    Tire Taping Quesution?

    Hi

    I'm after getting a set of 30 Series wheels and tires, do I need to tape them?? Will be running 2S and 3S.

    This is my first set of tires for the Slash, usually get tires for the EMBE & ERBE and have to tape them but not sure about the Slash, I'm thinking not but decided to ask.

    DEFINITELY! Taping doesn't hurt at all and it gives you the benefit of not having huge ballooning tires, lol. Do it for sure!

    A little over 1 is fine, but I go 2. I feel like it doesn't hurt to have more tape, haha.

    I have read to use gorilla tape instead of duct tape.... BAD IDEA imo. The gorilla tape is stronger with no question but it doesn't curve around too well and it is much heavier if you do 2 laps. It makes little lumps on the edge and it has made my tires a little out of balance. From now on I'm sticking with 2 laps of normal duct tape, it stays flat on the rubber as you tape and comes out better.
