Default Hobbytech rims

Hobbytech seems to have this weird size rims. Their rims are 25.5mm. What kinda tire will fit on that??? I have only seen 24mm, 26mm tires. Never saw a 25.5mm tires.

Is anyone using Hobbytech rims??? What kinda tire are you using for your hobbytech rims??

Even though the wheels are 25.5 mm the 26mm tires will fit fine.
I have been using Ofna wheels,you can buy an 8 pack for $8.00 the wheels are made of nylon not plastic and they are very strong. they also measure 25.5 mm but seem to be fine.

When I first got my Impulse, I test fitted the V33 tires (26mm) on the HobbyTech Pinzetti's, and they fit fine. I also tried mounting 24mm tires on them and thery do nt fit very well. .5mm is not a big deal, but 1.5mm is.

The only problem I feel there is with that is that most competition tires are 24mm.

I've opted for the OFNA 24mm dish rims.

I like how Hobby Tech removed the chrome on the groove where you glue the tire.

Hobby-tech's rim are very nice and pretty and not costly at all. However why can't they just get with the program and make their rim 24mm???
