Based on price alone, I would expect the Integy X2 tires to be similar to the HPI D-Compound X-Patterns. One of the main differences I can see is the inserts. If you go to the Integy web site and look at the picture of the "imposter x-patterns" the insert looks to be a thinner and harder insert like TC tires. Not the cheap puffy foam inserts that HPI uses. At my local tracks, tires may be randomly squeezed to see if the correct inserts are used.

I just got some in the mail. They feel exactly like pro compound non belted tires. The insert is a cheap neoprene foam-not very good. I'm sure you could get the regular X pattern inserts and it would be fine.

Any feed back on how they handle compare to the hpi x pattern? Same as 4490 / 4495?

kinda of a dumb question but I would rather check before I order...
I have a 190mm body with 0 offset wheels... I'm going to a 200mm body... what offset wheels should I get ?

Thank you in advance

I like 3mm in the front and 6mm in the back, but that is really just preference. Its one of those things that you will know better after trial and error.

Remember that just because it says its 190 doesnt really mean that it is. Some are 188mm and others are wider than 190.
