Default Need Help Finding 1/10 2.2 Dish Buggy Wheels to Fit...

This seems to be easier said than done...

I want to mount 2.2 Dirt Hawgs on my buggy. These tires are 1.25" wide for the front and 1.75" wide for the rear.

My 4wd buggy uses 12mm hex mounts on front and rear. I could also go with pin mount if I have to by removing the hexes. The axle size looks to be 1/8" or about 3.2mm.

I am looking for 2.2 dish wheels (yellow or if they are white I can dye them) that have a 12mm hex mount that are 1.0" wide for the fronts and 1.5" wide for the rear. Like I said, I could also go with pin mount if necessary.

I have looked everywhere but most hobby sites don't list the width of the wheels or the type of mounting! I know that Kyosho and Traxxas use the 12mm hex, but that hasn't helped me find the right sizes.

Hopefully one of the buggy experts here can point me to the wheels that fit the criteria above, I would appreciate it if someone knows for sure what will work. Thanks!

I found some Kyosho wheels that I think will work at a Korean website (www.rcmaul,com)! I had to translate it using Google translate but it had diagrams showing the wheel dimensions and offset - so it looks like the Kyosho W5028 (now the W5202) and the W5026 are just the right 2.2 buggy sizes!


Pretty cool to have all the dimensions - here is a link if anyone is interested. If you click around on the smaller pix you can find one with all the wheel dimensions. You can do a search by part number as well. If you search by size remember to search for "56 size" or possibly 56mm, because as you know everything is metric just about everywhere else so you won't find 2.2" rims.

Once I had the correct part number I was able to find them on line easily.
