The design allows to easily change the offset of the wheel to fit different applications by simply changing out the hex.

They also allow to replace a damaged wheel hex without needing to replace the glued tyres or even upgrading wheels to the separately sold 17mm wheel hexes for extreme use!. The wheels accomplish all of this and more by using Pro-Line’s unique 6×30 interlocking hex design that is secured to the wheel by six M3 screws that are spaced 30mm across. The Raid wheels feature a detailed 10-spoke design that recreates the latest in high performance full-size forged racing wheels with the strength and durability to match the bold look.
