Did a search, couldn't find anything here.
I don't need to yet, but I bought some new tires and inserts and glue the other day, as I read that the Rustler's stock front tires don't last long on pavement.
They don't have a whole lot of traction on grass, either.
Anyway, I want to know the right way to do this.
Any help appreciated.
Just a quick YouTube search:
Some may be duplicate methods... I did not preview them.
I have used acetone and a new X-Acto to remove rims before... worked rather well.
Or are you just wanting to unbolt one set and both on another?
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
I prefer boiling my tires for 20 minutes (that means get the water boiling, drop the tires in , stir occasionally submersing the tires).... Then,,, let them cool. The glue will become brittle and the tires will not rip, do this hot, burnt fingers and ripped beads....
After that, herre's a nice way to set up your tires on your rims so they are nice and even and pretty well balanced... http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...t=Tire+Glueing

I spent What??
Re the duct taping of the inside of the tire; I don't run hard, in fact I'm about to switch the ESC back into "trainer" mode (which only gives 50% throttle top end) because I'm tired of flipping the truck over when I punch the throttle, and I'm too cheap to buy a wheelie bar.
I haven't noticed any ballooning issues running the truck at "trainer" and "max" settings, on high-speed pavement and short grass runs. But, WOULD I see it in the first place?
