Well, the scte tires are glued to the wheels. Also, the wheels for the SCTE do not come with beadlock rings.

Default wheel choice

From what I've read, zero offset wheels should be used, and zero offset protrac wheels should be ok.

But is there any reason slash rear or front offset wheel do not work? Does it just require trimming the body or do they interfere with something else? Just asking since I have no zero offset wheels, but I have a boat load of slash front and rear offsets.

Sorry if answered already, thread grows pretty fast.

The slash rims will make the truck super wide. The Pro-Trac rims will rub on the arms in the front. You would have to trim some of the ribbing on the inside.

The protrac wheels will work in a bind but they rub the front under full lock steering. I would recommend sticking with the Losi wheel. There are plenty out there and they are priced fairly. As for the traxxas wheels, any wheel with a 12mm hex should work, it just depends how wide you want the truck to be. If you use anything wider than the protrac offset/losi offset, the truck is outside of ROAR legality.

I can understand making the car super wide with slash offset wheel, but I'm guessing they will still work right? Although the car may not be as nimble.

Guess I'll just get all new losi wheels.

If you are just bashing there is really no issue besides rubbing on your body. If you are racing it will be quite a bit outside the legal width, especially with the fronts on. With the rears you will be a half inch too wide and withe the fronts you will be almost an inch too wide.

We toyed with the idea of not gluing them, but then we would likely get more people that would be dismayed that they are not glued.

As far as the beadlock rings, the truck comes with chrome ones. All of the other colors out there (chrome red and black) as well as the new neon yellow(LOSB7024) ones fit both trucks. We will also be releasing another color or two.
