    Help with Proline Trenchers

    I just ordered 4 Proline Trenchers for my p4de and have gotten them all mixed up. Is there a correct way to install these or does it not matter?

    Should the tread go a certain way? If anyone has any "above" photos with these installed or an easy way to tell me the correct way to install them?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question...

    It is only stupid when you have a question and you don't ask it when you don't know the answer (read my signature) ....

    There is a very tiny difference in the direction in the thread, but that doesn't make any difference with driving.
    I mailed Proline and that is what they told me about it.

    Pretty sure no matter what way you look at them the threads look the same. This is without looking, but i remember wondering the same thing when i got mine.

    I just ordered a set too, I have never actually owned a set ,but have studied them hard. Apparently there is a little difference in 1 of the H shape thread pattern. So I don't think it makes a big difference in which way they rotate, more of preference I think. Hope I was some help

    The difference where you can see that they are directional can be seen here:

    As far as the picture is positioned, that would be the side where the FACE of the rim would be when mounted.
    Everything overpowered...

    Proline considers them to be non directional, so there is no way to put them on the wrong or the right way...

    Yeah. I got them on and holy cow do they have some grip. I must have rolled it 10 times my first drive with them.

    I love my Trenchers and the tires are wearing well. I'm not happy with the Deperado rims though. They're getting cracked and out of round and not as durable as the Traxxas rims were. I'm going to try Revolvers next.

    Correct. And the put a dot on the outside so you'll mount them with the right side facing outward.
