    New to rc's bought a KB

    Hello i bought a KB car from my LHS and went and tried it at a local park on a smooth concrete basketball court the slicks worked great on it but i am going up to the mountains this coming week and more then likely there will be some snow so the slicks wont do the trick up there. are there any suggestions for off road/snow tires? To make sure the wheel size is 26mm and the stock KB wheels are 0mm offset would 0mm be better then 3mm for aftermarket rims?
    thanks

    Any 1/10 sedan/touring wheel will work, 3mm offset and 6mm will work, any more than that and your rub the body. As far as tires The tamiya (spelling? idk) block tires seem to be popular, or maybe Hpi rally tires. check out this thread

    Stick with 3~4mm offset. 6mm is likely going a problem if you run a reasonable camber (these are 5mm's at 2):
