I have a Jammin X2CRT also. You can use 0 offset wheels but they rub on the steering balls ends pretty bad when turning. If you want to use 0 offset wheels without that issue then pick up a set of the OFNA 15mm hex extentions. Ofna Part # 30058

Hey bud, i am with you. I have been using Losi 8-T 1.0 version wheels. As these losi 1.0 are retiring, sometimes you will get good deals at the local hobby shops.

To answer your question, the "off set" is in reference to where wheel hex is on the rim. 1/2 off set is in the middle of the rim while "0" off set is on the outside. To add to the rubbing on the arm as mentioned, If you were to run "0" off sets your truck will not be as wide and IMO look silly too.

Couldn't the OP install some wider hub hexes that would allow using the zero offset stuff?

Do the extesions and be done with the 1/2 offset. You break a rim , strip a hex or want to buy a working tire rim combo off your neighbor you will have a better shot because most trucks today are setup for 0 offset.

Thanks for explain this to me that's what I look for.

Thanks everybody for the links.

So if I use 1/2 offset wheels with stock setup would be the same than 0 offset wheels with extenders?There is any advantage of running extended hubs other than be able to find wheels easier(o offset)or there is another advantage.

Thanks all for the help here LOL.
