they are PL yellow wheels, glued dirt webs front and rears on them, and cant get front to fit!

the industry front hex standards (or lack thereof) is wacky. there's a .3mm variance among brands. the ones you have are probably the b44 type offset. it'll go on, just be careful to align the hex sides then use the wheel nut to torque it down.

FYI Absolute Hobbyz has spur gears and a good amount of other parts, I ordered the spur just in case. After my first day of practice though I do not think it's going to be an issue. What I really can't wait for though is after market clamping wheel hex nuts. On my first run on my 10th lap rounding a turn watched my left front wheel roll off in a different direction, it was quite hilarious (swear I tightened the nut). and of course lost the pin LOL,
and I did use grease to help keep the pin in. Other than that no issues and man is thing fun to drive.

yes Torrance, had hell on the first wheel getting it on! So I checked the second wheel; I took off the hex and pushed it in! Unbelievably tight! So I put pin back in and tightened it down with the wheel nut to push it on! It didnt line up either side at first! I had to get my exacto and Dr. up the hex in the wheel and try again! I must have got it right, the axle threads stick out way past the nut! Anybody grinding them down like in touring cars?
I use yellow wheels exclusively
any other brand yellow wheel fitment would be better? I mainly use JC wheels
but they were out of stock and bought PL from online hobby shop, all they had were PL in stock I knew Ty used PL wheels, so that is why I went with PL wheels
If anybody else is using any other brand yellow wheel let me know whick ones fit the optional smaller hexes on the front that are easy to get on!

use wheels made for the tlr22 2wd buggy. they have a slightly larger hex size and their offset makes the front track width wider.

You need to use the 22-4 fronts. The 22b front wheels are to narrow

I went through this whole wheel thing also, I spoke with DE wheels and I did the comparison to the wheels that come with the kit, and I found that the 22tlr 2wd are only slightly narrower and work perfect also I use RB6 wheels in the rear. I personally like the speedline wheels.

the 2wd wheels are only .020-.030" narrower as quoted by Dave at DE when I asked the same question. it's all about the offsets, here are the part numbers should you want to look up the wheels that work from DE, DER-SB-LFY and DER-SB-KRY.

The wheels for the 22-4 fit exactly with the correct offset. 4wd tires will fit the front better than 2wd drive wheels. I have personally used TLR wheels and AKA EVO, both are perfect.
