Default Would these work?

I'm wondering if something like this would work on our Volcano's?

I do not have a volcano ok so I may be wrong but I'd say its unlikley hey. The volcano does not have 17mm wheel hexes does it? Also these are for the savage which is, if I am not mistaken, a much larger MT than the volcano.
Its just a thought hey.

You are correct that the Volcano's are not 17mm, they are 12mm hex but I want to change from this smaller size to a larger hex size.

We can get Jato rims, I was actually waiting on getting some for a few weeks, but I can see about hooking you up now with a good price, also I will check on what tires are available for the jato rims.

I had trouble with them snap a few time then I did some qc on them, a litttle fine sandind and make sure the pin heads are rolled properly and there cool. I'm one bearing away from having a better set up. If it works I'll let everyone know [&:]

CVD axles from Redcat/Himoto. They suck, I tried a set out and cvd joint snapped the first time out when I gassed it.
