    will these tires fit these wheels?

    heya, i read up an old post about gaining extra stability by using super negative offset wheels.

    http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...eels-Installed

    but rather than using proline dirthawgs, i'm interested in JConcepts Goose Bumps Rear Buggy Tire Green 2.2 (2)

    with RPM Revolver Wide Wheelbase Black (2)

    do you reckon they will fit?
    the wheels are Width: 1.61"
    the tires are Width: 1.70"

    i know this is a silly question, but since i'll be buying from towerhobbies and have it shipped back to my country, i can't return the goods so i need to be 100% sure.

    thanks!

    Take a wild guess:

    Tire Diameter: 2.20" (55.9mm)

    Rim Diameter: 2.44" (62mm)

    You will have problems with the thickness of the hub. Revolver are much too thick and best way to mount them is with 4mm barrel nuts. Some have tried grinding it down so the nut will go on but most times they end up with a crooked wheel or ruining the wheels http://www.junfac.com/shop/index.php...products_id=21

    They will fit just fine, but as 50 said...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The tires will have no issue stretching that far.

    i understand the procedure of trimming down the hub, i am ordering 4 pairs, just incase i mess up. but if those barrel nuts will work i can definitely order em, since the shipping is only $3 from korea!

    i'm still a little confused, the tires CAN stretch 6mm right?
