Doubt that HH has any relationship with these Choons.

Yeah, I'm sure they don't. What I was contemplating is if the tires could be produced by a third party with no relationship to HH other than supplying a generic tire design branded for Arrma. But anyway, it sounds like there will be some differences when I get a chance to compare them side-by-side.

Someone should do a side by side comparison with a pair of Hoons (whites)
Put 2 Choons on the left side and 2 real Hoons on the right side. See which last longer and wear more.
Yeah need to compare both up front and personal. Measure them well etc. Usually there is a fine stamp or Mfr mark near the inner wheels hex.
Obviously the Arrma logo is not on the spoke fo the Choons.
Just that even some upgrade brand wheels have an "Arrma" mark on the inside of the wheels. I've seen them before. HH has the wheels produced separately from chassis production. I think there are many outsource houses for the Arrma parts. Easy to see how copies can get out there.

Wouldn't the difference in tire size make that a bad idea? I guess maybe they're similar enough? regardless I'd put all my money on choons lasting longer. From my experience that seems to be the case.

You'd probably just end up actuating the diff alot more. So I wouldn't run it super hard, otherwise you might find yourself overheating the diff. If they are comparable in grip, it should probably be fine, but as others have already said there I'd a size difference, and that would actuate the diff just driving normally.

Side-by-side the only difference I see is where the seam on the tire rubber is, the size looks to be the same or so small it's not perceptible by eye. I'm heading out of town and will measure them with a caliper when I get back.

Are the diameters really that different??? Choons vs the Hoons? Both are 42/100's.:unsure:
Making me want to try them out now.:LOL:

Side by side comparison has already been done earlier in the thread.

Idk, I don't have a pair personally to look at, just going off of what people reported earlier:
First of all they are bigger and wider.
About 102.5mm x 44.5mm.

I definitely think it's noticeable. If hoons are 100 I'd guess choons are 102 or 103 but I don't know for sure.

Second set finally arrived in the snail mail today. Haven't even ran the first set yet.

Like the first set, they are well glued and quality seems good.

I got my set today and I'm impressed, it's like they tried to improve on the Hoons. The rim is true, unlike a few oblong hoons I've had, and the hexes fit snugly.

I can back up that they're a little taller (102mm) and in the hand they feel like the white compound which is what I prefer. So I hope they have the same or better treadwear. I get more packs out of white hoons than silvers.

FYI, ordered Nov 8, delivered Nov 19.
11 days isn't bad at all.
Also fyi, I ordered nov 9 and arrived yesterday nov 29. 🤷‍♀️(my 9th- 12th set).

i got desperate while waiting and ordered GRP S7s. Definitely more sturdy side smacking curbs in my current weather (40s-50s F). i have never broken a GRP wheel.
