    Wheels?

    Are there any wheels that fit the stock talon tire for the Revo Vxl's? And are the wheel sizes 2.2?

    no...

    sorry let me elaborate... most wheels have a vertical (standard) mounting groove and bead... the mini revo's talon tire uses a side (horizontal) mounting much like 1/8 scale buggies and the 1/10 revo tires...

    if you look closely to the picture in the link below you will notice the side mount...

    wouldn't look right on a revo... those are sedan wheels and tires

    the outer diameter of the stock tire is 3.3" and those sedan tires are 2.5"

    According to BP-revo
    Proline 1/10 Buggy Holeshots - 3.2 inches in diameter, 1.8 inches wide (perfect blue groove track tire).
    Stock Tires - 3.25 inches in diameter, 1.8 inches wide.

    So I was thinking maybe the Holeshots would fit on stock rims as a viable option?
    Just a thought, so please correct me if I am wrong!
    "Wow thats amazing! How much does it cost?"
    "oh"
