Default Slash questions

Hello all. A few days ago I picked up a Slash. I'm looking for new wheel/tire options as a first simple little change. I run mostly on fine gravel and pavement at the moment. There isnt much of a selection of slash tires and wheels so I was curious about the RPM revolver wheels. They are 2.2" but I don't know if they would work and if I should get all rears or fronts. Also would the Pro Line Switch m2 tires be acceptible for the surfaces I'm running on?

I do believe the hex's are the same sizes on the front AND rear. For bashing i'd say the stock wheels and tires are good. If your racing then thats a differant story(unless stock spec if not as the local fast guys what they reccomend). The RPM rims like to break and chip away I suggest staying with the stock rims, they are the best performer i've used.

Hope this helps

They work, but there is an offset diff. I run them on my Slash.

If you're trying to maintain something close to stock offset, run the fronts, the fronts keep the wheels pretty much under the fenders. The rears stick out a out farther (increase offset).
