Default Which Truggy wheels are most durable?

J concepts, Losi, AKA, Proline?.

Is it a good idea to keep buying 1/2inch offset wheels or is it better to get a hub extension and run 0 offset? (by better i men more durable)

I have always had good luck with Panther and Prolines.

Panther doesn't make truggy wheels.

I personally prefer proline or AKA wheels. They are light and strong.

As for offset, what truggy is it on? Losi 1.0? If it is, I would stick with 1/2 unless you plan on making the jump to a 2.0 or any other truggy really. Most truggies use zero offset so that is something you want to keep in mind if you are planning on changing rides.

I like the hub extender and 0 offset, its easier to get to the nut.

I've had awesome luck with AKAs.

The soft compound has lasted longer than my XTR holeshots.

I did the "0" offset mod for my CRT and don't run hub extenders.
