Default Tyre Ballooning Problem

Ive got some Dirt Hawgs, a few days old now on my B4, trouble is, i didn't glue the inside middle of the tyres, i glued around the edge of the rim, the tyres are ballooning quite a lot with a 17x2T brushed motor in it =/
Haven't got a video of it yet, but it is quite bad.
My plan is to get a 6.5T brushless motor, wouldn't this just make the tyres blow or rip off?
Would i have to remove the glue and glue the middle of it again?

Are you racing or bashing? The tires stretch that way from excessive rpm. An old school trick is to apply a layer of duct tape to the inside of the tire. Basically turning it into a belted tire. Just one layer will do. Of course this means you would need to dismount the tire. Hope this helps.

i thought that was natural and perfectly fine? i guess you get more traction if you don't have so much ballooning....

thanks for replying guys, sprayd, i will probably just wait until the tyres do rip off, if they do, then do the "duct tape" method.

Thanks for the info.
