    Wheels for slayer pro 4x4

    Done some searching online for info on some wheels but haven't had any luck. When I looking for wheels, am I searching for 14mm wheels or for 1/10 truck wheels? I've had 2 different people give me info but I don't think their correct. I'm looks my for nothing to big

    Sorry, my son accidentally hit the post button.

    I was saying. I'm looking for something that's the same stock wheel or maybe a little bigger. Any info would be great. Thank you

    Might be easier to just convert to 17mm hubs, then you can run any 17mm rim/tire combo.

    I had the same problem with trying to find new tires and rims. I ended up putting the Revo 17mm hubs on and a set of SC8 tire/rim for on road and a set of 1/8 buggy wheels for off road. The tires are slightly taller and about the same width as the stock set

    I'm new to his hobby but how do you convert to a larger hub? Pretty simple?

    Hay Carey1465.
    It was very easy to switch the hubs, just remove the wheals and you will see the hub with a pin in front of it. Remove pin and take off the hub.
    I used these hubs https://traxxas.com/products/parts/5353X
    I just found there are more choices for 17mm hubs

    You can find those on ebay for cheaper. They will get slop in them though as the threads grind away at the inside of the hub. When that happens, you can cut the hub off flush with the hex and use these nuts:

    That's what I'm running on both my revos at the moment.

    Thanks for the info guys. I just ordered some off of eBay. So when I order wheels then, I do a 17mm search then? Maybe Santa will bring me a new set of wheels for xmas 🏻

    Yep. Any standard sized 17mm buggy wheel should work for you. I have a drawer full that I tried over the years, some when I had the slayer, have some on my jato at the moment and my 1/8 buggy of course. The jato required aftermarket hubs.

    I don't hear of a lot of guys putting 12mm hubs on to run slash wheels. Why is that? I hear a lot of the 17mm hex.

    Because they would rather run buggy tires and rims.

    I'll have to look into that. What I want to do is run some badlands. But I would like to have bead locks.

    Im not sure why people wanna do that tho, isn't there more of a variety for wheels in the 12mm sizes rather than 17?

    Quite a few variations of tire tread pattern and rubber compound when running 1/8 buggy wheels/tires.
