yeah, they will fit just fine

Almost all 1/8 scale tires will fit 1/8 scale rims. The losi tires are slightly larger than the standard size rim.

I would not waste the money. The inside job m3 will only last like 20min and they will be bald. I run them on certain tracks, but the premounts are the cheapest way to go. They just don't last. Put some tires that will last on those nice wheels.

Panther Switch Clay compound will last the longest

Losi Pink Taper pins are very good too, just don't last as long as the switchs.
it depends on your track

They will, the rims will mainly only fit RC8's Proline rims and Jconcept Rims are typically for Associated. It's note the question of what tires will fit rims but what rims will fit your hubs that is the real question.

All 1/8 scale buggies that I've ever seen are 17mm hex hubs.
