    Would these wheels rub with body?

    Ok so i'm in the process of turning my slayer into a slayer pro and i was searching for wheels and came across HPI Savage XL 5.9 17mm Wheels & Tires:



    Would these rub the body? I know the original slayer arms are shorter than slayer pro arms, would that sink the wheels underneath the body?

    Imagine running Revo or T-Maxx tires on your truck--those are comparable in size. I envision they would rub.

    Thats what I was thinking. What buggy tire size would you suggest instead?

    Yeah those tires are way too big for the Slayer. Regular 1/8th scale buggy tires and wheels fit good. They are roughly the same outer diameter size as the stock tires, a tad bigger but not much.
