I saw some 2.0″ imex disc wheels on ebay a while ago. the plain disc design was far from yoke Hotlaps aero wheels. but the structure itself looked pretty much same to me. it was 3 years ago
then a close friend found me some imex wheels recently. so, i could build more 834B wheels from Hotlaps 2WD front wheels plus imex wheels today. it worked!
thank you so much Aaron!
and the leftovers..
center discs from imex and 2.2″ 2WD front outer rims from Hotlaps
and few more pics from my old posts
will add more pics later
Yokomo Hot Laps made nice wheels for 834B and RC10. and, there were a few more parts from them include the oneway wheel hubs. the header says it was made of magnesium which is lighter than aluminum
the reason I got the hubs is the shape. the offset is identical to the originals. but Hot Laps hubs allow to adjust the offset by switching with the each side, right to left and left to right
the offset is quite right with modern 2.2″ wheels
already posted this in Korean(한글) on my another blog which I’m building over the last couple of days. and I’m doing this again. I noticed I forgot to put Custom Works wheels in this picture. but I still like this yellow, white, and pinky picture
the original 1.75″ wheels are yellow and very cool. but they don’t showed up anymore on ebay. 870C wheels are 2.0″ and can be replaced with.
and, there are few ebay sellers and online hobby shops sell 2.0″ tires

Tamiya #53059 Wide Stud Spike Tires
Tamiya wide stud tires work with 870C front and rear wheels both. so it’s not a problem if you only have the front or rear
870C wheels are deep dish. and the offset is identical to the original yellow wheels

Front wide ZC-801
Yokomo TR-8 was stock rear tires for 870C

834B still runs great with 2.2″ wheels and modern tires. rc10talk forum member kustomizerz made this video
and his chassis are here
there were a few kind of 2.15″ wheels. ZC-821 front, ZC-822 9mm deep dish front, ZC-825 deep dish rear, ZC-827 with (almost) flat dish
ebay is the best source for the wheels. 2.15″ ROAR wheels work with modern tires as well.
2.2″ 30 series wheels ZC-83x
maybe you can find ZC-837 or ZC-837W 30 series wheels. but they don’t have negative offset. you need to modify the rear wheel hubs if you want to use ZC-827 or ZC-837 wheels

it’s perfect for 834B and 870C but really hard to find

#1 front wheel hubs
there are 2 reasons to write on the wheel hubs. the 1st one is they are hard to find. and the other one is for the case you want to run your Wonder Doggie with modern tires. we still have the problem with getting 2.2″ wheels. but let’s get started this topic with ignoring the wheel issue
she, the shop owner still has tons of 834B parts. but I didn’t see the left side of the front oneway wheel hubs for years
so, I bought 2 right ones. and tried to pull the oneway bearing out. then put it back. it was quite easy to do with a hammer and 2 thick books. I got a complete pair now
The original yellow and 870C wheels had deep offset. but later 2.2″ wheels don’t. I tried to exchanged the right and left wheel hubs. and it worked. but wanted better solution to hold the wheels securely
the wheel hubs for RC10 and kyosho seemed to be worked.
but, I didn’t try kyosho’s.
got this after the step bit job with RC10 wheel hub. I didn’t cut the back end. and didn’t have to. it has gone
it fits like it was made for this
#2 rear wheel hubs
it’s more simple than the front. the hub was from 870C front
now my 834B got right thread and look
and you can see the steering from later Yokomo cars. they are basically same. but work better and easier to find
