What wheels are we suppose to use with 12mm hex's? Mainly need the fronts.

I've been using AE and JC wheels but the AE wheels don't have the outer bead and the JC wheels are a crazy tight fit on the hex's
TLR wheels work fine on the rear.

I like to use the DE Borrego wheels for the DEX410. The fronts fit perfect. But the xrays rear axle is thicker than the 410. So I drill the hole out with a 13/64(.203) drill bit. One pass with the drill and everything works great.

Is there a disadvantage to using the Xray wheels? Do most change to 12 mm hex due to availability?

The only possible disadvantage to using the std wheels would if you find it hard to buy them, I swapped to 12mm hexes purely because I has lots of good tyres on 22-4 wheels & didn't want to bin them along with the TLR car.

I tried the progressive springs when I first got the '13 car, I didn't like very much, I found they let the car roll a little too much before they stiffened up & on the high grip Astro tracks we have, that meant too much grip roll.

In the end I swapped to AE springs as there is more choice.
