It's also 8% in rim width. That's a pretty substantial change in anything on a race car. But for the total car width, it's not nearly so much. As for looks, that depends on who is doing the looking.

Fair enough as soon as I can locate some USGT Ride spec tires I'll get a set of the wheels. Great price too!

Anyone found 24mm wheels with enough offset to approach 200mm with the average TC? I have found a couple with 2mm offset, but not more.

How about larger wheel hexes and/or spacers with the +2mm

I think we should all contact different companies like HPI Exotek Tamiya ect and ask about a 24mm 3 mm offset spoke wheel

or wait and see if they do it on their own

Get yourself a set of these Tamiya hexes that will add +4 or +5mm over most standard hexes....and they look cool.

we used to put 24mm cs27 tires on 26mm hpi rims and it worked fine, or at least good enough for me to win every time

Just bought some 26mm HPI M double spoke wheels to go with the new ride tires to complete the E46 330 ZHP replica!

The wheels are good but it's too bad the front end of that body is nothing like a 330 ZHP unfortunately.

Yeah you have to paint and cut to make it look right instead of using the stickers. I am actually using the 200mm coupe version anyway, HPI doesnt have a picture of that on their site anymore.
