    Just wonder because I stripped out a hub and bought a replacement set and not sure if I'm better off throwing the brand new tires in front or rear.

    Front or rear either one, but it sounds as if not the tire wore out, but the hub stripped out which is caused by not checking wheel nuts every run.....

    a small dab of blue locktite works well to keep them from loosening even tho they have nylock in the nuts....

    Yeah it was like this when I bought it. I'm running the Hott Racing 17mm hubs with the serrated wheel nuts now. There tight.... I just want put the newer tires where they'll wear faster to catch up to the older ones.

    Ya my XTM MMT has no nylock in the 17mm hub/wheel nuts, I use locktite blue and even under heavy bashing my wheels stay on. I put it on when I clean and prep for next runs, and let dry well.... I have to use a 3/8 drive ratchet to remove my wheels but they stay put always :lmao:
