But those tires are for 3.7" LRP wheels w/ the channel bead. VTR is the buggy style bead.

They can always be found on flea bay.

Something like this is what you need.

The VTR wheels will fit your tires just fine.

Been glueing them for customers for months before AKa took over, but I understand If he didn't want to take a chance

Yes. Let me double check the Channels when I get to the shop tomorrow. Don't want to send you something that won't work, even for $10

The older style aka wheels should fit no problem, or a set of JConcepts rulux wheels will do as they are the 3.7 diameter and have the old channel style mounting area. Its the new style rims you won't be able to use: ProLine's VTR, JConcept elevated lip, and Aka's new evo truggy rim. They are all the 4.0 diameter and have totally different mounting beads areas.
