Default Paddle tires for 1/8 buggy??

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes paddle tires for 1/8 buggies? I know that Proline makes them for the Truggies, will Truggy wheels fit on a buggy without any modifications? BTW, my buggy is the OFNA Ultra LX Comp.

Thanks in Advance!

I have not seen anyone make paddle tire for a buggy....Yes you can put truggy or MT tires and wheels on a buggy, but if you dont want to run hub extenders you will have to use 0 offset wheels like what comes stock on a ofna mutilater....

I think proine used to make a paddle tire for buggies but not anymore.
So check your local hobby shop's rack of tires and you might get lucky.

If not proline's badlands tire should do the trick.

Thanks for the great advice guys, the badland tires would do great I'm sure, but I have it in my head that I need real paddles. I will look for some truggy wheels with 0 offset. My friend has a monster truck who wants to have a show down at the beach, so paddles will be my secret weapon

I'm pretty sure the Pro-Line tire was called the Slingshot? I've seen them before, so I know they exist haha.

these are not exactly paddle tires, but still worth looking at:
