    I would say yes. Great offroad tire and will help with your drive train .
    Im afraid they wont fit on your axials, those need 40 series tires if am not mistaken. But someone else will have to confirm this!

    But if you go for badlands, tape them! As you have seen in my pictures my tires do not balloon, and i run 6s. All thanks to the gorillatape

    They are made for all terrain but do wear down faster on the streets. Trenchers last longer on the streets but badlands outperforms them on every surface

    Badlands wont fit on Axial oversized beadlocks...they make a great tyre for dirt and grass. I have mine mounted on 1/2" offset Desperados, not great for asphalt tho.

    I second everything MITCH316 said ^. The Badlands are IMO the ultimate off-road (dirt & grass) tire. I too have mine mounted on Desperado’s; and taped w/ Gorilla Tape (x2 wraps). I first tried to mount them on the Traxxas Geode Wheels but they are just a fraction wider than the Desperado’s and since the Badland’s are on the narrow side I liked the fact that the Desperado’s provided more sidewall protection.

    There are two types of 3.8” tires out there. One is a 40 Series bead and the other is a Traxxas style bead. I don’t believe you can make a Traxxas style bead work on a beadlock rim. The second hurtle would be the fact of how wide the Axial Oversized wheels are compared to the Badlands.

    Trencher X > Badlands for rocks and dirt. Trenchers are not so good on grass as Badlands, but then again, driving on grass is not bashing, so it can be disregarded

    Warning, Warning

    Here is a special Alert to all non-Badland owners but is considering these tires!!!!!

    If you like a well manicured lawn and you drive your RC in the yard………the combination of Badlands on a 4s or higher erbe does not fare well with grass. These tires will shred a yard in no time.

    However, if you have a neighbor you don’t like………it may be a good investment. Not that I would ever recommend this……just say’n!
