Default 1.7 semi tires on 1.7 stamped steelies.

Question. Do they work?

The build I'm planning is +-1/9th scale, making the 1.7" stamped steelies equal to 15" wheels and the 1.7" Long Hauls equal to 29" wheels. Which is about perfect for the stock look I'm going for with the project.

I know the inner diameter is the same but will the semi tires fit the non-semi 1.7" wheels?

Also, the X6 hard compound. How hard is it really? Using the Tamiya BFGs from the CC01 as a benchmark - harder or softer than those? I've heard they're built more like oldschool bias ply tires, which I'm actually okay with.

Thanks in advance!

I dont have an answer for you but I have often wondered the same thing. I hope somebody can chime in. I dont have any 1.7 wheels to try it with. But I have seen the tires sitting at my LHS and I'm really curious.

I guess I'll be finding out soon enough. Ordered a set of the semi wheels and the 1.7" steelies. I'll post results.
