Default Foams

Who makes foam tires for a Traxxas Rustler? I need foams to race and can not find them anywhere.

Thanks

associated tires do not work I tried them. Traxxas has a different axle size.

Would it be possible to put associated axle carriers and axles on my Rustler so associated wheels will fit?

I put losi parts on the front of my rustler.Sorry about that it has been quite a while since I had the rustler.It wasn't an exact fit but I don't remember what was the problem but it can be done.If I remember I'll post it.

the problem is that rustler wheels are metric, ae is english units. you can easily make the rears fit, but the fronts are a different issue. i have some foams at home i am not using, i will compare those to the pede/rustler shafts and see what we can do to help you. i think i could pretty easily make you a new front axle that will work with rustler gear, but let you run ae tires.
oh wait, the rustler doesnt use wheels with bearing up front...i think there is a very easy fix..
you need to just drill the rim out with a 5mm drill bit.

The associated frounts are larger than traxxas and rears are smaller.

I thought about this today and I beleive you can use the outer a arm hinge pin from a nitro rustler and the axle carrier and axle from a xxx-t up front.I think yon have to drill out the a arms to use the larger pin on the outer hing point of the rustler a arm and also grind the a arm to alow the hub carrier to fit.It was pretty involved with modifying the a arm but no custom axle is required.
