Default Wheel hexes for 8mm axles?

I'm looking for some clamping aluminum wheel hexes that can fit 8mm axles, but I'm not having any luck; they all seem to have 6mm inner diameters instead. Does anyone know of a set that will fit 8mm axles?

What size "Across Flats" Hex are you looking for? 12MM? 14MM? 17MM?

The hex size doesn't actually matter as I'm going to be using them as collets to support a body on 8mm body posts. I did a similar thing with some Tekno RC hexes on the 6mm body posts on my HPI bullets several years ago. Much more durable than any other solution I've found.

I eventually figured out that 8mm axles are the standard size for 17mm hexes, so the problem is solved. I should've just measured a spare set of 17mm hexes to begin with.

Yeah 8mm axles are the standard size for 1/8 scale buggy, truggy, and truck 17mm hexes
