    2.2 wheel question

    hi guys this is my first post to this fourm after many hours of reading and searching.

    i just bought a 4x4 stampede and want to run 2.2 tires and wheels. after my searching the only wheel that i can find that guys are running is the rpm with rock crawler.

    i have found th mudrock challernger beadlock that looks like it will work

    rmp list its wheel with 7.1mm of backspacing
    mudrock list its wheel with +8.5 mm of offset

    is backspacing and offset the samething?

    is so will this wheel fit since it has more offset?

    thanks

    I'm not positive RC offset and backspacing works the same as 1:1 vehicles, but most likely. If so, then this is what it would look like:



    Side note, depending on how much power you are running, you might have a hard time keep the tires on beadlocks.

    do you think the wheel with +8.5mm of offset will fit?

    Well, the GMade are 42mm wide. 21mm would be the center line or zero offset. Add 8.5 of positive offset and your backspacing is 29.5 vs 7.1 of the RPM. Might want to check my math, but I don't believe they will work. For reference from RPM website:

    I'm sure I tried my Gmade's off my Rock crawler before I sold them and the would not fit on the front.

    So I'am safe to save say the rpm is the only one that fits

    You need the back spacing close to the edge other wise the rim hits the hub carrier.

    Rpm wide wheels will work, I had them with mashers.
