Guys I bought a set of the HPI Phaltlines mounted on Blast Chrome Wheels. I have some flat spots in the factory wheels and the truck was hopping all over so I went to Sears this morning and purchased a thin wall socket and did the swap. All I can say is what a difference. The Phaltlines dont grab as much as the stock tires, but they drive and handle so much better on pavement. The truck doesnt want to flip over as easily while in a high speed maneuver. It turns on a dime, and accelerates like a bandit. I wish Traxxas would consider making a set of street tires for the Maxx's. The Phaltlines are in my opinion a 9 out of 10
They are the hot setup for the street!
I gotta get a set of those. I like running my Maxx on the street from time to time and I hate tearing up my dirt tires.

I love them the more I drive them. I pretty much broke them in and they are my favorite so far. They corner well, slide well when I lock the brakes up and I like the way they fishtail out of a turn when I nail it. Just a cool tire for those who run their trucks on pavement or blacktop.

I run my merv on the street more then my maxx but down the road would like to get a set
Does the traxxas wheel nut driver fit inside the hpi rim. I heard the space around the wheel nut is to small.
I just picked up a set off ebay. They should be here today. I have a new spur & pinion coming, to go with the on road set up too.

Don't try this at home!
They are about 5.5" tall so make sure you run taller gearing!
You will need a thin wall socket to do the swap.
there not on my maxx but they are awesome tires
Phaltlines are awesome tires. I have a set for my embe and a set for my d8t and absolutely love them!

i put phaltlines on my emaxx from the first day i got it and love them. i blew and tore a tire off the other day so i put the stocks back on. oh man what a difference and the difference was not good. the stock tires are so much grippier so the truck would not corner without flipping and when i hit the throttle it had so much torque i blew out my rear diff. i can see where the stocks tires are good for dirt and terrain but they are a definite no no for the pavement
Tried them once, they drift too much for my taste... I stick to the stock ERBE wheels...
