Now that the proline brawlers are out. I don't see ppl buying stock clod wheels much. I love my brawlers! Get the +17.5mm offset ones.

The proline destroyers are a good choice. Love em! they are a softer compound which require foams, but those are included. I'd say anything but B&H tires would be good enough. For the price of stock clod tires you may as well get a nice after market tire like the destroyers.

Now everyone is trying to sell off their Clod tires and wheels to get the PL. Pricing has come down on wheels and tire combos because of it.

If you want amazing shocks. Go with proline pro specs or proline power strokes. The price is a bit of a shocker I know, but you won't find better shocks. You will need shock oil for either one.

Pro spec fronts.

Power stroke fronts.

Are you wanting to go brushless?

you could run rears its been a minute since I've owned a terminator. I run fronts for on my ripper and have ran fronts on Diablos. Go with fronts, if they are to short change the rod ends to longer ones. Easy as pie

I think they mount just like stock, so the axle nut is a 4mm thread size.
