    Bought New wheels today :)

    Went to my LHS to buy some screw pins for my e maxx and ended up getting these wheels for my " RocK Slash " hahaha. Pro Line BOW TIES.




    Will end up painting the rims flat black

    Hope you have a different body,and or body lift kit.
    Those 2.8's will not play nice with the slash body.
    This one has a lift and body cut out for street fighters,their more for winter shelf time.

    See the body post's? You need to lift the body,or your tires and body will both get tore up.

    Bow Tie 2.8? What's the diameter on them? I didn't know that PL had a 2.8" Bow Tie, nice. If they are 4.3" or so, they will fit without much or any body modifications. Much more than 4.5" will require lifting the body and some hackery.

    There about 5.4 inches.
    I better double check,but street fighters on 2.8,are over 5 inches.


    Yep,about 5 even with the street fighters.
    My 2.2 3"s bow ties are about 4"

    What about when the suspension has to work?
    It almost looks like they changed the tread padurn a bit,and that is one low profile bow tie.
    This is the three inch side of mine.

    Thanks Billy I think they'll do ok for now till I get use to the tire knowledge but billy I like how ( itsstock10) truck sits lower. I went another notch over on the front lower arm. Next would be a shorter spring ?

    You might want to spend another $50,and buy a set of low profile street fighters.
    Those bow ties wont last long on the street.
    Then you can save your bow ties for off road.

    I feel that bow ties are just throwing money away, they dont have any tread depth to them, so they wear out very fast, or that is what I think.

    You must not spend a lot of time at the dirt track's,they are very popular,but on the street they will wear quickly.
    But on dirt,they do a great job,and have a good life span.
