheels for my XTR Desert Storm truck.  I've put some old Midnight Pumpkin
tyres on the wheels but the wheels are a little narrow for the tyres (not
too bad though - didn't glue them on and only came off once!) and I was
wondering if I could get wider wheels (and therefore tyres) for this truck.
When looking at some wheels in my LHS I noticed that different makes have
different fittings for the wheels - none appeared to match my truck's though
some did have adaptors to fit different makes of vehicle (just not
Schumacher).

Does anyone know where I might get some adaptors (in the UK) to go between
the 'standard' fitting (whatever that is) and Schumacher's?

Thanks

David

what do you want them for, if it's for road use the one's from a BIG 6 might
fit as they use the same diff (TT), if the output shafts are the same is
another matter, my friend has seen these wheel conversions and he has
recently been to S.P.E.C racing somewhere in Croydon, and also Mick Charles
models in Ewell or Tolworth in Surrey give them a go.
All the best
