Default New wheels

Hi.

I have a Tamiya Baja King.

I have got some new oil shocks and a new truck body on it, and now im after some new wheels for it too.

What would people reccomend for it? The standard ones are 12mm hex, about 80mm in diameter (with tyres), and the offset is roughly 1" (from the hex hole to the rim edge).

From what i have read, i should stay with roughly the same overall diameter, otherwise i will burn out the motor. Is this true?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Something like these:

if you put bigger tires on it you have a chance that you will burn your motor up unless you go with a smaller pinon gear

Thanks.

Anyone know of some wheels and tyres with roughly the same overall diameter that will fit my car?
