This is the second of my Stealth Graphite RC10s and a much better example than my first, almost flawless with little evidence of running. It sports my new Lohas Split Star alloys and I hope you agree that they finish the model off very well.

Are these rims currently available? do you mean new, or new as in recently introduced---Sweet car!

To me, the rear ones are a bit too deep in proportion to the thickness of the side of the tire (aka: Because of it they look like too low profile tires for a buggy) - The wheels are an amazing addition to the car though, I love their light construction and feel that the wheels have

@ Scollins, these are brand new rims but only a run of 5 set were produced in this style according to Lohas and all are now sold, however they do have a similar split rim style called Hurricanes available on eBay as I type. Keep an eye on my showroom as I have a set of these now fitted to my Ultima Pro that I will be entering shortly. Check out RC10talk RC10 Buggy Forum for more info.



@ Origineelreclamebord , the wheels are designed to fit 2.2 comfortably 2.1 with effort and 2.0s at a stretch, I have fitted 2.0s as I like the low profile look and the tread patter is that of the original RC10CE.



Thank you both for your kind comments

WOW those wheels are sooo nice. I am not a big fan of buggies, but yours looks so good.

Very nice, I think the rear tires look perfect, they match the low profile of the fronts, I cant wait till i get my two sets of 5 spoke's, I think there where actually 15 sets made and 5 of a nickle plated type. Emerson has a thread on rc10talk talking about it, but they are still sold out I leaving one set of mine gold and getting one set done in red for my HT car

My mistake nvxwax you are correct, I have just reread the RC10talk thread and 15 is the number, still a pretty limited run though. I think these are the perfect rim for those who cannot or do not wish to spend Tecnacraft money.

Thank you for all the nice comments.



nvxwax this model is in great condition, none of the usual shock to spring wear, mint condition motor plate and guard, fantastic none whitened white parts and the chassis has no damage at all, it’s definitely up there for overall condition with some of my new builds.
