Default wheels for proline tires

just finished glueing 8 pairs of caliber tires to proline wheels and I have 4 more pairs to go.



sealing those holes in wheels is a pain. so my question is who makes larger diameter wheels without premade venting holes?

Proline V2 have holes

Not sure if Hotbodies D8 wheels or New RC8B wheels do have them

Any other oversize buggy wheels are available?

No AKA as they have too large offset for D8.

the AE wheels are your best bet no holes on the v2 wheels
I just put some clear tape over them on the inside I to do
not think that they came with holes in them but get the
AE 83mm wheels they are also a bit wider than the v2s

Those tires have to be mounted on those wheels - no other wheel would owrk -


correct me if Im wrong, but that was a big deal when they came out.
