I know this is off topic but I posted it on the mt2 thread and never got any replies. I have the mt2 cvd's in my tsunami and I was wondering if there are any silicone dust boots that might fit over the mt2 cvd's any ideas? Im just not willing to spend 40 bucks on new cvd's all the time so I want to keep them nice and clean.

These should fit. I use them on my ST-1 and my Hellfire.

The diameter of the tire is different and so is the drag on the tires, a 4x4 needs to be exactly the same other wise the gears bind and wear faster [&o]

Probably not what you want to hear, Get a new set of rims and tires maybe like [link=http://xtm-dealer.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=24&products_id=722]THESE[/link] or get a set of [link=http://xtm-dealer.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=24&products_id=737]THESE[/link] with any of the [link=http://www.xtm-dealer.com/30%20series%20tires%20&%20wheels.html]30 series tires[/link] those will work or any of the 2.2 12mm hex wheels with the same size as the original size tires in the 2.2 size...............good luck

I'd used acetone to remove the tires from the rims, that's what the guy at the HS told me, but I'd be careful no to drop any on the finish of the wheels, and I'm not sure if it will eat the tire as well, I decided to buy a new set of tires while I was at it. let someone else answer, for confirmation though.
