Don't go 1/2 offset if you have a Losi Eight-T 2.0. Then you go 0 offset.

Damn I already ordered them. They won't fit? I thought they would give me more track width for bashing?

They will fit but they will mess quite a bit with your handling. They will make the car too wide for the suspension to handle. Sorry mate!

Thanks for the info even though that sucks! At least I didn't glue them yet! I will order the zero offsets and sell the other ones or send them back. Thanks again for the heads up!

If your bashing I would highly advice Against the Rulux wheels, Along with their Mono Dish wheels. They just aren't up to par of say AKA, Losi or Proline. The Rulux's like to crack along the Spokes and eventually the center hex shears from the spokes and well, you have a failure.

JC is just recently releasing a new truggy wheel as they know darn well the Rulux and Mono's have issues. The bead is Similar to the same old MT bead, But its a lot shorter and flatter Somewhat similar to a VTR but at the same time Not.

I don't agree. I have used one set of rulux on the Revo for almost 9 Gallons now and they are still fine. I have Badlands on them. Of course, the Revo is not the same as a Truggy but I still think they will hold up OK unless you have an accident or make jumps and land on tarmac over and over again.

Trust me on this one, They are Weak compared to other brands. There's Darn good reason they came up with a new Rim and Tire/Bead Combo.

Well that is too bad but I appreciate the input anyway. I just came across them and liked the way they looked with the Badlands so I thought I would give them a shot. I never expected that they would be weak or have quality issues. I was just looking for something different than the usual dish type wheel.

I agree with the others. I got them because the looked cool. Did one club race and one cracked. Not thrilled with their durability at all.

Do you drive on a large 1/8 track ? On smaller tracks with little jumps they were never a problem, Start Sailing 40-50' quads and you'll soon realize they aren't all they should be.
