    2.2 wheels on a rustler

    Just got a rustler vxl to take to the beach while I am on vacation. I told the guy I needed sand paddles and he sold me the pro-line sling shot 2.2 that are pre-mounted on rims already. From what I have gathered these will need an adapter to fit. Should I get an adapter or just get a 2.8 sand paddles?

    2.2" is actually the standard rim size for racing stadium trucks. As long as they have 12mm hex mounts the 2.2s should mount up just fine without any adapters.

    Be aware that the stock 2.8" based tires are lower in profile than many 2.2" based tires but their overall tire diameters are often similar in due to larger tire walls on the 2.2s.
    Pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the RC car

    Any 12mm hex wheel with fit. 2.2 & 2.8 is the outer diameter of the wheel. Only thing that matters with that is how big the inside diameter of the tire will be. A lot of the 2.2 tires are the same outer diameter as the 2.8. Just the 2.2 has more side wall.
