I can't ... because I do not know well enough and in fact I am looking to get wheels for mine and wondered which one's do fit?

I do know our hex is 12mm, right? And then they are 2.2" wide? What is the diameter?

the 12mm hex is correct, i really dont know the specifics of the stock tires. I use traxxas rustler rear rims, 4 of them. you may have to do a little trimming on the rims to make them fit, i have the stx and someone got some rims that were no good on the sv. The hpi 5 spoke seem to fit, these ones: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...p?&I=LXM876&P=

no, the volcano rims are taller more like a jato rim (2.8 but dont hold me to that) i dont think you can get tires except for the redcat replacement for the stock volcano rims

Ya you can put T-maxx tires on them BUTTTT the T-maxx tires rub on everything when you turn, lol. Jato tires should fit. I've got a set of Jato Tires I was thinking about putting on my Volcano, but I haven't done it. Eyeballing it looks like it might fit fine.

jato tires do fit but with the 2.8 rim there is not much of a choice of tires.

Check it out, We will be carrying most of these tires and a about 25% of everything else listed on the site in a month or so. The prices are high on the Imex site because they prefer people to buy from there dealers, but check it out anyway way cool tires and rims.
