    17mm tire wheel options

    So I'm finally tired of stripping hexes every week. I've got the Tekno M6 gear and the 12mm get loose every couple of runs. I've used serrated nuts along with blue loctite. It doesn't matter. So I'd like to know if any 17mm hubs are available is a similar tire size to a 2.8 MT tire. I've had trenchers and badlands mx28's. Like em both. Problem is the 3.8 17mm hubs seem to be huge. I do t want my ride to look like the tires are not made for the truck. Any recommendations are welcome. Links as well. Thanks in advance.

    If you get them from somewhere else, be sure that you get the ones with the right offset like feral linked to.

    I switched my Slash to 17mm and the F-11s are the only 2.8s I've found. There are a few SC wheels in 17 mm and a ton of buggy stuff cheap on ebay but if you're looking at 2.8 the F-11 is it. Wheel companies are you listening????

    Question? Those are not actual beadlock wheels correct? The Super Swampers On that truck look mighty nice.

    Not quite sure what you're asking? The truck in my avatar has 2.8 Trenchers on F-11 17mm 2.8 wheels. They are not bead lock.

    Am talking about the tire's on the truck in ferals link. I didn't think they were true bead locks, saying it was molded.

    Maximizer makes 3.2" beadlocks with 17mm hexes. Great wheels, but quite a hassle to make tires fit and to keep them in place when you got an overpowered car.

    So I invested in RPM A arms all the way around. New shock guards just becasue. 17mm HR hubs and new Proline F11's wrapped in Badlands MX28's. I taped and glued them. She's ready to rock.

    I dont have a video but those tires are really gripping on the ground

    I can't wait to try them on snow

    The tires that comes with the P4de are bad, even on the tarmac

    Sorry Gripdog7205 but I had to add my 2 cents because I love those tires.

    I actually had a set for my Rustler. It would go places that surprised me. I kept ripping axles out of it though, so I sold them. When it was time for new tires on the pede I knew I wanted another set.
