I have a box full of Pro-Line Holeshots (worn down) that I keep for them days I choose to run on blacktop. Jaco foam tires...if you can find those anymore. Have a look at Pro-Line's Speed Hawg 2.2 inch Street Truck Tires (#1080-00).

Edit: Here ya go... Jaco 1/10 Rear Tire/Wheel

You can get them in soft compound as well.
I see Tower Hobbies still carries them...HERE.

Thanks. That is what I was looking for. I'll also have to try grinding down a set of worn out dirt tires.

think your best bet would be getting 17 millimeter wheel converters. That way you could use 1/ 8 on-road Wheels there a lot more durable than the ones listed above. and a good bit cheaper on ebay

tiers and way more to choose from

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...+foam&_sacat=0

i have these and will work on any 1/10 scale.

For on-road racing with a 1/10 scale platform...I'd stick with 1/10 scale sized tires and slam (lower the ride height) the truck down. Running oversized knobby tires will just prevent lowest possible ride height, and increase the possibility of traction rolls.

Just saying.

If you check the specs sheets the 1/8 onroad tiers are smaller then the 1/10 jaco tiers you linked by half a mm. Plus there weigh less so less rotational mass

As for buggey tires on a slash there just about the same size not enough to make any difference. A slash handles so much better with buggy tiers its ineradicable. No ballooning like slash wheels at high speed. So the truck stays closer to the ground on speed runs

A slash and a 1/8 buggy have the has the same wheel base even though the slash is classified as a 1/10.

Here is a slash converted to a 1/8 scale onroad. a 1/8 scale onroad is just a converted 1/8 buggy





Not saying you will win any races with it but its fun for running around a packing lot, If you used a slash 4x4 with the low cg chassis and stiffing the shocks then you would have something

RustyUs do you know if Jaco also makes the foam tires/wheels for the Rc10 B4.1? I can't seem to find them listed.

I'd maybe go with Jaco tires/wheels for touring cars and whatnot...http://www.rcplanet.com/1_10_Nitro_S...p/jac3035p.htm
As long as you got 12mm hex adapters, I'd think you will have no fitment issues. Touring car wheels... lots of ways to go for on-road fun. It all depends on what direction you want to go, and how much effort you want to put into making an off-road subject on-road .

Just for poops and laughs, here's a classic (driver/buggy)...and don't try this at home:

Thanks for the info. I think I will also get the buggy set up with foam tires too. Nice vintage RC10. I still have my original 87 Gold tub chasis
RC10.
