    Tires for the Jconcepts Rulux Rims?

    Hey guys was wondering what tires I should put on the Black jconcepts rulux rims? Something along the lines of offroad and onroad but mostly on road... Badlands? or summit tires? I already have buggy tires and the gpm tires... I want the rulux because it'll make the wheel base wider...

    There aren't any 2.2 MERV tires like the badlands the closest I can find are bandit tires

    I'm gonna put bandit road tires on traxxas rims and get j-concepts rims for offroad as well (whenever I decide to buy tires).

    I have proline road rage with those wheels, and they fit good.

    Well after doing some research I decided not to get the rulux rims but rather the HPI SS Monster. They are 2.2 wheels 2 inch width

    HPI SS Monster Rims




    For the tires I think i'm going for onroad/offroad so it'll be Proline Dirt Hawg II 2.2 or Proline Gladiators

    Proline Dirt Hawg II 2.2


    Proline Gladiators

    How can you tell what tires will work with bead-loc type rims?

    you have to check the width of the inner diameter of the tire and also the width of the tread if it's for example 1.5 inch or 2 inch width...

    The truck hawgs require you to gear down a lot.
    Buggy rear hawgs may or may not require you to gear down; if they do, it will be a little.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I am running the traxxas white dish rim, they look like most buggy rear rims. I mostly bash with some messing around on a track with loose dirt, I use the jconcepts rear buggy tires http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXUFB0
    I love them, on dirt they have grip for days, it is like it is glued to the ground.

    To be fair I have not tried too many others tires, the only other kind being the stock slash tires (it is a merv convert) and some jconcepts double dees. The double dees are great on carpet and smooth surfaces, but they wear fast on asphalt and concrete, they have poor traction in the dirt (loose dirt track).

    I really like the look of the proline badlands but the ones they do make (for truggys) seem too big of a diameter, they would over stress the driveline, I am not saying they will break it right away, I would just rather run lower rotating inertia to reduce breaking potential. I would love it if they made the badlands as a buggy rear, front or a 4wd buggy version that could be stretched on.

    Compare the size of those to the stock tires and the truck hawgs.
