    Paddle Tire Question

    I am getting some paddle tires for my Maxx to run in the snow. Does anyone have any opinion on what is better for the tires in the wet. Do you vent the outside of the tires or just seal up the hole on the wheels?

    It's probably best to seal it completely, since it's simpler and less likely to fail.
    Everyday's a gift, thus now is called the present.

    Do they make paddle tires sized specifically for the Maxx? I see many people putting oversized tires on (and I assume gearing down so it isn't too much load on the system).

    I went with the E-Revo paddle tires for my Maxx. I did not see any 2.8 type paddle tires out there. Proline's paddle tire listed for the Maxx is also a 3.8.

    Any pics of the setup, or are you still waiting for the tires to arrive? What wheels did you go with?

    I used the entire E-Revo wheel/tire combo.

    I added some new pictures to my ongoing tire "inventory" here:

    I don't own a Maxx so not sure on compatibility but Traxxas makes the paddle tire in 2.8 if this helps.

    Traxxas 3.8 and Traxxas 2.8 for comparison.

    These are a 12mm Hex so good for a Stampede, etc. I have these for my son's Bigfoot #1. Won't fit the Maxx, it's 17mm.
