I'm not sure i sold them before I had a chance to try them out. They had some dry rot on them. they were hard compound tires

Proline Mulchers on RPM 1/2 offset revolver wheels...
Cool thing about these are I can run them on any of my nitro rigs because they all use 17mm hexes to mount....


Sometime soon I will have to see what these RedCat 3.8 3/4 offsets with Losi Super Bolton's look like on the Savage
, They do work well and setoff the look of my XTM MMT Truck...

Tamiya DV Lug tires mounted on RPM 17mm hex wheels with 1/2 offset.....





These seem to dwarf the stock Savage X 4.6 tires and wheels....


I will glue em down with my customary Plumbers Goop to keep em from flying off the wheels :D

My son has a set of Big Joes in his LST rig, they have way too much side bite for my tastes, his rig flips over all the time with them mounted on it......

Mine does the same thing when I'm running it on asphalt or cement road. But on grass or dirt it grabs really good for me and it doesn't flip at all. I am also thinking of trencher 3.8

View attachment 1165 View attachment 1166 Hey guys. Just a little update about my proline big joe 3.8. After installing sway bars I had better traction and way lesser flips if not any.
while sway bars will work decent on smoother surfaces, they will limit suspension travel off of most jumps and rough ground and cause more problems that they are worth..... so if you have big air in mind I would recommend removing them or at least disconnecting them for this type of antics....

I don't do any jumps at all, and I run it mostly on parks. So maybe that is why it works for me? But that is definitely something to think about. Thanks Jam Racing 1

I love my sway bar set up as well. helps me powers slide in the grass at full throttle with no roll overs. But I also do not jump my truck, it's only a backyard basher.

Yup, they are Redcat 3.8 wheels with 3/4 offset and 17mm hex drives. only ones I have found lately are in Austrailia and shipping is as much as the wheels are :(

No idea what the rims are but I am sure that the tyres are DirtBonz (if you look very closely, you might see it written on the sides!!!)

I like the second ones for winter since the rubber is a bit softer compound, but I really like the chevrons for summer since I run on concrete and grass 99% of the time and they don't have a ton of side bite.
