Default Narrow Positive offset rims

With this rim
http://www.tcscrawlers.com/VF-Assass...t-p-16733.html
Or this rim
http://rc4wdstore.com/product_info.p...roducts_id=262
I should have the same positve back spacing. Seeing as how they are both made to reduce the track width of a clod/ wheely king axle.
Would I be correct, or am I totally off base.

They may have the same offset but the VF Assassins are narrower giving you a narrower track width than the RC4WDs.

the rc4wds you posted look to have nearly a 0 offset, (ie right in the middle of the wheels centerline)

Thank you both. I need some informed opinions. To make sure I was not jumping to conclusions.

As I posted before...I have the VF Stalkers and there is a 1/4" from the front of the wheel to the face of the hex. Your not going to get any narrower than that...

How narrow of a Track width do you need? I've made a few custom sets that will give you a narrow track width then any of those. But they are not beadlocks. You would have to Glue your tires.

I did the same thing with some rustler wheels:

You can narrow them as much as you want/need from the backside and they are about $8 for 2

What About The New Pro-line Narrow 2.2 Crawler Wheels?
What Kinda Offset Do They Have?
