Default Widest tire to fit on a Nitro 4-Tec?...

Hey guys, I was wondering what the widest tire I could run on the rear/front of my Traxxas Nitro 4-Tec? I don't mind doing some modification to make wider tires fit, but I really want to run wider ones. Please keep in mind I need rubber tires and wheels, not foam!

uhm .. most rubber race tires that I have seen only come in one width .. there might be some wider ones out there .. but if there are I havent seen them .. post if you do find any I know a 4tec will take 28mm foams all around .. so look for something in that width I think regular racing rubber tires are in the 24 or 25 mm wide area ... but like I said .. if you find em .. post where you did find em and how well they work ..

have fun racing everyone

All of the current racing compounds for rubber come in 24mm width. There are a number of 26mm tires to choose, but they aren't well suited for racing. There used to be wider tires and rims available and you might be able to find some on Ebay or old stock at your LHS. If you just want the wider look, you can use the 26mm tires and use the 2mm hex spacers that come with HPI rims to make the wheels stick out more. You might also be able to find some 26mm rims with a 2mm offset for even more track width. It really depends on why you are looking for the wider tires.
