Sometimes you dont use that piece. I think those are for slash types rims.

best way to find out.. put the foams on the wheels. if there is a big spot (like a spot the size of the extra foam.) then they go on.. from what i remember tho on the splt six protrac.. I dont think they need it tho

You dont need them for Proline wheels , they were made for stock Traxxas wheels .

That's not a dumb question. Some wheels are flat all the way across including all after market wheels. Some like original traxass slash and Kyosho stock wheels are wide on the outside and skinny on the inside (they have an angled transition about halfway across the wheel. The extra foam piece fills in that skinny part. Suggest that any aftermarket tires you get that you also get after market wheels that are flat all the way across and do not need the foam piece.

If you glue them together they work well as a coozie, nice snug fit on a 12oz can.
