Default Boa's on LPR wheels

I'm grabbing a set of boa clays and wanted to know if they will fit on LPR wheels without being modified. Or should I stick with maxx wheels. Also, are the foams that come with em any good or should get another set. Thanks in advance.

you'll have to do some trimming to get them to fit on the LPR wheels. I personally like the LPR, better handling. I think the stock white foams are pretty good.

Default Panther Boa's

Cut about 2mm above the bead on both sides. When gluing the tire to the wheel stick the flat end (What you just cut) of the bead down into the channel and glue that first. Do both sides. Then fold the tire over and glue the sidewall to the outer edge of the wheel. Do that to both sides! Then you have a nice completed tire!

Also I run the stock Foam Exclusively in my Panther tires! They are awesome! I personally stuff the whole foam in there but you can trim the outside edges if you want it a little more rounded!

Thanks man! Thats just what I needed! I just cut the first one and it fits perfect. It is a pain in the arse though thats for sure. Would you use a slower cure glue to get it in place better? I have always used the thinnest stuff so it would roll around the bead. The guy at the LHS said he likes the medium. I started to use it on some buggy switches and hated it! Maybe it would work better in this case.

Why don't you just get some Panther 38's?
You won't have trim them.

They don't make the Panther 38 in Boa's

Anyways. I use the thinnest Glue available as well (Kyosho Glue) Awesome stuff! Just make sure you have the rubber where you want it and don't mess up! haha
-Good luck!
