    Any very small wheel/tire combos ?

    I'm looking for basically the smallest mass so there will be less breakage when I go brushless

    If anyone has any first hand experience, that would help a lot

    Badlands are great. Smallest basher Tire iv seen that isn't goofy small.

    1/8 scale truggy tires are even lighter too, but your generally only going to find race-style tread, ie pins.
    1/8 buggy tires are even smaller, but these are too small for anything bigger than a sct.

    you can get them pre-mounted on desperados and they have a 1/2 inch off set

    You might not want premounted... then you would have to unmount them to tape them.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    True but i don't know if I'll be going that fast anyway, im sticking with the spc 2s for as long as I can, I might be able to reach around 40 mph ?

    I really like the tread on the bad lands though

    Edit: how about premounted on desperados? Would those be much lighter than stock?

    I just remembered last time I tried gluing a tire back on, it was crazy wobbly
