ya they're 23mm hexes... Ithink you would just have to switch out the hexes and mount up the wheels...But the shafts may be different size.

it was scarletboa that did that, i saw the pic in the pics of your savages thread, then a few posts down he found out that they were different , and he did a little dammage to his rims cuz he tried to get the 23mm's onto the 24mm's while the 24mms went onto the 23's easy

it wasn't me[]

baja tires on a savage would be retar.......er...not good lol.

the baja tires are much heavier than ANY 1/8 tires. they must weigh like 3 times more. there will be NO benefit from swapping tires like that. i was thinking about putting moabs on my baja but i found that it had been done before and the moabs balloon too much. i have been thinking about getting some mashers for my baja on 23mm hex rims and a conversion kit that fits on the baja axles.

those tires would be huge and scarletboa(btw sorry i thought it was you, tho memory isn't what it used to be), has a point about weight, roataing mass, and such, and if my 2.2 badlands tires are anything to go by i don't think you'll need the 5b versions the 1/8ths will be just fine they get beastly traction on everything that wasn't hard as a rock, even a hard packed driveway, more grip than anyother tire ive driven... tho i'd like to see a 40 series version...

there are some rims that have a larger offset, i think they would look alright if they didnt stick out.
