    6s vs 8s tires? difference?

    so im on the market for some 8s rated tires for my xmaxx and im coming across what i believe to be misleading prices saying they have a brand new complete set of 8s but when they give me a part number from the xmaxx they took these new tires off of they give me a 6s xmaxx from 2016 which means they never had the original packaging for the tires - sooo is there any visible difference in these tires that can be noticed?

    thanks

    yes i found the jennysrc ones - are those legit 8s? cause the item description is says they are from a 77076-4 which is a 6s xmaxx

    edit:
    i also just found lumidave

    just seems like they are too cheap to be legit 8s but then again the 8s was released in what 2017 so there probably isnt any new in box 6s out there so these are likely 8s? lol

    Jennys is a kit breaker so they will be 8s tires. Since only the 8s x-maxx is sold any more.
