Default Tamiya DF-03RA, Wheels And Tires

I'm new here and I have a question.

I'm near completion on a DF-03RA Lancer X build. It's my first kit build.

I plan on using the stock rims and tires for now, but what tires and rims are available for this kit, and which would be recommended as an upgrade?

You might feel a little sick ....

There is a DF03RA thread and a Scale Rally thread on the Electric Off-Road side.

Technically pretty much anything with a 12mm hex hub will fit and it depends on what you are doing on what will be the best.

Ok, your going to want a couple sets of tires seeing you can run a DF03ra anywhere. Stock rims are 0mm offset. You can run 3 or 6mm offsets if you want to run 200mm Rally bodies. I have 3 sets (0mm), I run all HPI TE37 wheels, I have the stock Rally blocks, HPI X-Pattern Tarmac Tires, and HPI Rally Tire in M Compound. The Rally Tires hooks up well in the loose stuff, as well as snow and mud, but will disappear before your eyes on anything with high, abrasive grip. The other tire that is semi decent in snow and mud is HPI Rally Spikes. They wear about the same as the Rally Tires. The X-Pattern is great for parking lots, and for some drifting fun, lightly sanded asphalt. The Stock Tamiya Rally Blocks are ok. Nothing special. The next tires on my list are HPI Pirelli Rallys. They have kinda a 'L7' looking tread to them. They hook up on just about anything and they wear like a lead pipe. Happy Rally-ing!
