The HPI Firestorm wheels have a 12mm hex. Any wheels with a 12mm hex will work. Axial makes some pretty cool looking wheels, as does Proline and HPI..

If you get a good pipe, obviously one thats better than what you have, you will notice an increase in performance gain.

A decent set of tires and a good pipe will give your Firestorm a bit of an edge :D
