    I undersand that the ruslter uses 12 hexall around. I want to know if i can use front and rear wheels from a rustler on the rear of a jato. Will it fit and fucntion properly without any fitment issues?

    Also, what wheels from other vehicles will fit the jato without any problems.
    Thanx

    I know the rear Rustler wheels will fit the rear Jato with no problem. I not sure about the front Rustler wheels. Funny thing that I just brought some front Rustler wheels by mistake and returned them I should of test to see if the fit the Rear of the Jato.

    Yeah, would of been good if you knew if the fronts would fit as well. So the rear wheels from any rustler will fit a jato with absolutely no problem.Correct?

    VXL Rustler

    Edit: It’s a good thing you brought that up because it slips my mind there are two types of Rustlers. The Nitro Rustler uses the same wheels Front and back as the Jato. The VXL have all 12mm hex thats why I took them back because there wasn't a place to put the bearings in until I found out I got the wrong tires and I remember looking at the package and it saying VXL Rustler.

    That is correct the Nitro Rustler uses both front and back wheels as the Jato.

    Nitro rustler and jato uses the same front and rear wheels. The front wheels of the electric rustler are the same as the rears on the nitro rustler and jato. The rear electric rustler wheels uses a completely different offset.
    Simply the best. The beautiful Traxxas SRT and TCP

    Yup works fine just watch your offsets, they can be slightly different from elec, to nitro. I did this to set my rustler up for a 1:1 look with a 69 charger body
