View Full Version : Tires that fit slash
08-31-2008, 09:28 PM
Just wondering what tires will fit that will not stick out from under the body. Like to keep it stock looking. If you know the name or have a link. Seems to be alot of talk about wheels and tires. People are saying the compound in the stock tires where out quick.
Was wondering about these with the 2.2 wheels

Well if you dont want them to stick out from under the body, dont buy those. I actually bought a set of four and just run them on the back. Truck seems to handle better with the narrow tires up front and they dont stick out and rub.

Scroll down to Redbullbasher's pics - he's got the geolanders, although Im not sure if they are on narrow rims. I can't tell if, or exactly how far they stick out. They look pretty good though imo!

I stopped by Hobbytown on my home to look for some tires for my slash. I wanted tires primarily to run on pavement because I wanted to save the stock tires for racing. What I found was the Jato 3.3 rear tires that fit great and doesn't hit the body. Here's some pics:
Here's a link to the tires.

I do like those for the street. I want to get some street tires also, and use them on street, and save the others for the dirt.
You just get the rear tires and use all around then?
No problem mounting? Just use same locknuts that came with slash?
What shock setup you using with those?
Thanks for any info.

Yes, get only the rears for all the way around. Use the same nuts no problems mounting at all. As for shock setup, I just got my Slash yesterday so I need to tune the suspension some. I can already tell the front oil needs to be a little heavier. Maybe move the front shock out on the arm and add a spacer in the front spring.

Something I noticed this morning from another thread:
The rear rims do have a different offset than the front rims. It appears to be a difference of 2.5mm. Putting the rear Jato wheels on the front would technically cause the width of the front to be approx 5mm wider than the rear. If you want to keep the front and rear consistent then I would get another set of rear wheel hubs to put on the front.
Since these tires and wheels are mainly for play I'm not going to worry about it too much. The front being a total of 5mm wider probably helps with stability anyway for those high speed turns, but on the other hand may swing your rear around too quick.
Just thought I'd throw this out there for those that are questioning offsets.

I found that if you run Slash tires on a VXL setup long enough, you get drifter tires!

Yeah that power takes it's toll on the tire wear but it sure is fun.....
