Has anyone tried these out yet on their Slash?

I think those would cause traction rolls.

Can you say Monster Beetle tires? Seriously. Yeah, I'm showing my age, but those are SOOOO MB tires.

Those would not fit the slash rims.Slash uses 1.9 iam pretty sure.If you look at some of the rock crawling sites you could find diff 1.9 tires to fit the slash rims.But those tire are for sure the MB tires.Eve if you did get them to work there are hard as a rock

If you have to ask, I'd suggest you're in over your head in this hobby.

Get the New Era adapters. They basically fit over the axle pin and allow you to use 8th buggy tires. It'd be pretty cool to see what a Slash looks like with spoke rims, but surely dish would be better.

Even if you could get them mounted I doubt they would work under the body. Maybe if you extended the arms to move the tires outside, but even the shorter stock tires rub the body so those would probably not even turn.

Buggy tires are actually the same size and width of the Slash tires - so they will work.

According to the description, those are about 1/2" taller than the stock Slash tires. Might not seem like much, but given that the stock tires rub the body it's a problem.

Those actually came stock on the Traxxas Sledgehammer, but yes they look like Monster Beetle tires.

Miller - Not those ugly tires above. I lined up a pair of Chrime Fighters M3s mounted on proline rims with one of my slash wheels. They are the same height and width. With those adapters you can use all sorts of tires/rim combos for the outdoor tracks that have some loose soil.
