    Hello, I'm new to on road RCs and I'm planning on using an associated T4 chassis but one thing that has me a bit stumped is wheel offset. Also will any 1/10 onroad wheel fit on the nut/hex/whatever its called

    The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types (measured in millimeters).*

    Zero Offset

    The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

    Positive

    The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

    Negative

    The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.

    if your wheel needs a hex it must match the hex used on the axel .
    most 1/10 use 12mm hex
