Default New build and having a tire issue

Hello,

My son and I are completely new to this. He got a car for Christmas to build. This is the car he has built: PR S1 V3 FM SPORT 2wd Buggy kit

He is to the point of adding his tires which he did and finished up the rest so he could try it out. When he went outside to test it out the front tires kept coming off. Are we suppose to glue them on or place foam(like we did on the rear) in them or anything or how do we keep them on? With the tire on they seem like they are riding on the rim.

He has these tires
front:https://www.amainhobbies.com/schumac...6775%2fp232424
rear:https://www.amainhobbies.com/schumac...6842%2fp697584

Thanks for the help.

I wanted to bump this to the top. Hoping someone might be able to give us some advice.

Surface off-road section to post threads... RC Electric Off-Road Trucks, Buggies, Truggies and more
Some turf tires leave you the option of using inserts.
You want a good CA glue to secure the tires to the wheels.
All kinds of "how to" videos on YouTube about gluing RC tires...https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...luing+rc+tires

Thank you very much for the reply and sorry about that. I didn't realize I was posting to the wrong forum. Is it best that I copy and paste this question over there?

I think before I glue these on maybe I should be sure they are the right tire for running outside on the street and dirt. If you have a suggestion that would be appreciated.

One of the reasons I got away from 1/10 scale buggies was, because large knobby off-road tire selection is very bad. I gave up searching for tires. If I were "bashing" a buggy around, I'd have a set of tires for both off-road, and on-road RC fun. HSP, Exceed, Redcat Racing, DHK 1/10 scale buggy tires are what I would use for off-road. I'd try and find them unmounted if possible, 'cause I'm not sure of front offset you would need. Click image for larger version
