Ask and ye shall receive. MT tires are 2" taller and almost a good 1" wider. So, I would say that they would not be a good scale fit.

Xo-1 tire

Tires: 118+mph speed rated belted slicks with foam inserts, 4.29"
(109mm) outer diameter, 1.7" (43mm) wide front, 2" (51mm) wide rear

Monster truck size tire (Tmaxx)

Tires: 6.3" (160mm) outer diameter, 3.8" (96.5mm) inner diameter
all terrain Maxx
Wheels: Hurricane chrome wheels 3.8" (96.5mm) diameter, 2.75" (70mm)
wide

Pretty cool. Belted tires would help with ballooning a lot. would like to see a photo of one that has been cut open to see the steel belts.

Ask and ye shall receive:

Buyer beware, these tires are a joke, and it appears they are falsely advertised. Hopefully a reasonable explanation can be provided, but it would appear that these tires are simply over priced pieces of junk that are not belted. Or they are belted in all the wrong places.

These pics are from a buddy of mine who purchased these tires a week ago. Set them up for the initial test runs on his EB4-G3, and they lasted less than 60 seconds on 6s. It took him longer to set up his camera than it did for the tire to blow out. There is enough damage that you can clearly see no belts at all. These tires balloon just like any other RC tire.









Very, very shoddy and shady for tires at $72 a pair.

The good news is, theLHS gave my friend a full refund, and Ipanema has backed the LHS.

Now we're back to 0 belted MT slicks on the market...

That's a shame. I'm glad your friend got his money back.

Interesting... I checked the link near the top of the thread and it doesn't work, so I found their site through a google search and the page for these tyres only refers to them as racing slicks and doesn't mention anything about them being a belted tyre.

Yep.  JSpeed/ipanema has taken down the listings showing it as a belted tire, as a result of this incident.

He PM'd me and gave me a rundown of the situation with the company that manufactures the tires for them.  Apparently they are in the process of getting the production corrected.  In the meantime, they are not listing them as belted any more.

latufu- I might know you or something.

some guy came into the hobby shop with a truggy with those tires, same split, same story....

what is also funny (kinda) is that the tire foam is almost the same color as the body.

avoid these tires guys, they suck.
