Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

Do 17mm hex 2.6" wheels exist? Looking to replace the stock wheels on my Mad force VE so I can run Clod tires and I haven't come across anything. I'd rather not run adapters and Clod wheels as they re not strong enough for 4-6S.

If anyone knows of anything that will work I'd appreciate it.

The ofna "monster pirate" used 17mm wheels, and it's possible to stretch clod tires over them (they are a little bigger than 2.6").

Found these on ebay, but it's only 2, but it gives you an idea of the offset used on them.

Looks like they are hard to find these days, but look all the way down on this page.... bottom left... those are the wheels I was thinking of, and there's a part # listed, so maybe you can hunt a set down.

Thanks Andy, I forgot about those. Looks like they're hard to find these days. Hopefully I can hunt down a set somewhere.

Would be great if Proline would just offer 14mm and 17mm in the brawlers, and make the backside a bit larger diameter to clear knickles on the big MT's like MAXX's and Savages...like these, but plastic and cheaper https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-TMaxx- ... SwACZZzcfJ :roll: :)

Either Proline or JConcepts, that would be nice. I did see those on Ebay and they look awesome, but dont really want to spend that kind of money on wheels as I dont run the Mad Force often enough to justify it.
