    Wheel offsets?

    What offset wheel is everyone using? Stock is +4mm. HPI offers a lot of 3mm. Any suggestions?

    3 has worked fine for me. Watch out for those that have deep hexes as it could rub the stock axle carrier.

    Thanks! I was thinking 3 would be good to go but wanted to see what others had experienced before spending the money.

    3's are fine, but 6's have been said to be too much and rub the fenders. I have 3mm HPI and Traxxas 4-tec (also 3mm?) – both fit perfectly.

    Again, thanks! Just got the Boss brushed version. What a blast. Brushless might be too much! Time to start customizing and wheels are a good place to start. Now if we only had more bodies. What do you say, Pro-Line?

    Check the Spice-brand wheels well as HPI (RC Mart has em). Spice's have some really beautiful finishes (VOLK TE37 in bronze or gunmetal, the black-centered mesh, etc).

    IIRC the Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0" wheels are 2.5mm offset, they fit mine just fine too
    Aw, Biscuits!
