I really want to switch to 17mm hex for my Stampede 4x4. I keep blowing out rims and I am done with it. For anyone who has switched to 17mm what rims are you running, and what offset? I have heard of others stretching tires to fit the larger rims to keep the diameter the same, I am interested, just not sure what I need.

I am running MIP's, 3s Lipo, a tight slipper clutch and Trenchers. I am geared down so this thing has tons of low end grunt and spins the aluminum hexes in the rims with the nuts tight and locktighted.

Yeah, I could loosen the slipper but that isn't as much fun and I would be constantly replacing clutches. Better then rims I guess....
