i'm about to upgrade my slash 4x4 to 17mm hex wheels... i think i'll go with the aka racing kit (i have the mip cvd, and i know that mip sells a 17mm kit that suits their mips... is it also ok ?)... i'd like to ask what pre-mounted wheels are OK to fit, no offset problems, for the slash 4x4... so far, i've thought about the duratrax lookup buggy 1/8 c2 for mud/grass/general bushings, and the duratrax shotgun 1/8 buggy c2 for sand tracks... can someone confirm that they're ok ? also, i'm looking (always pre-mounted) for on-road,asphalt wheels, but so far i haven't been able to locate anything... can some suggest me ? (in general, what "shore" range is ok for the stock slash ?

If you are after general bashing 17mm tire's I would look on ebay at the suprasales tire's and wheel combo's. You can get a set of 4 for under 30.00. They are great long lasting basher tire's. There is alot of talk of people running 17mm adapter'swith MIP's and breaking them, I'd go with the MIP adapter's as well.

i have proline 17mm adapater wit a MIP drive line....no problem here....i got proline split six n proline knuckles m2...great tires
I use hole shots from the losi 8 wheels, work very well.
Also have trencher SC tires on 17mm rims work excellent with extra power

People say to use the MIP adapters with the MIP driveshafts, beacuase someone on here had bad luck with the AKA adapters, but if it happens to them, it may not happen to you.
