Tire Offset

Initial D, (and you other well versed Serpent masters)

Would any of you happen to know what the correct tire offset is for the 710?

Im about to order tires and do not want to be dissapointed by ordering the wrong ones...


Thanks in advance!

Im talking about the purple aluminum wheel hub, where the wheels attach onto it. I think your talking about the wheel nut that goes on the outside of the rim to secure it on the car? I forgot what its called but it also has a 1.5mm screw that holds it to the shaft.

Hi there Nitro... You can use any 'offset', the correct ones should be 0offset as this allows you a better chance of getting the car to 200mm else it will not be 200mm but wider and you will need to set it to 200mm

There is no right or wrong in offset terms. Its not black and white thing, just different. We still able to adjust it right.

Wheel nut is 4mm, wrench is 7mm.. what do you need that wheel hex hub wrench for? you should be able to tighten the wheel nut from outside, even with integy setup, unless you are using nylon nut. Get yokomo special made and design wheel nut for their setting wheel. Works great.

I heard a VERY disturbing thing a few days ago... the Hudy Ultimate setup system and S710 are not compatible... Is this true?

Zero offset is what you need. If you accidently buy offset tires, do not worry. You just need to re-adjust and correct the trackwidth by screwing in the pivot balls more deeply.

There's nothing disturbing about it. I have not needed to mod my Hudy Setup gauges. I just tilt and rotate the gauges accordingly till their holes align with the pivot balls so that I can access them with my 2.5 mm Hudy.
