    Think these wheels are too small for the MERV

    I got these for a birthday gift last night and the package said " Type II billet machined Wheel +tire Set
    (4) for the Traxxas E-revo/ Summit and Slash (1/16)" . I mounted them up last night and they look dinky on there. Look more like mini slash wheels, what you guys think ? BTW I have prolines w/dirt hawgs on order too . Cant tell well in the pic, but alot skinnyer than stock tires too.

    Looks pretty small. Maybe decent road tires with a 31 pinion added in

    I dont run much on the road, think I would be able to mount a large tire on them ? the HS my sister got them from is like 2hrs from me so cant really take them back.

    Ya, kinda peeved but they were a gift so not the end of the world. Im expecting my prolines w/dirt hawgs any day now from tower but not sure what to do with these. Price tag was $54.99 (CAD).

    They look awesome and the tiny bit smaller is no big deal.

    The only problem I see with them is they apparently are Integy. That means they are junk. Run them a few times and they will be broken or cracked anyhow.
