    Yes sir but they will make it wide. Rpm wide crawler revolvers will work due mostly to the massive offset.

    You can also use slash 4x4 2.2/3.0 rims that appear 2.2 on the outside for realism, but are 3.0 on the inside to clear the hub.

    if you plan on running them as your primary wheel then i would definitely look into picking up at least an 18 tooth pinion as going smaller will take some of the top end off of your truck. i've run mine on slash wheels before but only just to try. it was completely underwhelming lol.

    I would choose a tire with a diameter close to stock. I have some 6" tires on my trail built slash with sc wheels. Lol

    You can also use 2.2 tires on short course wheels if you can't find a 2.2/3.0 tire you like. Trim the 3.0 side. It's very easy. I have a write up on it buried in the archives somewhere.

    mwe-maxxowner is right on the mark. I have multiple sets of RPM Revolver wide wheelbase (part# 82232) wheels for my P4de. I love them. SCT and 2.8" wheels work well too.

    If you wanna make it more stable id recommend protrac kit ext a-arms, 10mm offset 17mm adapters and different shocks and springs like gtrs or d8s. Heres a tuning guide that may help. https://traxxas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6167328

    Just need one more rc, then Ill be done...

    Protrac kit is awesome!

    I think crawler revolvers are counter productive. What they offer in stability they take away in steering. Though for a basher that may not matter. I'd settle for the look of a 2.8 or run a short course rim in a stock offset personally.

    In that case I say short course wheels. I've seen a few desert buggy slash builds that were very well done using short course wheels and tires.

    With the buggy theme you aren't going for monster truck sized tires I imagine and a wide offset would look...off.
