    those tires dont have the greatest reviews from all ive seen. and i know they balloon like crazy unless taped which isnt so good.

    at most hobby shops 2 traxxas tires already mounted on rims is about $28 plus the tax for stock tires. good aftermarkets tend to run around same price for just tires with no wheels. expect to spend around $70+ roughly for good tires and rims.

    if your looking for street only tires i would say get the proline street fighters. you can get them mounted for about $35 a pair. or get just tires for around $22 a pair plus the price of your wheels. wheels range from $9 for a set of 2 for basic glue on wheels and up for fancier wheels like beadlocks. but beadlocks wont hold up the faster you go. the tires will pull out of the beadlocks. i say its better to buy unmounted tires and glue them yourself for a couple reasons. one being you have more selections of combinations of wheels and tires. and two being that you can tape the inside of the tires to get rid of 99% of the tire ballooning which will make your car much more stable at speeds. so that way your looking about $62 plus any tax and shipping and handling. so like i said around $70 or so

    Lol wow thanks for the response, appreciating lol. But the thing is its hard to find the rims and tire specifications, like i dont know if the tires will fit on the rims or not. Lol im new in the hobby, and i like the street fighters but i heard the anaconda ones, do they fit exactly in the slash?

    they make some of the best tires. no questioning that really. any wheel that is rated as sc or short course will work with the street fighters pretty much

    here is all there wheels alone. now remember the front and rear wheels are different offsets. so you will need a pair that say slash front and a pair that say slash rear ( slash rear is same as slash 4x4 all around)

    Thanks, but wow the tires themselves are already 30 bucks for 2. Lol i know this hobby is expensive but im only 14 lol. But anyways, im thinking of getting the anacondas or the all terrain ones in the link you gave me. Like yesterday i saw my neighbor with his 1/10 nitro truck with big tires it made it look like 1/8 scale! So if im gnna get some how do i know if its big or not? And if i get big ones how would i know if it can turn if i put them on the front? Lol

    any of the tires will fit. sc means short course. its like a standard size almost. sc trucks like our slash take the 2.2x3 tire size to fit a stock size rim. the other dimensions matter but not as much. the only time you really even have to think about worrying about fitment is if your trying to make a monster truck or somthing and use wheels off a stamped for example. if the tire and wheel was designed for short course and has a 2.2/3" size it will fit.

    the m2 and m3 thing is how soft the rubber of the tire is. the softer the rubber the more traction you will have but...... the faster it will wear out. and pretty much anything is better then a stock tire.

    i myself am going to get trencher x tires in m2 medium softness. if you want to look closer at proline specs click on the part in question and then scroll down and click spec. it will give u the measurements there.

    http://prolineracing.com/tires/trenc...m3-soft-tires/

    these ones for example are 4.35" tall and 1.86" wide.

    if your complaining that just regular tires are to expensive you cant afford to do a mt conversion. you have to buy even bigger more expensive tires and rims. and either hack up your body wich will just look horrid or buy another body which means buying expensive paint and costing yet even more. just trying to warn you to choose your path wisely especially since your only 14 and im assuming have no job.

    and no the 2.2/3 is like this. look closely at the inside of your tires compared to the outdie. the inside is 3 inches across the center to clear the steering linkage and the out is only 2.2 inches so you have more sidewall. the overall height is the same as stated in the spec section that i even quoted as 4.35 inches tall.

    I know, but i was just wondering if i can put 1/8 tires? Will it work or not? Lol and i dont care about the body, from far away with the body it makes it look small and it just looks like a normal rc lol.
    And ohh i see now, and what is the stock tire height?

    nope those wont fit. you get what you pay for in this hobby man, you really do. if you try and cheap out it will come back to bite you in the butt. those are 17mm so they wont fit. if i remember correctly stock size is 12mm. and those are actual monster truck tires. you want something more off of a 1/10 scale truck with a 2.8 inch rim. this is why i said a stampede.

    all the ones that say 2.8"

    http://prolineracing.com/1-10-truck-wheels

    same. ones that say 2.8"

    http://prolineracing.com/1-10-truck-tires

    you will need both wheels and tires and then to do it right a body to (ones that say stampede)

    http://prolineracing.com/1-10-truck-bodies


    and you could always search ebay for auctions at chop shops that buy rc's new and strip them down and part them out. search for stock stampede wheels and stock stampede body.
