Default Caldera Wheel/Tire Options

The Traxxas Jato rear wheels/tires ride on 12mm hexes. Will those fit the Caldera?

Or, can I take the Anaconda Tires (2.8") and mount them to the wheel of the Caldera?

Does anyone know about any other options?

just about any truck wheel with 12MM hex will work.

I guess I'll find out. I just purchased 2 sets of Anaconda Tires (2.8") mounted to black chrome wheels. TowerHobbies had a special!

So, the answer is no.

The Ananconda tires and wheels fit the Caldera, but they don't "Fit" the Caldera.

They look like a monster truck on lawnmower tires. The wheels are the same size, but the tire thickness is waaay off. They look ridiculous.

Next up, Talons...

the anacondas are the street tires right? they may look odd but will work if you run a bigger pinion gear on the motor to make up for the smaller diameter wheel.
