Default offset on losi eight t 1.0

i bought some proline calibers vtr tyres and i could only get the zero offset rims, i know the eight t 1.0 has half inch offset, is there anything stopping me from using the zero offset wheels with it? thanks

Do they fit? I was pretty sure they wouldn't clear the A-arms or steering arms inside the wheel. But if they do I don't see anything wrong by using them. Except the fact you are narrowing your car by an inch which would hurt handling....but they'd work if they fit

I've run zero offset on mine just for giggles before. Just watch out for rubbing at full steering lock. You track width is a bit narrower so you sacrifice some stability in the corners. You could also get some offset hubs...

you maybe even do more offset then that. My jammin runs 1/2 offset and I have put on extended hubs and 0 offset wheels and if anything i felt like I had just a tiny smidge more steering
