I'm coming from the 1/10th onroad class, and all these wheels are confusing me!
14mm, 17mm, 19mm, 21mm, hexes, splined hexes... And then tire sizes! 2.2", 3.8" 4.0"..?
I've read the Summit F.A.Q. which is hands down the most valuable resource I've had in getting to know my Summit so far! Thanks for that guys. It tells me that the stock tires are hard to beat for rock crawling. Really? I would have though that Axial/ProLine brand would be better (used on dedicated rock climbers).
I also glanced at this thread: http://www.traxxas.com/forums/showth...-with-pictures
My goal is to get 3 sets (of 4) wheels for different purposes.
Set 1: Offroad bashing allround
Pro-Line Badlands MT, 91mm (3.6") inner diameter, 69mm (2.72") width
Where can I find fitting rims ?
Set 2: Crawling
Stay with the stock Canyon AT's ? Or go for narrow Axials ? Which (their site is a PAIN in the **) ?
And also, I've read that Aluminium rims are the best for rock crawling due to weight -> lower center of gravity, which manufacturer makes these?
Set 3: Paddles / sand
Pro-Line Maxx Paddle, 77mm (3.0") inner diameter, 84mm (3.3") width
Which rims will fit?
So basically, I have two questions:
1. Where / how can I find fitting rims. I prefer beadlocks, so I can re-use rims, and perform maintenance (clean / repair tires).
2. What are the best crawling tires.
