Default Someone please measure recessed area on proline or panther 1/8 rims

Can someone quickly measure the recessed area on there proline or panther rims (or any other rims that have a recessed area where the thread nut sits when you mount the rims up) . The wheels I have only have 20mm spacing. Heck my thin walled Jammin socket driver is more than that. Trying to confirm with the company that prolines are wider.

25mm on my proline rims.
Where did you buy them? My buddy bought a set of new rims off ebay listed as buggy rims.. They ended up being the real small mt wheels or something silly like that. They looked just like a buggy wheel but no wrenches would fit.
He sold em back on ebay, made 4 bucks and bought some proline wheels.

I think I found a solution that didn't require any rim modification. But, considering the rim is supposed to be a proline clone, curious why the hole is so small so I am still working with the seller on this and if he has a replacement wouldn't mind going with that.

Assuming you're talking about buggy rims... here's what mine measure:
Old style Panther (no logo) = 25mm
new style Panther (with logo) = 27.3 mm
Ofna Ulralight = 23mm
Pro-line Dish = 27.75mm
Pro-line spoke = 27.75mm
? (I think it's a Kyosho spoked rim) = 21.9mm

The sellers rims were about 20mm . I found using a Jammin wrench I could still grab enough nut to torque them down, but I don't think I will be buying rims from him again, though tires is another story as the compound he has in crimefighter like treads works on the track.
