Default Need tires and wheel advice

I have been reading a lot about tires and wheel and that itís not recommended to to go to heavy for a combo of tires and wheels as it puts to much stress on the electronics and driveline

Original tires and wheel is 374 grams So what do people recommend for tires and wheels beside the stock ones ?

I have been thinking about
https://pitbullrc.com/products/pb9009zdk As they are about 284grams

And for wheels https://store.rc4wd.com/RC4WD-Dick-C...ls_p_4237.html as they are 274grams

For a total of 578 grams for wheel and tires thatís 204grams more than stock

Pit bulls are super! Dick cepeks are a bit heavier than stock but not too bad. This combo is far from alloy beadlocks&mudslingers combo that is like 900g per tire/wheel/foam in one corner....

I’ve tried quite a many setups, and I still like the stock KIT wheel&tire combo with CI foams.
The first set I had with stock foams has cracked all 5 wheels....with CI foams the wheels don’t hit the ground anymore when landing and haven’t really had any problems with them since even though my yxl is 20lbs.

Great answer and a cheap one aswell

But I would have to remove the tires from the wheels and have never done this.
I can see there are several methods to do it

Acetone
Bake them in the oven
Boil in water
Heat gun

But which one is the correct one if I wanna reuse tires and wheels ?

Also I can see the stock kit tires are falken wildpeak

While I have the RTR BFGoodrich Krawler tires

Any recommendations on the difference ?

Well ordered 3 pairs of CI foams as I have 3 pairs of stock tires and wheels.

And if boiling or acetone ruins the tires and rims I gues I’ll just have to buy something new

Anyone out there know of a belted 3.8 set of tires and wheels that are not low profile? I’m looking everywhere. Trying to stay lower weight from stock or at least equal to. The src terrain crushers look decent but I’d like more sidewall. It seems tough to find something. By the way I’m just not good at gluing. I got it done on my kit stock set, but it was a messy fiasco. I spent a good amount of time on prep so hopefully they hold up. Pretty much any finishing type work doesn’t agree with me. I’m a mechanical guy.

I don't think there's anything belted until 1/5 tires aside from the SRC tires. I would just look into the O-ring or fishing line method as a work around for now.

Thanks for the reply. Yea, I did the gorilla tape method. 2 wraps before assembling the tires. Iím just anticipating them coming unglued and was looking for a factory glued set already with reinforcement
