White dish modern wheels for LXT?

Post by Lonestar » Tue Apr 18, 2017 9:00 am

Hi guys

gotta find white rear rims for my Slo-Hobby car ( ) , as time has come to ditch the old tires mounted on the old yellow ones... might as well buy something that looks about right ;)

What are modern, readily available, white dished rims that fit on the good ole LXT, please?

Thank you :)

I read your post yesterday, but I figured someone would have a better answer than I... :roll:
Probably not the answer you are looking for, but XXXT wheels should fit the rear, but not the front. HPI made (still makes?) a universal 5 spoke wheel that will fit all around, however, will make your width much wider. That's as modern as I go. :lol:

10T fronts work (or are close enough!)

Thanks guys :)

yes, I believe the T2 wheels will fit. certainly the right axle and pin size. And I think they all pretty much have the same offset.....

Your kid is smart :) Trucks are awesome to watch!

I wouldn't recommend a LXT though... bit too much work to keep running compared to a T4, for instance. I have a truckload of parts, which is good as there's a few things which are somwehate fragile in the end on the car and hard to source in 2017.

Rims: No idea... never came to order them.... will do sometime this summer I guess. My son decided he likes the 4wd SC better to do backyard bashing with Dad... and i like the challenge of bald-tires car, makes the driving more interesting ;)

So i made some experimentations with T4.1 rims.
In the Front, no problem it fits very well (exactly the same as the Losi rims) but most of you already know that :wink:
In the rear it fits well but there is an offset of -4.5 mm compared to the losi wheels. This makes the rear about 1cm wider than with the stock parts in the end!!
My two cents

1cm, no one will notice or care is my guess. Go with it.

I am pretty sure I have a box full of A&L direct fit LXT wheels floating around here somewhere. I'll put up some pics when I find them

Or just use the Team Losi A-1022 XXT/NXT axles up front and then use XXT / XXXT wheels. Pro-line xxt and xxxt wheels also work well after the axle swap.

If you mean these, they are still cheap on Ebay. No connection to this guy but have bought these from him in past and as represented.

Naw those are the buggy wheels to make it truck width with lots of offset. The ones I'm talking about are the LXT and 10T (3/16) offset. These also do not need a special nut. I found the box, there are about 20 pairs left. I have fronts also but having a hard time finding them to get a count.
