    Bought a 4x4 stampede vxl

    For my 7 year old son.

    He loves it on 2s.

    Threw a set of new alum wheels and tires on it.

    I think it looks better. It's actually hard to flip it over now!

    They are made by spi racing in Madison heights Michigan.

    They are SUPER light weight. Made from billet stock. Weight is within a couple oz of stock plastic. The tires are heavier obviously. But the whole package isn't bad

    They are the whole wheel. Not just "rims"

    Imex maxx dawgs I had laying around.

    I run spi wheels on as many of my rc's as I can.

    These are coming Monday, hot off the mill 2.2 for another project

    That shop is like 20mins from my house. He makes some nice wheels for sure. Ain't cheap, but then again look at the quality and workmanship.
    My previous sig conflicted with a forum policy.

    The wheels alone make it a beast! Nice.

    He needs a better web page if he has one. I dug and googled forever looking for a nice set of aluminum wheels a while back and the only result I ever see is RC4WD which doesn't offer any 2.8s and of course the Hong Kong crap on eBay that doesn't even give you measurements. Are they 17 or 12mm? When you say a couple ounce difference, you do mean the whole set I hope not a 2 ounce difference per wheel, right?

    I don't think they are that bad at all. Not for made in USA quality parts.

    Spiracingwheels.com if anybody tries. Don't see any measurements at all on the site. Not worried about the price but gotta know what your paying for.

    6mm if your using the stock style flanged nut to hold the wheel in place.

    12mm if your using say the hot racing 12 to 17mm adapters

    Or just order the 6mm like I do. Then drill them out after I decide what vehicle is getting them
