    Cool rims ant tires

    hello traxxas world.

    im fixing to buy new set of rims and tires for my summit. something geared towards crawling.
    any sugestions? something to keep in mind? is a 17mm hex the only hub size i can get?

    i really like these will they fit?

    Those ones are way to small for your truck, unless thats what your going for even if correct hex they probably wouldn't clear the hub's. as those are 2.2, and summit stock size is like a 3.8 look at 40 series tires/rims

    I agree... those would make your Summit look like Bigfoot with his trailer tires on.


    (never realized how difficult it would be to find a picture of Bigfoot with his trailer tires on)

    You are not limited to a 17mm hub.
    But I definitely would not go smaller.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The best crawling tires are the stock ones, they're pretty much perfect.
    This is a signature.

    hahah

    yea there great but they ware out very quickly when crawling on rocks.
    it seems like most tires you could put on the summit the 3.8 or 3.2 looks to big aswell dont want oversied just want something to look good and be functional aswell.

    Okt23,

    Are you sure your Summit is 1/10 scale? Or is it a 1/16? Just trying to help out
