    You can use traxxas geode wheels, that will work too.

    the Desperado 3.8 and Badlands 3.8 have matching beads. Are your Badlands 3.8?

    Yes, now for a stupid question, there is no such thing as tires with offset right, only rims, so i can fit 1/2 offset wheels to regular badlands, as long as they r both 3.8

    that combo wont work (3.2 wheel with 3.8 tire)

    These Panther paddles will work with the above Maximizers: http://www.rcplanet.com/Panther_Padd...p/paht110f.htm

    The Proline 3.8 Slingshots (paddle tires) need the Desperado 3.8 or Geode 3.8 wheel

    No the rim just needs to be 3.8, not 3.2 or 40 series or anything like that.
    Slugs are just naturally aspirated snails

    40 series are an even larger size than 3.8" (which is a traxxas wheel size). Proline has dropped a lot of their 40 series tires lately, leaving you with mostly 3.8 tires to choose from. It IS possible to mount 40 series on a E-Revo but then you would need both the wheels and tires to be 40 series, and this combination is usually too heavy for a E-revo.

    I would just choose one of the wheels here:

    And mount one of the tires here:

    Be sure to select tires with the traxxas style bead.

    Still would go with the Geode, if you want them black (or another color), spray them with Plastic Dip.
    http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_saca...sic+dip&_rdc=1

    Then you can add the Bead cover for some color or leave them off.


    If I was in the market for another set this would be what I would look at..........
