You wont the atleast 2 holes in center of the tires to let dirt out and water just take a pair of scissors and and just cut 2 small holes in the tire one on oneside and one on the other just try to make them about evenly as you can and you should be good to go we use a leather hole puncher if you have one of those they work really good.

AKA premounts should have holes punched in the tire out of the package. All of mine have anyway.

If they don't, you can still use a leather punch, you will just have to sort of "pinch" the tire and punch it.

To make a hole with a leather punch, pinch the tires and cut out a half circle on the edge you made with the pinch. After you are done you end up with a whole circle

Or a 1/4" drill bit..

All of my AKA premounts have come with holes already punched also.. They can be easy to over look..

just put 2 holes in one tire and then realized it already had hole in it.


Does these holes spread and tear the tire by anychance? Seems like the ones i made will just spread, tear and get bigger.

The rubber of RC tires is very elastic, I doubt it will get bigger. Besides, it is too late now, so you might as well run them..

I once forgot to put holes before mounting so I used a side-cutter and made some ugly as$ looking holes and they did not rip or become larger.

Use a body reamer or the tip of a hot soldering iron to make a neater hole.

Back to AKA's premounts, they probably have one hole only and not easy to notice it if you don't look hard enough...
