    Gorgeous!
    I have a set of those and a pair of Cheyenne rims on the way home!
    Should arrive next week!
    Too bad I live in Sweden, takes a while to get it from towerhobbies if you want to pay resonable shipping price!
    The "fast" shipping (normal) was $110 for 8 rims and a set of MOAB!
    The slow 7-14 days was less then half!

    I don't know why shipping is outrageous from the hobby companies.

    RC4WD wanted $60 to ship to Calgary, the most 'reasonable' was Stormer @$35 for 'priority'. I like Traximus Prime's idea of drop shipping in the US and driving accross the border to pick up. It is good the cdn dollar is high enough to make online ordering affordable to us Canuckens.

    I'm runnin rock crushers on cheyenne's there 23mm hex so you will need adapters if you weren't aware of that.But on the plus side the beadlock screws are bigger than the axials and the heads are recessed so they dont't get as chewed up.Although the axials look to me by comparing side to side my buddies moab xl's on axial rocksters to my moab xl's on cheyenne's axials are a little narrower.Moab's are a good choice for all around performance

    Looks like he has the Moab tires on those wheels. The wheels are 40 series. There is only one size 40 series Moab tire(They dont make a narrow and a wide). I have a set of them on my aluminum spinners


    Then I have a set of these for serious bite.

    Scotthw, Thats interesting. First time I've seen those (narrow), and like you say Proline doesn't show them. Maybe you should contact Proline and find out if they are old and discontinued or if they are brand new out and just havent been updated on their site yet. Anyhow, SmokeGR's still look like the wide ones.

    Moabs used to come in two sizes - narrow(taller) and standard 40 series, but Proline seems to be downgradeing its 40 series supplies or at least allowing them to become stagnant. But I still say moabs dont grip enough for rock/hill crawling applications, unless the foams are softened/altered.

    Have to agree with you on the lack of grip. Personally I like my RC4WD MudSlingers 100 times over. But thats just my opinion.

    These are killer, the rims and the tires. Is this something I can buy as a set or would it be a separate purchase?

    I just got my Mudslingers ($38) and Axial Narrow beadlocks ($23) from Stormer and the shipping was $35 to Calgary.

    They were the ONLY people who had the rims and tires together. All the other places had one or the other. RC4WD wanted $60 for shipping. I almost bought a set of Cyclones until I got to the shipping page...

    Mounting the axial beadlocks SUCK GREATLY (96 screws times 10 turns each equals finger blisters), and the rubber smell from the tires is obnoxious. But... it is worth it. Crawling performance is much better and the tires do not fold on a side hill. Loose dirt goes flying too. Overall a great upgrade from stock.

    They are also the 'smallest' of the 40 series which was a big plus to me as I did not want to get too high.

    I am going to post some pics of my E-Remmit crawler soon as I get its guts back in..

    Ya, I was a little PO'd at first with the shipping, but then saw that it cost them $31.55 to actually ship.

    You will not regret buying them..

    At least you know they are made out of actual rubber instead of a rubberized vinyl like some tires. Your blisters will heal and become a past memory from mounting them. Besides, As they say "No pain No gain" LOL . Your gonna love those tires. I know I do mine. They are great for more than just mud. That gnarly tread they have gets a good grip on everything. Enjoy.

    For general bashing + 6S Brushless power and some crawling, what tires would you guys recommend?

    Mud Slingers? Roxlox? Crushers?

    I despise gluing tires, so I was going to get a set of beadlocks. Probably the Cyclones for the Summit eventually, but Axial Narrows for right away.

    The stocks are good on some things cause they are so soft, but they tear easy. The 'slingers have a soft tread but stiffer casing. They are a much better overall tire for crawling, especially on a side hill. Not so good for smooth rock, but then again, what would be?

    I am doing some more crawling this weekend and will let you know more.
    They are definately an improvement and you will not be disappointed.

    'slingers all the way! Great hook up on soft stuff too. I looked at them all and found that the other tires would be too tall for what I wanted. You will love and hate the Axials. Super solid, but like I said before, hurts to install..

    Will the slingers hold up to 6S brushless? How will they handle 50+mph? Seems like they'd wear out like crazy for anything but crawling.

    I don't mind the nearly 100 screws. I cut an old hex wrench down and use a cordless drill with the clutch open. I just need to snug them down by hand.

    I think you might have the lugs flying at you at 50MPH. Keep them for crawling and use Revo tires for speed? At $80 a set (+ship) I use the 'slingers for crawling and stock for bashing.

    Stock tires will NOT hold up to 50mph I wouldn't think. I was going to use the stock tires for crawling, but I wanted a set of bashing/speed tires. Maybe the MOAB's are the best...

    I like the Cyclones, but not the price. Maybe I'll CNC my own beadlocks...
