    Tire & rim options with pictures

    Ok so this thread is more for the new guys like me who have had a little trouble finding tire and rim combos. I spent alot of time trying to figure out what tires and rims would go together and to be honest I never really got it. One thing I knew for sure is when I looked at users pics on here it seemed alot of people pretty much use alot of the same combos and I knew I wanted something a little different. With the help of a few good forum members (Revo1,chachi,Brushlessman) I was able to put together a few good tire and wheel combos that fit and that I didnt see on every car I looked at. Below you will find a list of what I have along with part numbers and names incase you would like to order the same set up. As well as a few pics. Hope you enjoy and that this may help someone who like me had a hard time choosing tires and rims. All the prices and part numbers listed are from Towerhobbies.com and prices were what I I paid at the time I ordered them.

    1. Rulux 1/8 wheels 1/2 offset ups Part number #LXTTD0 $19.59 set of four.These rims come in a set of four. They come white and you dye them black. They are fitted with Jconcepts Double Dee tires part #lxufb4 $47.98 forset of four.

    2.Maximizer beadlocks zero offset 12 spoke part #LXNWP7 $55.98 for set of four. Fitted with HPI GT2 Tires 160x86mm Savage part# LXMCZ5 $53.98 for set of four.

    3.RPM Revolver Monster Truck Wheel 17mm Chrome part#LXVCA4 $30.18 for set of four. Fitted with IMEX Swamp Dawg Tire Medium w/Molded Foam part#LXWFW0 $42.98 for set of four.

    4.RPM Revolver 3.2" Monster Truck Wheel 17mm Black part#LXVCA3 fitted with Proline Mt badland tires. part#lxnks3 $39.98 for a set of four.

    Thanks man! Yup, I painted it myself, rattle can style! I do, or did, use it pretty hard. It looks nothing like this now, I can tell you that. I take pride in painting a body, making it look really good, then thrashing it! I keep them all after they are used up like a badge of honor. They hang on my wall in my garage as evidence that there are no shelf queens here!

    Yes, yes I did. It has been seen on here for a long time. That is what I did while waiting for my ERBE, is get a couple of bodies painted up and ready for the summer bash season. Who wants to be painting a body when you can be out bashing! I sold my regular E-Revo in anticipation of the ERBE, so I had time on my hands!

    The traction is ridiclous as well. These are probably the best tires for on and off road drivers.

    Looks like it might be the new ProLine Bug body, which has two lengths...long and short versions. Check it here for the long one:

    You just have to cut out the motor section on the back of the body if you want to run it with the wing.

    Those big tires and rims look pretty cool man. I been looking at the rock crawling. Looks like it could be fun. They just had a big rock crawling thing here where I live. Down by the beach they have insane amount of rocks perfect for crawling. I been looking at the summit. I think that might be my next rc truck. A little rock crawling,a little through the mud.

    Not sure who you are talking to. Sincve this is a revo forum I would suggest asking that question in the slayer forum. You might get a few responses here but like I said its a revo forum.

    unusual setup IMO, all traxxas though. T-Maxx 3.3 (6.3") Tires and Revo 3.3 Wheels 17mm. I like this setup and has worked pretty well, but i may have to buy those Imex Swamp Dogs up top for some crawling! those are sick!

    I've got a similar setup to MMstar,, I've been running these tires on my E-maxx for almost a year and they've held up real well and get pretty good traction.

    T-Maxx 3.3s on Huricanes


    And here's one with the moab (not the XLs) On the Cheyenne beadlocks (just got them mounted have yet to see how they work):

    ^^^Aren't those for the 5b? I've loved the looks of those Desperado wheels, but figured they were WAY too big to run on an ERBE.

    For everyone running badlands:
    How good are these tires? I have seen a ton of people running them. Are they any good for your typical track? My dilemma has to do with me wanting a new set of tires that are good on the track, but better than the stockers on loamy, sandy, bashing-like terrain. The stockers are decent, but I want a wider stance as well.. Is there a decent all-around tire for this or am I looking at two different sets?

    I have the mt badlands and they are great. Dont wear fast and they are good in the loose dirt as well as gravel type dirt and grass. Quite a few people use them and really like them. there not meant for pavement or street though.

    Chachi, yes, those are the 5B tires, but since BigART listed them I went ahead and helped him out...

    Yes, the Badlands really are an excellent tire, and would work pretty well in your loamy dirt that is on your track, as long as it is about ź" deep or so.

    Hmm.. what about the hard-packed stuff? Can they hold there own? Obviously bow-ties are better for those situations, but I just can't justify spending $70+ on a set of tires that I will only run a few times a month.

    So are all the rims you posted 17mm? Lets say a rim isnt 17mm, do they have adapters so you can use any rim?

    Badlands don't work very well on hard-packed dirt...Pro-Line originally designed them for use over in Europe, since it rains a lot over there and the tracks always get real muddy, so they were actually made for the mud. But, bashers liked them so much, they started selling them to the public. Anyway, they are best in grass, gravel, deep loose dirt, sand, etc....on hard-packed surfaces they just won't bite very well, and you will be very disappointed in them.

    Bow-Ties are excellent tires, but even they aren't designed for really hard-packed surfaces, they are designed for firm surfaces that have a layer of loose dirt on top. But, they do work well for general bashing, and go great everywhere except medium to long grass. They actually work great on concrete or asphalt, they just wear fast on it.

    Then there are Crime Fighters...they are designed for firm to hard-packed surfaces that have a thin layer of dirt or a heavy layer of dust on top. They work well in those track conditions, but don't work well for general bashing, unless you are bashing on surfaces similar to the track conditions I described. They do work pretty well on concrete and asphalt, but again, they wear really fast.

    And finally, Holeshots...they are designed for hard-packed to blue-grooved surfaces, with either no dirt at all or a very thin layer of light dust, and they do not work at all for any type of bashing, unless you are bashing on a hard-packed or blue-grooved track. They also work decently on concrete and asphalt, but they will be bald after about 30 minutes of bashing.

    All of the above mentioned tires are Pro-Line, but there are many more out there, such as AKA (they make some excellent tires), HPI, and many more.
