Default TLR 22 hex vs B4.1 hex

I have not done the hex conversion on my B4.1 yet but was wondering if someone how has could help me out. After the conversion can you use the same rim/tire on the b4.1 and TLR 22 ? are the offsets the same and or the shaft size different? thanks for any help

Going by Pro-line's website:

front wheels- KYO RB5 and ASC B4's(with hex) are the same
TLR22 is its own

Rear wheels- RB5, 22 and B4's(with hex) are interchangeable

Shaft sizes- RB5 and 22 use a 5mm axle
B4's use a 3/16 axle

Default what about offset?

So I'm curious to the offset....are they all equal for the rear wheels?

I know Jconcepts has the mono wheel for RB5, B4.1 (with hex), but the 22 wheels are completely a different "mono" wheel. I think it's cuz the offset but not 100% sure.

Now Proline has the velocity wheel that fits all 3 cars but sure they fit...but is the offsets correct with the proline wheels??

Can anyone confirm the true offsets?
Thanks

I noticed the same thing with Jcons rear hexs and DE TLR 22 wheels on my B4.1 when i mounted them up recently...

i will measure the pin drive B4.1 DE's vs's the hex TLR22 DE's on my B4.1 and report back...

Just checked my B4.1 with the below mounted no tyres

Pin drive DE Wheels mounted..................243mm

Jcons Hex #2091 and DE TLR 22 wheels....244-245mm


There may be a 1mm variance in other B4.1s because of shimming,camber etc.....

I cant see the Jcons or Proline TLR wheels being much different too the DE's offset

The Kyosho RB5 and AE B4.1 use the same JConcepts Mono Wheels.

Yah I'm assuming the JC wheels only work as advertised...RB5 and b4.1 are the same wheel.....while the 22 has a different wheel cuz of the 2mm different offset??

If so...proline should re-advertise their velocity wheels. It would suck to run these and then figure out they don't fit in the box! LOL
