    Confused

    Could someone explain the use of these?

    They go on the axle shaft for use with Traxxas 17mm rims.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Yep, what Jimmie said. I would recommend them, 17mm hex wheels are alot more durable, especially if you have already or plan to go brushless, plus they will open up a whole new set of tire options, excellent choice if you are going to race your E-Maxx.

    So these tires — http://prolineracing.com/tires/trenc...tires-mounted/ — wont fit on my stock e-maxx but they would fit on those upgrade wheel hubs because they are 17mm?

    Yes.
    However, there are two reasons I can think of right now as to why not to buy Traxxas hexes for that rim:
    1) The Traxxas spline is not needed for that rim.
    2) Traxxas hex's are known to get sloppy over time, requiring either replacement or modification.

    HPI makes a hex set that is 100% bolt on:

    Wait so what you are saying is that I shouldnt get those Pro-Line pre-mount trenchers because they WILL NOT fit on my stock E-Maxx?

    I am not saying to not get them.

    If you want them, they will fit with minimal work. The first thing you will need is a 17mm hex set to match the rims. The hexes you linked to will work, but they will also get sloppy after a while. The HPI hex set I linked to solves that.
