    It depends on what surfaces you are going to run on, suprasales on ebay has some good, really cheap tires if you are willing to convert to 17mm hubs.

    Running a set of Axial Exo Terra tires and rims. Ridiculous grip, have been great so far. Got them off eBay for $30 shipped for all four.

    Any short course tire and rim will work if it is for the slash 4x4. Are you looking for street or dirt tires?

    I'm using 17mm hex on my rally. I already have a pair of sweep belted slicks but want to try something else that's belted with tread. Was wondering if both of these would work (fit) the rally? I don't want to waste money and order the wrong item. So I was hoping someone could provide some help. Also looking for rim suggestions to pair with either of these tires. Links preferred. Thanks

    The HPI's definitely wont fit. The Onfa's should though.

    Suprasales on ebay will have good SCT rim rim's combo's. Cheap and you don't need to goto 17mm adapter's.

    I already have 17mm adapters. I own some suprasales for my slash. They are nice. Especially for how they are priced. But looking for belted street tires. Not sct wheels. These are for my rally build. Which will be street only. Thank you for the suggestion.

    That explains a lot, thank you! Onfa, Sweep Racing, and the Duratrax banditos are good tires from what i've heard for 1/8th scale.

    Street fighters will work but they aren't that great of a tire, Duratrax bandito sc's are way better.

    You could go with 2.8's but they would still look silly...

    Will these rims work with these tires and go on a rally that already has 17mm hex?
    Thanks

    Yes they will. There are quite a few pics in the gallery if you want to see how it will look.
    Cheap, Fast, Reliable. Pick 2.
