Default Yeti Score Trophy Truck Rims & Tires on the Bomber?

Is anyone running the 2.2 Yeti Trophy Truck rims & BFG tires on the Bomber?...if thats even possible? any pics?

I have a set of Wraith Spawn Method rims & Ripsaw tires for the slower crawling etc but I am looking into a slightly lower profile / smaller OD tire to lower the COG for the more high speed fun?

The Yeti trophy truck BFG tires are 4.72" / 120mm tall which would be ideal to lower it a bit & still have enough clearance

I don't know why his build thread disappeared, but google image search "MACFAB Bomber" and you'll still find pics of his hand fabricated "bomber" on Yeti TT tires/wheels.

Im curious to know if it is possible to simply fit the smaller OD Yeti BFG tires straight on to my Wraith Spawn Method rims?

These are the Yeti TT tires I want to run>
Axial Racing - 2.2 3.0 BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR2 Tires 42mm - R35 Compound (2pcs)

My Wraith Method rims>
Axial Racing - 2.2 Method Beadlock Wheels - IFD

& these are the Yeti trophy truck rims that seem to be a different size on the inside & outside bead??? + these rims require the tire to be glued on according to the instructions, much prefer the simple beadlock setup on the rims I already have>

Sadly you car not going to get them to fit, i tried with some toy grade tires that are that size and they didnt work. That wheel size is the short course truck size (gives more scale look with 2.2 outer bead) you might be able to find beadlocks but not very likely races don't want extra weight. And would be pretty good for the faster stuff, I'd just buy some cheap rim to glue them on and have fun

Proline makes 2.2/3.0 beadlocks (Split-six they are called).

Did you check the links I posted? the tire I mentioned is still a 2.2 tire but it just has a smaller OD @ 120mm vs the stock 138mm OD Bomber tire, without physically having them to try out though im only going by the specs which says they suit a 2.2 rim just the same

Point is I dont want to buy other rims I have pretty well brand new Axial Wraith Spawn Method Beadlock rims that will work perfectly fine for what I want, basically looking at smaller ID tire options without having to go down to 1.9 rims, dont see the need to when you could simply run a lower profile tire

This is another example, Proline BF Goodrich KR2 with an even lower profile or OD @ 4.30" / 109mm tall, getting closer to a 1.9 size tyre but it suits a 2.2 rim>

So the short course rims & tires have 2 different sized beads on the rim & tyre? never owned one so I dont have a clue, the SC rims & tires mention 2.2" & 3.0" so im guessing the smaller face of the rim is the typical size & the other inside part of each rim & tyre has a larger bead section?

Terrible setup if it is, must be a reason for it but I will stick to the common size 2.2 only size rims I have

& as mentioned the Axial 120mm OD tire I mentioned only lists 2.2 so it should fit my rims?

OH my bad they do mention 2.2 / 3.0 bead....scrap that idea then unless I fit the rims also>

Been looking at lots of different tires & its getting late here!

Guess I will have to stick with the stock size or run 1.9 rims, not a fan of the SC style rims with the different sized inner & outer bead setup

If you want to run a Trophy truck-style tire on a 2.2 beadlock wheel, check these out - 4.33" tall:

SCORE tires will work fine, but you'll have to run the rear offset on all 4 corners, which will widen your track just a bit. You can also stretch 1.9 BFGs onto your 2.2 and accomplish the same thing (4-3/4" od tires) If you need the low tire pressure effect, do the 1.9s, short course program resembles 30 psi because of the small foams. So in closing, if you intend to be hauling the mail on trails rather than crawling, run the SCORES.

The reasons are 2.2 outer bead gives a scale look while the rest of the rim and wheel give a buggy style wheel handling. Trying running a 2.2 tire are more than crawler speeds and your rc will wobble all over the place child wearing their father's shoes

Thanks for the help guys, just trying to sort out all the details, already bought a RTR Bomber for my son & we have done a few upgrades on it to make it handle better already

I found a brand new cage & the Wraith wheels & tires to start a new build & I want a few different tire options to try out



Looks like this now, waiting on lots of goodies to complete the build

Yup. This, and more room for hubs and steering stuff inside a 3.0 wheel.

I think you've worked out you can't fit the TT tyres on the 2.2 wheels but there should be zero reasons mechanically why you can't fit the TT wheel/tyre package to the RR10.
You may have to tinker with the hub spacers to get clearance as I think the TT wheels have a deeper back space than the RR10 2.2 wheels.
But otherwise hex size, stub axle & hub spacers should all be interchangeable.

Ah well if I happen to find a set of Yeti Score rims & tires cheap I will try them out

Wouldnt mind trying out the RC 4WD tires also but I think they would be a little bit too small, anyone have some pics of these fitted?
Might be OK for an indoor pavement type track setup?

The SCT tyres shouldn't look too bad, the Yeti TT tyres at 4.72" are some of the tallest 2.2/3.0 , most are only 4.3"
1.9 size wheel & tyres (similar size as you looking at) look perfectly fine on both the RR10 & Wraith, though they really can do with a slight shortening of the wheelbase & a narrower axle to bring the proportions back.
