most hpi with a 12 mm hex will fit, also traxxas jato rims will fit and rustler rims also, the rustler rims may need a little trimming on the inside since the rims are not offset enough

2 sets of rears, no fronts.

the jato is rear wheel drive so it takes different wheels in the front, the redcats are 4 wheel drive so you need 4 rears

ok i cant find a tire that will fit on those rims.

SPECS: Inner bead diameter: 3" (76mm)
Width: 2" (51mm)

all the tires that ive seen are too big or small in one or both of those messurments. and ive gotten tired of looking at tires( i know, bad joke). so if anyone sees tires of that size, post it here. thanks

Those rims won't work. They are too wide, I tried a set of those style rims. Anything that says T-maxx or Savage won't fit, they're too wide. 2.8 inchs those are the rims that will fit perfect on the volcano with no modification.

Yes, they are 2.8 inch rims, man. That's all that is needed to know for 1/10th scale rims, You need 2.8 inch rims and 2.8 inch tires. Those are the specs man.

They do man. They post the stockers, but the stockers for the Volcano SV AREN'T AVAILABLE. You have to either buy the yellow or green ones with the STX tires or go some where else and buy 2.8 RIMS and 2.8 TIRES any 2.8 rims or 2.8 tires will work.

well if you want the stock volcano SV rims then you have to wait about 2 to 3 months, there is no where to buy them.

Hey you know what, I was just thinking you might be able to get them from Export pro, but the shipping is outragous.
