Default Best Tires For E-Revo Brushless?

Get massive tire flare with originals... on 6S

Off road of course.

Which should I buy?

Are there any that "clamp on" the tires to the rims?



Also Rear drives shafts are starting to wear already as the rear drive cups have way to much play in them, have to tighten after each run or modway through... the fronts are no where near as bad.

You can go with a set of beadlocks. You might also want to upgrade to 23mm hex if youre going to buy new wheels. The 23mm hex wheels are stronger and dont round out as easy as 14mm or 17mm. For tires proline makes some good ones. Check out the mashers, moabs, and trenchers. Most tires can balloon, some people use heavy tape like duct tape or gorilla tape on the inside of the tire to help reduce the ballooning effect. I've never personally tried it though.

I dont think beadlocks will withstand the torque and speed of your Revo, especially on 6S.
Trenchers can be found here tho....

The best beadlocks that i've found and seem to hold up to 6s are the Maxmizers...as for all around good basher tire I use Mashers with a double wrap of Gorilla tape inside from wall to wall. I've been running all summer and still holding on 6s with my ERBE no issues....Just control the throttle finger. If your doing wheelies at 45mph your going to rip the tires from the beadlocks....roll the throttle..dont hammer...


As for your selection above..... I feel a must have....good choice


Cheers

Taping the tires is the best way to reduce ballooning.

What type of gearing are you running? Stock?

Keep an eye on your temps, too. 6s off-road is out there on the edge of the limits if you're running the castle/mamba setup.

Bead locks are only good on slower cars, anything faster than 25 will have problems with beads popping out.



I'd suggest wagon wheels. No ballooning at all.

Thank you ALL for your help, realy.

Am definatly going to try the gorilla tape.

Oh, La TuFu... i am running stock gearing. The motor does get hot and the mamba fan on the ESC turns on a lot.
