These come with 17mm hexes and a half inch offset making them a perfect fit for Traxxas Revo/T-Maxx/Summit, as well as other monster trucks like the Thunder Tiger MT-4 G3 and eMTA.

THE Duratrax Equalizer Pre-Mounted 8th Scale Buggy Tire Review

Duratrax Pre-Mounted Equalizer Tire Review
In the last 5 years there has been an explosion in the 8th scale buggy tire market. One of the more affordable choices comes from Duratrax, where they have a complete line of reasonably priced tires and pre-mounts. We’ve been bashing and thrashing two sets of Duratrax Equalizer Pre-Mounts (one in C3 (super soft) compound and one in C2 (soft) compound) for a few weeks now. Are they worth your cash to bash with? Come on, let’s find out…


Pro-Line Trenchers Pre-Mounted on Renegade Wheels
What is possibly the best tire you can put on your short course truck for bashing? Pro-Line Trencher X SC’s of course, and now they are available pre-mounted on black Renegade wheels.

The Trencher X’s and Renegade combo make not only a very scale looking combination, but also a great performer out in the dirt. With them now being pre-mounted they save you the time and frustration of the entire gluing process.

Pro-Line has Trencher X pre-mounts available to fit vehicles like the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4, the HPI Blitz, Associated SC10 4×4, Pro-Line ProTrac Slash, and Losi Ten SCTE. Part numbers are #1190-13 and #1190-18, and you can hit THIS link for more information. Street price is $35 per pair.

Pro-Line Big Blox Pre-Mounted M3
Pro-Line has announced that their Big Blox 8th scale buggy tires are now available all glued up and pre-mounted for your driving pleasure. The mounted Big Blox save you time and hassle by coming ready to bolt right up to your buggy, giving you more driving time. The pre-mounts are available in their popular M3 (soft) or M4 (super soft) compounds, and come mounted on white Velocity wheels. Part numbers are #9048-32 for M3, #9048-33 for M4, and both have a street price of right at $35 per pair.

Pro-Line Big BloxBig Blox are also now available in Pro-Line’s new long wearing X2 (Medium) and X3 (Soft) compounds. Big Blox are already known for their long wear characteristics, I would think that in X Compound you should be able to complete an hour long main and still have plenty of tread left. Part number for the X2 Big Blox’s is #9048-002, the X3′s are #9048-003, and both have a street price of around $22 per pair. Hit up the official Pro-Line Website for even more information.
