Arrow CRT.5 Rims

I can't seem to find a site that carries an assortment of rims for the CRT.5.

If you know of a site that carries such, please post the link here.


P.S. I'm looking for black 5 spoke rims, specifically.

I haven't seen anything like that in a true CRT.5 rim. There black spoked Traxxas Truck rims that will fit the crt.5, but they are 2" wide truck rims.

I have a similar question. My early crt.5 ARR pro kit came with two sets of rims. One set is the ofna crt.5 rim that uses 12mm hexes. They are easy to find. The other set was a bit wider rim that uses pins. I'd like to find more of these if anyone knows what rim they are.

The CRT.5 can use any B2/B3 rear rims.

I know some who are running truck rear rims too... and it looks pretty cool with truck tires.

I run both buggy and truck wheels depending on were i'm driving. The buggy wheels keep the car more nibble, but the truck wheels make it very forgiving and stable. The truck wheels also give you more ground clearance for rutted tracks. I'd like to narrow some truck tires to buggy width to see if and can get the best of both.

Just another quick question regarding CRT.5 wheels...

Would any 2.2" truck buggy wheel fit the CRT.5?

If so, I should be able to put any of these on the CRT.5, right?...

Nitrohouse has nothing but the basic styles for the CRT.5... that is why I'd like to know if any 2.2 wheel would fit the CRT.5. I'd like to be able to choose from the various wheel styles in the links I posted.

Yes they will, You can get the hexed ones or the pinned ones. I prefer hexed. I use jato hexes.

Get a set of the new mini truggie rims and
order some custom wheel dots. Having them
printed up with your personal,one of, designs
is what I call bling.

Those are fine, but I'm looking for actual 5 spoke wheels, like those made by HPI, to fit the CRT.5... and from what you said, portansky, all I should need is a hex adapter for the HPI 2.2's to fit?
