I just bought the 17mm adapter to run the larger 1/8 scale tires and wheels, and after looking at the 1/8 scale conversion thread, I believe I will eventually attempt this myself as well. Just wanted to see what tires/wheels people would recommend me running 3S, 70 percent street and 30 percent dirt. I don't want anything to high profile to curb some of the ballooning from the 3S power. Preferably truggy width...

You're not really going to find truggy tires for pavement, because truggies are used almost exclusively for racing. I recommend going with something like SupraSales tires from eBay, they're so cheap you can afford a set for dirt and a set for on-road. One pair of ProLine premount truggy tires is about $50, and from SupraSales you can get a full set-- shipped-- for less than that.
If you do go with truggy size, start beefing up your drivetrain now. The combos weigh 3-4x as much as comparable buggy tires, and have 3-4x the contact patch. Pair that with a drivetrain built to run little, skinny tires, and you'll start breaking lots of parts.
yep thats where i bought my onroad set for my build. check it out http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...nversion/page9
