    Rims

    Hey guys, does anybody know if these fit 2.2 trenchers? Just want to try something new. Rims
    I hope this brand isn't banned from Traxxas, and thanks for your help!

    If i were you I would not try to use the rims. The actual cost of the rims are not very much compared to the cost of the tires...

    Actually, if you get the trenchers mounted on the desperados, its $30 for 2 Trenchers with Desperados. If I get just trenchers tires and these it'd be around $30 too. Trenchers + Rims = $30
    But I get what you are saying. As for not just getting Trs on Desps, I just want to try something that's different, which what I want is.

    I get what you are saying, but I do not understand why you would do that... is it for looks? if it is just contact whoever is selling them...

    Well, for looks I guess. And so I have a unique car. But now, I think they would look better on a merv, so I will look some more. I am in no hurry to buy tires + rims, because I need the funds to do those, and first I will get some SMCs.

    I found these after I ordered the Badlands for my Xmaxx so I have no idea, but they have some really nice looking rims and tires just not sure on the quality sorry.
    I like these, but I like the rims with the Pioneers.

    Yeah, only problem is there for the x-maxx And if I got those pioneers, I'd go with the black rims: https://www.promodels.be/Car-Accesso...t-Rear-1-Pair/. Chrome would look sweet on the merv, but I think the black will be great on the summit.

    Too bad they don't have 2.2 badlands. They would be sick looking!

    I know you were looking for a smaller scale rc tire and rim but I found this video and it changed my mind on purchasing these.

    Those are the pioneers, right? Is that ballooning good or bad?

    Yes those are Pioneers. That kind of ballooning IMO is never a good thing, those tires will shred eventually. If you picked up tires and rims seperately and covered the vent holes in the rims and taped the tires and then vented the tires with a soldering iron with 4 holes at 90 deg. angles you might be ok. I recently did this to my BL Emaxx and my Xmaxx and they definitely run way better and no more water issues.

    Ok, thanks for the info! I don't think I'll ever get them going that fast anyway, as I won't be getting 3s batteries anytime soon. They are $10 cheaper than trenchers too!

    Now I am thinking of just doing the trenchers after all. These are on sale: https://www.asaphobbies.com/pro-line...yABEgL0BfD_BwE

    Edit: Hopefully they will be on sale when I get the funds to buy them.
