Just finished these up last night...it's funny now with this mod I look for wheels that need to be 12mm modded instead of buying ready to roll. Quite fun actually!

Also, any of JConcepts "Tense" wheels are a direct bolt up to SLW Hubs
Bolt pattern is exactly the same..
I was messing around with the flashy decor hubs the other day on the Axial 1.9's. Too much for this wheel/tire combo though.

With 15mm they were 1 1/8 so with 10mm should be pretty close to 1in. Post up when you get them done

I'm having no luck finding spacers that I can screw into to make some custom wheels out of my stock losi ones. Were do I find different width spacers to order that are threaded, or can be tapped?
