    Thunder Tiger MT4 Wheels and Tyres

    Are they a good tyre for a summit and do they have a 17mm hub?

    Not sure if they have a 17mm hub, but the those tires baloon like crazy on the truck. If you are looking for a tire that doesn't baloon too much under heavy power then I would stay away from these.

    17mm hub... decent all around tire I think.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Taping helps any tire with ballooning. But taping also will stop some of the tire conforming is doing in rock crawling.
    If you not going to be doing a lot of rock crawling, yes tap them.
    Endeavoring to persevere !

    The tires don't balloon that badly on the MT4 under 4S power... which is about 40MPH for that RC. Since the Summit probably won't reach those speeds with a DeWALT, I think you would be fine without taping.

    Give me a few weeks and I can tell you for sure if they balloon.

    Yes they balloon badly under 6s I should have been clearer in my first post. I specifically saw it run under 6s power. Should not be as bad under a 4s load.

    Only tape if necessary. If the tape comes off inside the tire it will be way out of balance. If you need tape,..you may have bought the wrong tires,....imo.
