    How Old Are Revo Talon Tires/Wheels With White Plastic?

    I just found a set of never used 5.75 inch diameter Talon Tires/Wheels for my Revo. The guy said they came off a Revo 3.3. The rubber looks like new. However, the inside of the wheel has white plastic, not black. The outside is chrome. When was the last time Traxxas used white plastic?

    My old Revo 2.5 uses white plastic rims. There is a chance they came off the first model of 3.3.

    pictures could definitely help.

    They still manufacture those style of rims, you can find them on Traxxas website if you do a search. Iíve also found them on eBay.

    I asked Traxxas what was going on (black vs white plastic) and they had no idea.

    Here you go, straight from the Tmaxx accessories page. They are chrome front, white the rest of the rim because they apply chrome to the front.

    Like I guessed they where used on the original Revo 3.3 But because they are still in production it would be hard to tell when they where made.
