Default What buggy wheels fit AKA tyres perfectly ?

I am in a bit of a situation, i have some aka tyres to glue up, but cant get ahold of any aka rims, i can get ahold of some losi and proline rims, does anyone know what measurements the losi and proline rims are and which ones are closer in size to aka rims.

Thanks

proline or HB or Odonnell wheels work perfect.

Pro-Line V2 or the Losi wheels will work just fine. They're both comparable in size to AKA wheels.

I've mounted them on Prolines, Losi's, Associated's and Mugen's new wheels with good results.

Proline is proly the closest match, and associated, maybe even the hot bodies but the hot bodies and AKA rims are very flimsy, last weekend I cracked the rim in half on the inside wall, its useless to me. I only use proline rims I've never broken one, I have about 15 aka wheels with cracks from minor to decent size.

AND prolines are cheaper too!
