noob here too. Have been into RC for a long time 20 years or so. This is a great site. I have been wanting to build a 1/24 +/- scale truck for years, and never new where to start. This is a great place to find all sorts of info for just a build. The release of the new Losi micro crawler will make a great platform for just the build i have always wanted.
Thank you all for creating such a great site.

Trying to figure size of a 2.2 wheel and tire. What does the 2.2 refer to?
Inches, metric or what? What is the common outside dimension of a 2.2 tire and wheel in inches? How do you tell the width of the tire? What size is the inside diameter of the wheel in a 2.2 configuration? What type of a common adaptor would i need to fit wheely king axles?
Thanks - Ron

the size of a 2.2 wheel is 2.2 inches. its the outer diameter of the wheel. a 2.2 tire would have a 2.2 inch inner bead. as for hieght and width, those vary by tire.

how do you tell the width? uhm, you look at the specs from the manufacturer. every tire maker usually has the tires specs posted on thier website.

wheely kings use a standard 12mm hex mount, so any 12mm wheel will bolt on. Different wheel offsets will alter the overall track width of the truck, but again, you will need to check the manufacturers specs to see what the offset of the wheel you are interested in, is.

Whups! Lil' error in that 2.2 definituion Mate! The 2.2, 1.9, etc. is indeed the bead-seat diameter, but the outer diameter is larger: Cain't be both. Chris

OBO = Or Best Offer

CONUS refers to the continental United States. To state that delivery is CONUS is to say that a procurement delivery could be anywhere in the continental U.S.
