    There are not a ton of options unless you want to trim the body.

    For off road Kyosho mini inferno wheels and tires I think are bolt on no mods required. For on road you have a few more options.

    IF you do not mind trimming the body you can fit larger wheels and tires on there.. just look for 1/18 scale options. (Larger really helps the mini slash for general bashing.

    12mm hex, if you want to use the stock wheels you will have more trouble because of the offset on ID.

    Hey Adamadam do the wheels you talk about fit on the Slash VXL with no mods needed?

    There are quite a few options... any 1/10 touring rim fits perfect as long as they are 0 offset... and there are a few different 1/10 rally tire sets out there that are fantastic... I am currently running the HPI 4470 tires on mine...

    Heres an example or a couple different options...

    I am not seeing the HPI 4470 tires at AMain but I am sure that you can get them on eBay or somewhere... or basically look for ANY 1/10 rally 26mm tire set from HPI or Tamiya...

    Here is a selection of 1/10 touring wheels:
    http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.ph...&filter_mfr=16

    The HPI 4470 are 26mm tires so you will want 26mm wheels to go along with that...

    The picture I posted is actually a bit old... heres a couple new shots of the slash on the far right... first one is with Traxxas 4-Tec wheels (slicks)...

    Heres the two of mine together... dont let the angle fool you... the left one is slammed... its the same truck set up as the previous link... but this setup has the HPI Vintage 31mm tires and rims on it... its my play around inbetween racing my TC4...

    So it looks as if a 26mm rim and tire combo is stock. This is what we are looking for if we do not want to modify anything correct?

    What if we want to go larger? How large can we go in mm? What mods will be required?

    Also, what is needed if we want to use a wheel with an offset? What mods take care of that?

    Sorry for all the questions and jacking the thread but were all trying to learn here.

    No problem at all...

    the MM rating is the width not the height... these are all 1.9" tires and rims so no modification should be required... I have 31mm on my onroad slash which are the ones in the picture... they are 3mm offset meaning that the outside of the rim and tire are not flush... they have 3mm of depth... stock slash wheels are the same "type" as the larger slash where it has 2.2/3.0... I am not sure what the outside diameter but the inside is 1.9 I believe...

    I actually have some BIG drift tires and rims (HPI LP35 and HPI LP32) but I havent tried to put them on my slash yet... if I make it downstairs to the work shop again I will try them out (currently on a broken ankle) but they should work just fine as well...

    Thanks! Yeah my only mistake was not balancing them before I ran them... so they have some flat spots... its a insanely fun onroad setup... I just need adjustable links...
