Default reviving rc tires

I have a Rustler VXL and the tires are completely bald. Is there any possible way of saving the tires?

No not really....

Once the nubs or tread is gone that's about it.... You might be able to save the rims by soaking them in acetone or boiling in water depending on the type.

There are different types of tires you can buy depending on what you are driving on (street tires vs. off-road). Maybe a couple of sets if you are running both.. just dont use your off-road tires for street and they should last a lot longer.

Good luck!
