1/8th scale truggy tires

Hey guys,

Just wondering are Truggy tires all the same size? I am looking for a set for my Mantis to keep the ones that came with it for the off road running and wanted a set with an aggressive road pattern for running in the parking lots and up and down the street.

One of the local hobby stores had rims which did not look right but he said i could just drill out the center.. I would rather not get into messing around if i did not have to.

Your issue won't be finding truggy rims there fairly common and basically come in 3 styles there's the old monster truck style which is a smaller rim meant to be used with a tire that has a large side wall, then there is the LPR which is a larger rim lower profile tire which makes the truck handle much better, and mid-late last season came the vtr style which is loke the lpr but is a narrower tire making the truck handle better and reducing weight. When you look for tires you have to find a harder compound M3 from proline and soft from AKA will wear away very fast on the street. You might want to run the tires you have now and then if you plan on coming out to the track next year then buy race tires that will work on that specific track.If you really want to change tires for playing in the street find some mtr style rims such as those axial ones you listed then put a tire like this on http://www.prolineracing.com/product...res-31-80.html the badlands seem to work on everything to bash around and there xtr compound(proline's hardest) so they won't wear to quickly
