Default Large Diameter spoked buggy wheels

Are there any spoked 1/8 buggy wheels out there that have the slightly larger diameter like the dished Proline V2, Losi, and AKA wheels?

This is not a comparison on which performs better. I'm not too concerned that "dished wheels" will perform better, break less, more aerodynamic etc. So please refrain from the "why don't you just use dish wheels? they're so much better."

I just want to use AKA tires on spoked wheels because of personal preference towards spoked wheels.

thanks

I like the spoke wheels too so I can see what the brake bias is doing and if the front end is unloading, and so on. I'd like to see proline wabash in the V2 size.

Kyosho MP9 Wheels are kinda spoked...I'm pretty sure they are the larger diameter.

Personally I think they are kinda ugly...lol but might be your ticket

VP-pro has as spoked rim in the large diameter, but I don't think its a true spoke like your thinking, its like a dish with three holes, looks kind of like the Mugen rims.

That wheel is the largest diameter legal size wheel you can get per ROAR rules.

I just switched from truggy to buggy and wasn't aware of the different wheel/tire sizes and had already bought a set of rulux buggy wheels and dyed em' black with hopes of using them with AKA's but the only option was to wrap em' around dish wheels. If any of you have a new set of standard size Prolines (soft compound) layin' around that you want to sell send me a pm because I still want to run the black rulux's sometime because they look slick.

I emailed JConcepts and asked them if they had plans to release the Rulux buggy wheels in the "max up" size that would fit AKA tires and they responded no...but maybe with enough interest they'll change their mind.

Kyosho MP9's come with AKA tires mounted to their wheels. Good luck getting a set cheap though, people are spending $25.00+ on ebay for a set.

now we have conflicting reports...lol

A couple of guys from my LHS ordered the Kyosho wheels and I don't think they would order anything that wasn't the larger diameter wheels.

These wheels look sweet. I can only find them in Europe though. Does someone carry them in the US?
