Default Associated Wheels help

Hey everyone, I just got a B4 parts car and am looking to slowly but surely get it running. I've just got some simple questions about wheels, do the B3 wheels fit on the B4? front and rear? Would either the fronts or rears stick out too far and make the width "illegal" or anything? How about T4 rears, I want to put Proline Speed Hawgs on some T4 rears and use them on the B4 (obviously here I don't care about how far they stick out). I did this with T3 rear wheels for my B3 long ago; but why are the T4 wheels discontinued at Tower Hobbies? Thanks for any help!

I'm not sure if the B3 fronts would be much different but the rears are alot different. They would "stick out" alot more than the B4 rims...

I can tell you that T3 wheels do not fit on a T4 truck. I don't know if this will help you. But I tried!!

If your use B3 wheels on the rear of a B4 they will stick out to far to be legal.
The fronts have the same offset but most run the thicker B4 wheels.

kaspar's statement is false.

I've been using the same old black dish wheels used on the T2 & T3 on my T4. They have the same offset too. I know they will be discontinued someday, but my LHS continues to get them in.

The B3 & B4 rear wheels have different offsets however.
