Will stock rustler wheels and tires work for on 2wd brushless torment?
been outta the hobby for a long time. Have had this for about a year, put this vw body on and finally started bashing a lot and now I have fused my hex’s into one rear wheels and can’t find any stock replacements. Or recommendations that should work good would be greatly appreciated

I think they are pretty standard size but haven’t replaced mine yet.

I ordered some of these: 5mm Thick 12mm Aluminum Wheel Hex Nut with Pins Drive Hubs 102042 Upgrade Parts for 4WD RC Car Himoto https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08CZH1K76/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_7fbmFbB4ERS20

These aluminum hexes have locking screws to keep them on the axle so they don’t stay in the wheel and have the pins fall out when you take the wheels off. I will report back when I get them (shipping from China). I super glued one hex into the wheel because it started to strip so I will probably need wheels too.

Let me go see if the wheels from my Redcat Volcano fit....

Almost - weirdly the axle hole on the redcat wheels is just a tiny bit smaller. I could drill it out slightly and it would fit. Same 12mm hex. These grip well too, I may make this swap.

Shipping takes a while but Banggood has sets that will work.

As long as it’s 12mm hex hubs and close to the right size you should be fine. If you end up with larger or smaller circumference tires remember you are altering gear ratio and may need to change pinion size to compensate. If you go with a tire that has a 25% larger circumference you are effectively gearing up 25% so you should gear down appropriately so you don’t overheat your motor and ESC.

Thanks so much! There is a set of the rustler wheels and tires for sale here. Thought about that route for the vw body as front are smooth ribbed and The rear have tread. Going for Like a sand buggy look.

Would 2wd Slash wheels and hex's fit? Seems like a ton of options with little options for ECX replacement. At least where I live.

Yes they will.

before I used the proline streetfighters meant for the slash, they worked perfectly. 12mm hex and SCT offset.

Now I use axial metal hex’s on the rear of my 2wd, 12 to 17mm hub adapters and 17mm hex wheels, now I use belted hoons that come with the 17mm hex. You can almost make anything work. I also have a set of 20mm extensions that stick the wheels out further so I can use Wide monster truck tires.
