    Looks right and cool, i also have set of those tires on maxx rims and thinking it may be the perfect street/drag set-up? As wide/low they are should work good for high speeds, i need to get hexes(14mm?) and try'em.

    They look like they are ready to explode! One sideways slide might take all 4 off the rims?!

    Did you die those or paint them? I have a set that I tried to die, but I don't think I got all the chrome paint off good enough. Those look great black in my opinion. I have the Jato Victory tires on them though. You really need to lower your body with those on though. It looks really silly with the body up high.

    Yes, they do. I have those at home just like that. They don't have the best traction. Well they are ok on the back, but not up front. You can not steer wit those up front. They are a tiny bit better being sretched out.
    I'll miss you Jato :(

    That looks sweet--love the low pro look. But, unless you lower the body I'm not sure how they're going to look on the tall Pede.
    What kind of rims are those anyhow--I see they're Traxxas parts, but for what vehicle? What size hex? Since there aren't a whole lot of 2.8" rims out there, another option is nice to have.

    They are the stock Jato 2.5 wheels. The rear wheels from a Jato will fit on a Stampede, I have them on mine. I am going to lower the body some, but have to wait till I get some new posts.

    Those Tires Are Running Good, Doing 360's, Donuts, Jumping, Iv'e Had No Problems ( Except For Traction, But Then Again It's A 3.3)!! NO BALLOONING BECAUSE OF THE LOW PRO AND DOUBLE TAPING!

    I love my Road Rages. Sure... they don't have the greatest traction, but for street bashing they are great. While they may not have the best level of traction, I can still pull a wheelie rolling 20mph and punching the throttle. (Using MM7700). They seem to have a pretty soft compound and do not balloon too badly. They also wear really well.
    If it ain't broken... your not having any fun.

    i have a set on my modified t4 and they hold grip great at speed. i think the pede just exceeds the likes of the tire. not every tire is right for every vehicle even though it will fit.

    Those are the worse tires I have ever owned. I have set mounted on RPM Clawz wheels and hated them. Zero traction.

    A wheelie with Road Rage tires! Never thought I'd hear that one... They get so little traction, I don't see how that would be possible!

    anything but foams will have wheel spin if there's enough torque, you just gotta get tires that suit youre driving style!

    Really? I never figured they'd get enough traction! My vehicle did nothing but drift with those tires. Oh well... You're mileage may vary I suppose.

    its all about the surface you are running on too, go run those on some tar coverd asphault and watch the traction.

    thats interesting, i can run out in the street and get awesome traction, but like i said, i dont think they are made for something like a pede.
