Default Wheels and Tires

I'm looking for wheel & tire combos that are the same or slightly larger than a set of Traxxas Talons, 12mm hubs, etc...

Traxxas Talons are 4.8 x 2.7 and they're on a 2.8mm wheel.

Here are some that I'm looking at, but I don't know the actual sizes. These are Electrix RC Ruckus Tires/Wheels and Earthquake 8E Tires/Wheels.

Figured I'd hit the forums so that you guys can give me more information.

Isay contact the seller and get them to measure the ones your looking at, cant tell by looking at the photos

The set on the left look to be the biggest wheels and the side wall distance from wheel to tire looks about the same on each so if that id the case and the whels on the left are actually bigger then the set in that pic look to me as the bigger tires and wheels, but they still may not be what you are looking for.....

contact seller and get them to give you some measurements, I've noticed the tire and wheel measurements are mostly always listed in milimeters ( mm ) most calipers have both inch & mm measure on them, thats how I've checked mine for comparison.

Good luck finding what you want.

Peace
