Monsoon wheels
 
I cracked a front rim on my Monsoon. I like the stock tires and the gearing. I would like to find a aftermarket rim that would fit the factory tires. Has anybody found a suitable replacement rim. I'm not against running monster truck rims and tires to change it up a bit, but I would still like to be able to run the stock tires now and then.

what are the measurments of the stock rim?
I dont believe its an odd size...so most any 1/8 truggy wheel "should" work. Just make certain of the offset.

Trying to find a tape measure in this house is like finding a pen that isn't out of ink. I'm not sure of the size but the width is definately wider than a standard buggy rim. I found some by Ofna and Inetgy that are called super wide "or something like that", looks like they resemble the stock rims. Look at the pic, they are Super Wide. I love them. I do want to play around with some huge monster truck tires, this thing breaks the tires loose on the road, they just spin in the grass so I don't think going a little taller will be an issue. But I like the way it handles with the stockers on there, just want to get away from the fragile Redcat rims.

the width does look close to MT's

the hex is 17mm tho, right?

yes, 17mm.  Yeah they're like M/T rims with buggy tires aren't they.

It's hard to tell exactly with tires mounted on them but the rims are approximately 3.5 inches tall by 2 3/4 inches wide

the benefit of keeping the dish wheels is they are alot stronger than a rim with cutouts on it!

Not only this but they also keep a lot of dirt out of the bearings

Check out AKA racing and their line of 8th scale pre-mounts.  I run these on my truggy (RC8TE) and i love them.  I've also had several other customers with the Monsoon and the Avalanche to try other wheels.  I have found that the 1/2 offset works best with proline wheels.  I have had the standard ones hit on the spokes.

They are slightly taller than stock, but the footprint is narrower.
