hey gang, (Please read - i know its seems like much, but i try to be as thorough as possible so that we're all on the same page)
i need some help deciding what rims i should be considering to couple with some new tires. ive decided on the badlands, simply because of all the positive reviews ive seen made and the fact im not too happy with the dirt hawgs i originally invested in.
heres my dilemma ...
this is for my rustler - that isnt quite the same rustler anymore
. in a nut shell, i took my rustler and extended the chassis with the strc lcg kit and swapped out the rear arms with 2wd slash rear arms (evened out the width of both front & back).
*i decided on keeping the front wheel offset of the rustler all the way around because i like the look and feel along with the baja bug body that i decided on using.
*Note: i am using 2.2" rims
since i want to keep this "stance" / width (of the rustler front wheel offset on all 4 corners), i simply dont know where to go from here.
what i saw that i am considering, are these pre-mounted Badlands SC 2.2"/3.0". They are described as "for Slash Rear, Slash 4x4 and Blitz* Front or Rear. Mounted on Renegade Black Wheels".
they are clearly described as being for slash rear, slash 4x4, etc.,etc.. and i guess thats fine and probably doesnt matter BUT
its the offset that im wondering might present problems and thats what id like to confirm.
- should i discard the idea of those premounts because of the offset of the rims they're mounted on?
- should i be looking into buying the tires and rims seperately?
- what rims should i be looking into ?
its the 2.2"/3.0" aspect of the tire thats complicating things as id REALLY
like to use these as opposed to the Badlands 2.2" All Terrain Truck Tires
because the Badlands 2.2" All Terrain Truck Tires are significantly bigger. Height: 5.06" (129mm), as opposed to the height of the SC Badlands, Height: 4.40" (112mm).
