if you want to run truck tires you should have bought a truck buddy..a buggy will not do anything with truck tires on it...on another note...please stop making a new post for every question you have...you asked the same thing in your post about tires...give it a minute and someone will answer...thanks bud

No way to close a thread. Just in the future don't post a new one for every question you have.

Anyway, as for the tires it really can't be done easily. I mean you are correct that hub extenders would allow you to physically mount them, but the gearing will be way off and it won't handle well. I have to agree with mist467 on this one. If you wanted a truck you should have bought a truck.

rc_in_mexico: don't take that the wrong way. It's just a joke about another RCTECH user(dreaux).

Just because I have done this for fun. You can mount truggy tires on a buggy. I did so with the RC8B. I limited the steering and had no binding or rubbing issues other then a little on the body and wing (which can be removed). So as far as gearing, the diffs are the same on the B and T, the only difference is the center spur and clutch. It'll work, wont be the quickest thing out there, but you could put a 13t on it or something. So would it work, does with the AE, would it be practical... probably not...

I think tires with the 1/2 offset would work even better :P
