    2.2" rims with 2.8" tires?

    Can I put 2.8" trencher tires on my 2.2" revolvers ? Will it effect the performance ? Or do I need to find some 2.2" Trenchers I they exist

    That's not even mathematically possible. 2.2" is the O.D. of the wheel. 2.8" is the I.D. of the tire.

    They exist but they are super tiny. They're made for the 1/16 trucks.

    Go with 2.8" Trenchers with 2.8" wheels and it'll all work well.

    If you have to use those 2.2" Revolvers then get 2.2" Pro-Line Gladiators (part#: 8170-01 – M2). I love mine.

    I have the 2.2/3 sc trenchers x. Not as soft as the 2.8's so not as much cushion on the jumps but really nice on corners with the closed cell foam.

    ^^^ Our beloved swashbuckling primate is right. The Rusty has 12mm hexes. If your Revolvers are 12mm then all will fit together swimmingly. Yes, I'm in a mood.

    Great to hear it! Be patient and go very slow with gluing the tires on. Gluing tires is a pain in the neck and I hate it . . . but got to do it in this hobby. Ugh.
