I've also just been hand launching with the 3D wing. Once you are comfortable with the plane and the setup you could give that a try too. Then the wheels don't matter...

The DuBro ones are really thick (and draggy) for this plane, but are more likely to be able to ride on the grass. I used these for a long time when flying off of grass.

Hmmm...

I think dark, but I'm afraid that trying to paint it may destroy the looks of it since the dyeing didn't do anything.

Do you have any of the scraps of the canopy left to experiment on?...

Just re-read your post... I think your idea of a shim is the way to go... Then a little more covering to hide it.

Shouldn't be a big deal.
