    Question replacement for summit tires

    i have almost worn down my original traxxas canyon at tires, and i was wondering if anyone knows if i could mount up a set of rear proline trenchers for a baja 5t.

    Id go with the big joes from proline or the RC4WD 40 series Rock crushers
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    You would have to get the 1/5 scale wheels as well. In order to get them to fit, you need 24mm hexes.

    What kind of terrain are you running on, that would make a difference in my choice

    I went with the Proline Trencher 40 series mounted on Tech5 wheels. Much better basher tire, but the wheels narrowed my overall track by 1 inch. My next set will be Trencher X on Desperado wheels. Both are direct 17mm hex bolt ons

    That is what i got for mine was your last mentioned. The trencher x bolt on exact. I like them but with anything.g bigger it is harder on the bearings and all that gear. Mine after a short run makes the hex hubs loose on the spindle where the screw goes through and they wiggle a bit. I really liked the canyon tires for rocks and crawling though. I even used super marine goop to patch them up the other day and plugged rim holes so i don't get water in. They are ready for mud now!! :-)
    the trencher x is alot stiffer tire too. I am wondering how big The tires are on the losi monster truck are?? They look grabby. I looked at some air filled ones before looked awesome but they didn't make them or the tires that they came with in summit size.
