Default Wide wheels for my wraith

I' ve bought a wraith a month ago, It is a rtr version, but I've started to equip it a lil bit.

I would like on it wheels wider, but in 2.2 I've found nothing, in 3.2, there is a problem, wheels are 14 or 17mm hex, so, I can't put them on my wraith.

I think 2.8 wheels should be a good choice, does anybody test a wraith with wide wheels?

axial 8holes work great for making it wider.

You could put 17mm hex head adapters on and run bigger wheels that way if you wanted.

These are the only ones that popped up with a Google search. ST Racing 14 mm Clamp Wheel Hex Adapter Blue (SPTST3654-14B) | RC Planet at first I thought just use 14mm hexes from a T-Maxx untill I read this 12mm to 14mm hex wheel adapter DrHonda? Would take some wok since pin and axle are different sizes.

You can always move the cursor to an underlined set of words and click it. The website pops up.
