Default Please help!!! Foam tire mystery

I'm new to drag racing RC cars and I bought a set of foam tires, it looks like there is a 4 bolt pattern setup , how does that work what I have 12 mm hex?? Also the front rims just have one single big hole , I don't think my axle is that big... Am I missing something LOL? Please help thank you so much

Sounds like you bought foam tires for a 10th scale pan car.

A pan car huh?! Not even sure what that is, I've got a 2-wheel drive Rustler is there any way for me to convert my axles to accept those rims? Or do they make an adapter of some sort

I don't believe any adapters exist for what you need. The pic below is of an Associated RC10L3 pan car. There are also 12th scale pan cars.

Actually think I found something on eBay, it's a four-bolt to 12 mm hex. Thanks for filling me in on the pan car thing LMAO, that sent me in the right direction!

In the future, there's a company called "gone bananas racing skinz" that makes foam tires for just about everything. And if he doesn't make them, send him wheels and he will custom make them! Real cool guy too, had the pleasure of meeting him a couple years back.
