Can I use tamiya wheels and tyres/tires on this?

I haven't bought the files so I really have no idea if the wheels have a hex shaped hole and the size of the wheels. If it's the same size as tamiya 1/10 touring car ones then I swop tyres as I wish.

Hi!

I will investigate this. Do you have dimensions of 1/10 wheels? I can make adaptations if needed. I think easiest is to adapt the rims to work with commercial 1/10 tyres, but maybe it would be possible to adapt for commercial rims as well.

there are 2 types.
generally it's 24mm wide by 52mm or 26 by 52mm

Hi, thanks for the dimensions!

I opened the CAD now and measured. (easier than measuring on the real car. :D ) and these are the dimensions:

Front rim:
Diameter: 52mm
Width: 28,5mm
Tyre outer diameter: 65mm

Rear rim:
Diameter: 52mm
Width: 35,5mm
Tyre outer diameter: 69,3mmc

The holes in the rims are 4mm. There is no space for hex nuts or anything else, but there is a diagonal cutout on the inside of the rear rim to act as a rotation blocker. If you want, I can publish the rear outer shaft parts as STEP and also the rims so you can modify if you want.
