    Already ordered them.. 50, I will try them and if I have to I will try and remove the tires from the rims and tape. Knew I should have read more and asked here before I placed the order.

    Not too bad. You pick up a lot of speed when they balloon!

    You could try winding fishing line around the outside, secured in a few spots with super glue.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Premount tires are never taped from the factory. Buy unmounted and tape them yourself
    __I would look at hpi 2160 for chrome looking or 2140 black both have more offset then the web and you can even run dirt hawgs on them with a little stretching

    Premounted tires at high speed balloon (get skinny )at high speeds

    Thought I would give an update. My charger and tires came in today. I imeditly read the direction for the charger and spc lipo's and got a battery on charge. While charging I mount the tires and wheels changed to the 23 tooth pinion. Wow my merv came to life. Got it out side and right away a wheelie and plenty of speed! I only bash so didn't notice much balloning in the tires. Temp maxed out at 130 so I'm happy. I will have to watch the temps in the summer but think it should be okay.
