Default Savage XS, Better tire choice.."pix"

Ok, decided not to go with the buggy tire... I found & forgot that i had a set of wheel/tires from my old Hpi Nitro MT...(Yeah I keep everything)..lol
They fit perfect, same size, the proline tires (Dirt Pawes) feel nicer then the stock hpi one (softer). it also has more offset too, witch is really nice. Just have to paint the rims black or something.. These should def. grip better... the stock r to hard and tend to drift and slide to much.
Let me know what ya think .
