yes, they are 12 mm hex, you would need to find off road tires that are that size though

theres some more, but them are the ones i liked of them.. and these black wheels are sweet lookin, but i dont think would look good on a buggy

closest ive found, but i think their too large, width is about right tho
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLPW6&P=7
actually i think they will fit just fine, just will have to stretch them a little, but should work...
what do the tire/wheel masters say, a yes or no on the tires?

the stock front is 32mm width and the wheels abover are 24mm
rear are 40mm and above 24mm

diameter is 86mm and 48mm for the ones above

wouldnt they be to thin and be wobbly, ecspecially on the rear, and also be to low?

it means that an amputee is a person missing body parts and that person is hanging on a tree.What game do you play with people on a tree mising body parts?!!!HANGMAN!!! so i would yell out letters when i see that person its funnier if you get it from the start.Its a joke from a comedian named demetri martin.
