    No, sand paws are a 2.2 tire that's a 2.2/3.0 rim. You need to get the slingshots if you want a sand tire to fit that rim.

    edit: sand paws will fit on these Rpm wheels for the slash http://www.rpmrcproducts.com/product...h/Revolver.htm

    Yes they will fit those, they are 2.2 rims and the epics do fit the slash which is important because not all 2.2 rims fit the slash right.

    the best rim i have found that is bead lock to run on the slash and is 2.2 only is these.. I run a 2s or 3s lipo with a 4600 kv motor and dont lose a bead
