Default Tire question for MRX4X

I have tires that are for a Picco Speed chassis. This is the older version of the Shephard Velox I think. Can anyone confirm if these tires can be used on a Mugen MRX4X? Are most modern 1/8 chassis set up with universal fitment rims? What about Kyosho rims, are they compatible with the Mugen chasssis? Any info would be appreciated.

The Mrx4x as well as most cars today are OS2 offfset, so if theyre not the OS2 offswet then it probably wont fit

I think the Speed used the same wheels as the Integra. If so, the offset was unique. They might work but check your track width as it will be different.

Default Integra?

I vaguely remember the Integra, but was it 1/10 or 1/8?

Default Tire question

I ran the older version of the PRPXR8 and had a stack of the Picco tires that would fit, but it did have a different offset.
The XR8 used a Serpent style wheel, and allthough the wheels would fit, it did throw off the offset.
Same thing with the MRX4X.
The wheels will fit, but different offset.

Thanks for the responses. So the last question I have, Picco tires on a MRX4X chassis, will I be wider or narrower than normal.

I had some Picco/Shepherd speed tires and I believe they were the same offset as the older Integra series. I might have another set I can dig up.
