Tires are one of my biggest rc expenses. For street duty I've been running some mid grade items off ebay.
If I end up with the XO, I imagine its going to be hard on tires.... so what do?
I could just keep replacing with OEM tires.... or look for aftermarket tires. Of course Traxxas had to make this thing a funny size, so the stock wheels are just a bit taller than standard 8th scale buggy tires.
I'm pretty sure I can still run the smaller wheels, since the ride height can be adjusted on the XO to compensate... though it might look funny.
Proline road rages in buggy size are the tallest road tires I've found that I think will work... but those are a premium tire, and I've scrubbed a set bald in short order with the ERBE.
We need a good value priced aftermarket option. Considering this is a low volume car, I'm not hopeful the aftermarket will rise to the occasion.
