I think the z car truggy uses 1/2 offset wheels. I saw the pics of the serpent ones too and one of them was wearing 1/2 offset wheels. I figured the production one will come out with zero offset ones though.

yes, but you can run the buggy hexes with 1/2 offset and it will be the same width as stock hex with 0 offset.


Jammin X2 CRT uses 1/2 offset also but when i ran the X2 i ran it with stock hexes with 0 offset and nothing would out turn it.

I Run the 1/2 offsets on my Truggy. I have also used 0, but I can't find a rim as tough as the Stock Z-CAR rims and they don't make 0 offset.

Would the Hyper ST fall into the "old" category using 1/2 offsets?
