One of the more exciting parts of building any RC car or truck is, installing a new set of tires and rims. One the Axial Yeti I wanted something that not only handles well in most of the terrain that I will be running it on, but also looks insanely badass on the truck!
Now Pro-Line Racing came out with a larger version of their famous Original Super Swamper Tires, the 2.2” TSL SX Super Swamper XL Tire that is a complete design replication from Interco Tire Corporation. The Tire dimensions are as follows – 5.8″ height and 2.25″ Width. Witch is just slightly larger than its original Interco 2.2” Swamper Tire.

Now I decided to install these new Super Swamper Tires on to a set of Gear Head RC 2.2 Lightweight U4 Race Wheels. Wile these rims are a very simple wheel design. It dose allow for different offsets just by rotating the wheel in the opposite direction. Now these wheels are NOT beadlock, so a little light sanding is recommended to help the tires adhere to the aluminum rim better.

Also please note…If you are going to use the Gear head aluminum rims, you will have to use gear head wheel hubs. Unfortunately they designed their screw spacing to be different then that of the vanquish hubs.
I hope you all enjoyed and are getting more and more excited to see this rig come to life! stick around we have a lot more to do to this before it heads out for its maiden voyage!
