Will it fit? yes

Will the offset be correct? no

There is some good info about this on www.rc10t4.com, just do a little looking.

Thanks, found it quickly under "Tips & Tricks". Front XXXT rims are 1/4" narrower each!

Is it just the front buggy rims that are goofy? No bearing in the wheels.

Losi XXX Buggy, and Kyosho RB5 buggy do not use bearings in the wheels, the bearings are housed in the hub carrier. Very nice design.

If they did a similar design for trucks, it may be possible to use the same wheel front and rear, eliminating the need for 2 different types of rims (I believe Traxxas does this on their 2wd trucks)

I thought the rear had the same offset, just not the front.

In 2wd buggy, the rear rims are interchangable between Proline/AE and Losi, but for Truck, the offset is different.
