Default Offroad rear rim/tyre combo - Team C TR02T/Associated. RC10

Having a bit of difficulty finding cheap rear rim/tyres combo online for this truggy.. Here's a pic of it:



This truggy is basically a cheap copy of the Associated RC10 series... One would assume that the rims would be interchangable between the two, but I'm not 100% sure. Are there any decent online shops that have these tyres? Looking for somewhere that won't charge an arm and a leg for postage.

Tires are expensive. If you cheap out on them and use junk, you'll get junk effects.

Just buy a pair of Associated wheels and Pro Line tires (M3 Caliber would be a good all-around tire for bashing) and enjoy your newfound grip.

Hmm.. I'm trying to find some premounted ones cheap.. Suggestions?

Do Ileave the fronts as-is? They don't seem to wear quickly on the road (as you'd expect being 2WD)

dude, if you got the tr02t then it already comes with rims and tyres.

If you got the kit it already comes with rims so just buy some tyres and glue them on yourself

I've worn the kit tyres down so that they are almost bald, so I was hoping to keep them to continue to use them on the road... Iwas hoping to have a completely different set of wheels/tyres strictly for offroad use only.

It uses hexes, so it won't fit associated rims.

guess that makes it a pretty bad copy....

Guess that makes it a improved copy

associated wheels requires different cvd's, they are an optional part, does not come with the kit

Yes. One suggestion is to learn to glue tires, and the other is to stop being so obsessed with cheap.
