Default Setup Wheels

SO I am in the market for a set of setup wheels. Are they all the same? I went to the integy site and they have a few models with different prices and no description that would differentiate varying prices.

I am using them for 1/10th scale cars that use rubber tires. Are they alll the same diameter? Right now I am using sweep tires.

For the most part yes though they come in different diameters and sometimes don't necessarily match the tires you are running.

These do have a feature others do not:

they don't require wheel nuts to use. They are about 1mm bigger diameter than solaris tires.

Those are nice, I have a set. But take a look at the axles outside the hext on your car before you go with those. They work great on my TC6.1, but they don't work perfectly on the front end of my Mi4LP's with the narrow hexes, because there's a bit of non-threaded axle outside the hex face. I have to throw a wheel spacer on with the setup wheel to get it to seat well.
