Default Disc type wheels for Slash 2wd?

Hello, I am looking for a flat faced disc type wheel for my 2wd Traxxas Slash 2wd oval set-up. I know DE racing makes some for the 4x4 but dont list any for the 2wd offset........ Anyone?
Im kind of a newbie again. Been out of the game for the last 15 years and my local shop has a 2wd stock slash class and im building two, one for my son and myself.

You'll have to run the 12mm hex on the front wheel axles to run the DE "disc" wheels. I have them on all four wheels of my ECX Torrent oval car, but, they'll work on the Slash.

The DE rear wheels would fit the front as is, but just with the incorrect offset. RPM makes a replacement front arm that would allow the usage of the rear wheels on the front with the correct offset, but that may violate the stock rules.

The best bet may be just cutting out circles from lexan, painting them and then gluing to the wheels. Of course, leaving a hole in the center to access the wheel nut.

Default Disc wheels

I got the de wheels for my pro mod slash. They are listed for 4wd to to the difference in front offset. You may not even notice, but I got the rpm offset compensating front a arms that corrects this for running 4wd drive wheels up front. If you get the a arms you will also need longer tie rods.
