Got the KM3s mounted up on a set of Injora wheels I had sitting around.

IDK if it was just me or what, but damn these tires where a bitch to get seated.

Anyways, they’re on. Slightly taller that the 1.7 TSL’s off the Marlin Crawler.

Just waiting on parts now.

The BFG’s look great on there! These are great little tires!

I have a set in G8 compound mounted on a set of cheapy wheels. I didn’t seem to have a problem mounting them. It must be the stickier Predator compound making them harder to mount.

hey, i hope you or someone else can help me out, or at least enlighten me?


i just got my first crawler, the element kit, and via recommendation also bought proline tires (hyrax). i'm curious what the dot on the side of the molding means? in real cars it's a balance point used for ease of mounting/balancing. my dots are yellow, yours are blue, so it makes me think perhaps it's a compound designator?

It's just the tire rubber compound designator - here is Pro-Line's explanation:

"There is a dot on the side of my tire. What does that mean?
The color dot is something that Pro-Line has added to the sidewall of all our tires. This identifies the compound of the tire. The color represents the material the tires are made out of. A color dot chart can be found on our website under the Application Guides and Charts section."

And here is a link to the pdf file showing all the compounds - notice, the crawler tires are not available in every compound, as they make many tires for racing as well:

Thanks Durok.

Been so busy that this project got put on the back burner.

But I have been messing with it.

Added an interior, mounted up new tires and wheels, trimmed up the rear of the body, and removed the factory tint from the windshield, drivers and passenger windows.








Instead of the Ironman decals, I think I will just removed the factory white and paint the body a different color.

Don’t have a red rig in the fleet at the moment.🤔

Looking good! Glad you removed the tint on the front. The frosted windows don’t do it for me personally. Nice improvement.

Interior looks great too, excited to see the color change.

Looks great dez!

It looks much better with the interior in it!

Looking forward to seeing the new paint job!

Thanks B! 👍🏼

I hated the “frosted” tint and with it’s removal, it was 100% necessary Got it to have an interior.

Just trying to find a color that POPS!🤣
