Those tires should be good. Also, look at Losi's Smasher tires, part number A-7680R. Losi's foam inserts and rubber compounds are usually good for long life and good grip.

They are 2.2 tires, and not really much taller than a step pin or other big 1/10th scale tire. It won't change the truck from stock stadium truck to Stampede height, that's for sure.

NO!!! Im not that would ruin the whole LOSI XXX NT IMAGE!!
I got a pair of fronts (silver) and they were premounted on the yellow dish wheels !! Of course they dont match the rear chrome dish!!!

But they seem to be quite smaller than the factory tires.. Has anyone ever noticed this???

What tires did you get? I think I remember the RTR tires being kinda tall.

Like I said, the tires I linked a picture to aren't really any bigger. Probably no bigger than the tires that came with your truck.

It won't change anything too much for you to worry about it. Just drive your truck and have fun!

Anyone?
So my truck is running perfect until i think the correct word is crank shaft works its way lose and causing the truck slip bad then stalls. I see that the shaft has come lose so I take the pinion gear and clutch out....Ect.... and screw the end back on with lock tight....now it does nothing but slip wont move one inch just revs then stalls...Checked the clutch switched it out same thing......my starter box won't turn over the motor now...........what gives anyone............Thanks

I say take it to your LHS and have them look at it or have a friend look at it. Your clutch nut may have come loose or quite a few other possibilities.
