what wheels? what ties?

I am looking for a new set of wheels and ties for my Tamyia TA-02 chassis.

I need the wheels have 2mm offset, because the body i have is a bit wide, which case the wheels "hide" inside the body.

and I also want the wheels to be black colour. I usually race on on-road race track.

Any suggestion of what wheels and ties will suit my chassis and it looks good?

i have check out the HPI site, so is every wheels have the same Hexgon shape, so that different chassis still can use it or, there is some differents.

I check out the Hong Knog model control site, the got some wheels that is very cheap in price, but i never havent heard about those band....

is it good to worth a try ?

they will work on all chassis, if you can't find wheels with offset try to put shims (thick 4mm) between the wheel and the hex hub ( have a set of Kyosho shims, they are 0,5 mm thick)
yes u can give sorex tires a try they are good tires, ask at your club which one woud be the best for your track (ask for the inserts too) .

shims are the spacers? well if they are...dont' put to many spacers on, if you do the wheel wouldn't have so much room to stay on the wheel hub. then it results to screwed up rims

i depends. 24mm are thinner so they are better for handling and 26mm are thiker so they will have better acceleration. I have used both and i perfer the 24mm by far but i guess its what ur track it like.
