Default firstorm tires??

Is there a company other then hpi that sales rims for these trucks? $15 for 2 1/10th scale rims is just stupid. Does anyone know if the offset for the mst-1 is the same as the firestorm?

Do they use a 12mm hex?

If so, you should be able to mount up RPM wheels, as well as Team Academy wheels.

Suprised a bit, the Firestorm doesn't let you use AE wheels or losi wheels?

They use a 12mm hex. I'm sure I could shim them & mount losis or something, I just want to find something w/ the right offset.

I would contact RPM then for sure. I think you will get the most options there.

Also, if you know anyone with a traxxas rustler or stampede, give the wheels a try on the vehicle. They use a 12mm hex as well.

the firestorm uses standard wheels, so any losi/AE wheels plus aftermarkete ones should fit. also, it uses hexes all round, so get rear wheels all round if possible (as front ones will have some stupid attatchment)

I want something that is going to have the correct offset. I picked up a firestorm roller because it honestly looks like a better li//bl platform then a t-4 or xxx-t does. I'm sure I can put the wheels on there, but does anyone know of what wheels will fit w/ the right offset?
