Default Losi Rally-X 1/10 - Drift/Slick Wheels & Tyres

Hello,

Can anyone help me with the parameters i need to find some Drifting/Slick Wheels for my Rally-X.

I have no idea what I need to use for my search parameters. Its my understanding that generic 1/8 or 1/10 Wheels will not fit the car for some reason.

This is my first car.
Unfortunately, there are no RC hobby stores in my area to visit. I emailled three places and no-one knew what wheels or tyres i would need to purchase.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

It was particularly hard to find that car, apparently the 1/14th and 1/24th are more popular. Looks like they use a standard 12mm hex so any 1/10 drift tire should fit just fine. What led you to believe that 1/10 wont work? good looking car for sure

The RallyX is really a short course truck with a car body on it. As such it uses short course wheels to clear the suspension just like the Traxxas Rally does. I don't know of any drift tires (mounted or otherwise) that fit SCT wheels or 2.8 wheels. There are some 1/8 drift tires out there but you'd need 17mm hex adapters to run them. The other option is stuffing your current wheels and tires into some PVC pipe to make your own drift tires.
