Default New Motors

I have on order 2 55t Lathe motors for my clod, the question that I have will these motors slow the truck down in speed, but make it have the torque? And also, I have a set of clod tires and rims, and also monster pirate tires on rims with adapters for the clod, I am looking for something smaller, if anyone has anything, let me know, I just don't want the tires, I think they are too big, looking for some masher 2000 or something different. Thanks

What do you mean smaller? Like 2.2 small or what? Masher 2000 are excellent tires, very soft.

For the maximizer beadlocks will I need to buy some kind of adapter or something to make them fit the clod axle, or what will i need to do? I have the order ready to pay for except for the tires they are out of stock, but I am getting the wheels (black), just don't know what else I would need. Like I said I already have these one adapters for the monster pirate wheels, so I don't know what size that is I don't know what else I need. Thanks

Hey I got the K rock tires, and the maximizer beadlocks they were nice so i got them, I have two problems though, one is I can't get the screws to go into the faceplate of the wheel to screw into the other piece any ideas, and two is since i have these wheels, they sit too close to my body and hit the bottom link allowing it not to turn, any ideas on either of these will help, my adapters shall be here tomorrow or so. Thanks
