    Yes sir they will. Any 1/10 on road sedan wheel n tire combos will fit. Get ready to do some suspension tuning w them, if not your going to traction roll quite a bit

    I'm thinking of getting a set.
    Do they need taping or do they not balloon on 3S?

    I was asking the same thing and someone suggested the belted version. Work great with 3s and don't balloon.

    They only come in the pro soft compound which I don't want, and they seem to be discontinued anyway

    Any help with taping them (or not) then?

    I'll be running 3S on stock motor. I'll tape them anyway to be on the safe side.
