Mike, yes they fit great. Although next time I'll not get proline tires. They are kinda a pain to get ahold of.
@siblues I would go with the assumption that they are std losi size or they are baja 5t front size (which is the same size)

There are two examples that I like and the second one is Bja 5t fronts with the proline trenchers and they are a tiny bit taller than the originals or atleast they look to be taller in the video.

They are in fact a tiny bit smaller. This is the set up I used to run. It's not really noticed unless you sit your tire/ wheel combo next to each other. I'll look up the tire size difference and post it up.

They look taller but they are thinner right or am i mistaken maybe if they are thinner that would make them appear to be taller.The wheels play a huge role in how tall or wide the tire/wheel combo look

Ok so here's a chart for the dbxl and the 5ive t

The baja 5t front side is 190x60 or 190x70mm

The trenchers according to DDM

Now as fat as I know the baja 5b rear are the largest (of the common rc) at 195x80mm.
And then we have wheel sizes. Which (again as far as I know) are just 3 sizes based off of the losi, baja front and rear.(listed skinny to wide) although once toi toss in the aftermarket stuff I assume you'll have some more width and offset choices as well.
So for all intensive purposes the baja 5b rear are the closest to factory dbxl in height. Everything else is a tad smaller. They all (imo) look good though. Not out of place at all.

I like the size of these and also I think they look much better than what comes on the truck originally

They are Hostile ATX in that picture. You can pick up cheap mad Max clones of them now but they aren't very good. I tried them on my DBXL (the ATX, not the clones) and are probably only any use if you drive a mix of tarmac and gravel. They are terrible on grass and the grip roll is atrocious. On wet grass you may as well use slicks. Those big knobbly tyres by surface area don't offer any more grip, often less except in the direction you don't want to be going in.

What surface will you run on? If you're not bothered about performance in terms of side wall, grip roll etc. get some cheap used Losi Nomads off eBay, either with stock 5ive wheels and foams or stick some Silverback wheels on them. They all look great on a DBXL and last for ages. They'll work on any surface.

Thanks for the great advice and the tread pattern is nice but the size and wheel choice are what I really like.The tires can be swapped for something with better traction.I don't have many places to drive it around by me.The places I usually find are mostly grass or clay/sand mix.Asphalt is always an option too.

I am still hunting down a set that I like.I was wondering are all the beadlock rings the same size and bolt spacing so long as the wheels are the same size?I mean if I purchase a set of wheels for a Baja will the oem beadlock rings on the DBXL work on the new wheels?

Well the wheels I am interested in are available for both but they don't come with the beadlock rings and that is why I was asking if all the beadlock rings are interchangeable?
