    Trenchers

    Does anyone know if the Proline Trenchers will fit on the rustler with an RPM wide front bumper, without rubbing?

    I was thinking they might rub the bumper, or even the body during hard turns or landings.

    I had the bumper for a bit (I didn't like it, broke 2) with those tires and it didn't hit the bumper but those tires will hit the body and eventually crack it. You can trim the body a bit to prevent that.

    Oh, I thought he was talking about the bandit, Yeah the body will catch on the tire and eventually destroy the body.

    I figured that they might rub the body. Which kinda sucks because I like the way those tires look.

    The Rustler has Talons on it now, and while the size of them is ok, the traction off road just isn't as good as I'd like.

    I was thinking about the Badlands but I don't care for how narrow they are.

    Get the Badlands MX28's.
    And then get new axles

    Those were actually what I wanted originally. They looked wider than the trenchers.

    I figured those would be to big to fit the rustler.

    I like the moto-cross tread pattern.

    I had them on my Rustler a couple years ago. They fit
