Default tirres to big??? help fast please.

hey, i have a new nitro ruslter and the tires wore out fast. so i asked for help on what tires to get. the showed me some options one was revo tires. so i got those and i think it might be a drag on the motor and might heat it up. I'm new do you think i should exchange them for other tires. or do you think I'm worrying to much? and just keep these

heres the link.

the only way you should run those is if you gear the truck way down....i myself would get the proper size tire, but just a higher quality one....just wondering have you been doing alot of pavement driving??? if so i would look into a on road tire like the proline road rage....

You would want a larger spur and or smaller pinion to balance out the larger tires. A smaller spur gear would just make the problem worse. Not to mention larger tires will raise you CG and put added stress on your suspension.

I have to agree with Jason. Spend the money on at least one set of high quality, proper size tires and wheels.

For a nitro Rustler I would'nt go any bigger than 2.2 in., i'm with the other guys the proline tires are the best. The reasoning on the tires is yes you could go bigger but if you do really big jumps with the big tires you will not bottom out and all that stress will go to your towers and you will break things. For a good tire selection tower is good, just type in 2.2 for a search
