Default Road tires for my Earthquake 8e!!!!

Looking for some road tires for my Earthquake 8e. tried to clock it the other day and got to 48mph and the rear end was wagging around so much I could not control it. I guess it is from the tires ballooning up. Would Backdraft wheels and tires work?

Does your Earthquake have the 17mm hex on the back of it's wheels? I cant tell from the product pix, but the wheels dont look like the standard 17mm type? You can see a shot of the wheels in the Backdraft pix.. Notice the big nut thatholds em' onto the axles.. If your Earthquake takes the same, then they should work fine! Good luck!
