Default Single Imex Dualie on a TXT

I've searched, I've browsed. I can't come up with a solid conclusion.

What's it take to put a single dualie on a TXT?
Stock narrowed wheel?
Different wheel and an adapter?

you could cut the stock rim and take out enough of the middle then glue it back.

Are those tires too narrow though? I mean I just don't see them giving a large enough area to apply traction. And are they soft enough or are they pretty stiff?

Traction is the reason for running those, because they are a smaller contact area that allows for more weight to be placed on them.

So did it work? or did you give up?

I didn't give up...yet.

I'm still shaking out the bugs of a good servo mount. I started with plastic to see how it would work, but that broke,
then I saw the price of aluminum, so I made another plastic one, and that broke.
Then I bought aluminum, and made one, but that was a 4 day process, I couldn't get to the drill press.
So, now I have a truck that runs, and will be working on the rear steer.
Then since it seems like a dualie will go on a stock narrowed wheel (right?) all I need to do is find a set.

But the BFT route is quite appealing...

I recently sold a set of IMEX Clod dually rims and tyres. I wouldn't have thought those tyres would be much good for crawling (or much else actually) because they are very hard compound. I ran them on a modified Clod for a while but in the end they were used for display only. They wouldn't compress at all and are slightly rounded in profile. They used to just spin on any surface other than thick mud. The stock Clod tyres were much softer.

I'm not sure if IMEX did different compounds of those tyres either.

It may be better to narrow a set of softer compound tyres?

Actually that's what i did, I narrowed the stock TXT tires. They still stink though.
