On those pistons run either 32.5 or 30 all around to start.

Ok...so, I got this damn thing all put together and electronics mounted. Put the setup wheels on an through it on the board. I fine tuned my turn buckles to get the camber and toe settings. I went to throw a set of wheels on it to check weight distribution and ride height. That is when the wheels fell of so to speak...

I got about eight sets of wheels...many brand new. About half of them are on DE speedline ST wheels and the others on TLR wheels. Neither of the two will work on this thing. Is there any axle and hex combo that will allow me to use the wheels from my 22T?

At this point, I don't have a ST to run this Saturday. Something in the back of my head told me not to pull the electronics today and finish the build on the T5m...ugh

I run nothing but the DE rims 2.2 for this truck and never had a problem. Not sure about the TLR wheels.

There's no combination of parts to make tlr wheels work on a T5. If there is, you wouldn't want to do it.

I'll wager a guess that when you attempt to mount the wheel on the T5M you can barely thread the nut on if at all. If that's the case, you're trying to mount a 22T wheel, which due to different hub width and offset, is not compatible.

DE does make a wheel that is designed for the AE (aw, I think). But I have the ones that are listed as "22T." They appear to slide all the way onto the hex but, the axle doesn't protrude through the wheel for the nut. Strangely enough the DE wheels listed for the AE look very similar to the TLR wheels by looking at a photo but the TLR wheels won't work either.

Ok, so next question...

Is there any way to successfully and safely remove tires and inserts from a wheel and then remount them on a new wheel?

Put them in a sealed container with an acetone soaked rag

I've run DE wheels on my 22T and my old T5M. If you look closely at them side by side, the TLR versions will leave the nut clearly visible to the outside. In other words, it sits atop the face of the wheel. The T5M version has wheel nut recessed into the wheel quite a bit.

My guess is the TLR spindle is longer than the Associated counterpart which means the TLR wheel is going to have more space between the hex and the nut.

Picked up a t5m roller. Is there a little more room for electronics than the b5m? I have a Hobbywing v3.1 in my b5m and it's so tight. This t5M will be my 3rd class, so I'm on a budget and want to see if I like it. Was going to get a hobbywing v2.1, which I think is a little bigger than the v3.1. Thanks guys.

Edit: My RX is a futaba r304sb, which is pretty small.
