    Question Rim sizes question

    Hey all,

    I am trying to find some visually stimulating rims/wheels for my pede 4x4. I'm kinda tired of the same 2 models I currently have. I know the stock rims and tires are 2.8s, but I see most of the nicer wheels are 2.2s. I have read and learned that some 2.2s fit the pedes. Anyone wanna educate me as to witch/how/why? I mean, I know its all about the offset. What I don't know, is what offset can I use and not use, and what is the offset difference (if there is one) between the front and the rear.

    Opinions anyone?

    Thanks!

    ROCK ON!!!!

    You can use Rpm Revolver Wide Wheel base Wheels to fit any 2.2 tire
    Here is the link to them http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTAE8&P=7
    You can also see a vid where jang speaks about the offset http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzTMDVN4cY8

    Most 2.2 tires are kind of small on the pede. For 2.8 don't forget about the jconcepts rulux.

    Was about to ask about 2.2 wheels myself but in particular has anyone tried the Axial Rebel 2.2 wide or is the offset not enough to clear?

    was planning on using them with these tires
