Default Monster truck tires on my 17mm hex hub

Hello,

I have a Tekno ET48.3 that I race and I'd like to put some old school looking Monster truck tires on it for fun. The Tekno has 17mm hexes, which doesn't seem compatible with any of the JConcepts Tribute wheels. JConcepts seems to use only the 12mm hexes. I've been googling around trying to find a way to put some old school looking monster truck tires on a 17mm hex, but I can't find a good solution. Some people talk about using adapters, other people talk about finding really old discontinued wheels on Ebay... There has to be a solution right?

Will either of these fit on the Jconcepts Tribute wheels as an adapter? I can't tell if they'll fit or not, as they are a different brand.

There are a lot of "monster truck" tires out there for 17mm hexes, but they don't look like old school monster truck tires. I'm looking for something with the more old school wheel to tire ratio.


Edit: Someone told me that these tires will get torn to shreads on an 1/8 scale with my motor on 4s lipo. I guess these tires are meant for less power and torque. I wish the description of the tires/wheels would mention that.
