    :scooter: I need some:helpsmilie: on getting some tire's for the FG ST Beadlock rim's. I got them for my FG MT5 because of the offset, they stick out farther than the stock one's so I can have a wider wheel base . "Less Roll Over's" The rim's are the same hight as the MT ones, but not as wide. The stock FG ST tire's don't have the traction or hight I want or need! Thanks for any :helpsmilie: FGSTBeadlock.jpg

    The only thing that fits right now are the Stadium Truck tries. Not a good choice for traction. Maybe after the FG Bjaa comes out, they'll have different tires.

    I too was going to ask what kind of tire/rim options the FG MT had as well.

    I have one set of each, and Rob is right, the ST tires are not that great for traction. But they do hold up nice with those beadlocks, and the MT rims, are wicked HEAVY...

    i belive that only the stock fg stadium tires are made for the rims. if u want somthing about the same size and offest get some hormann jumbos and leopard wheels with the extention rings.

    No paddles yet for FG rims. But there will be an upgrade for mounting Baja tires on aluminum square drive rims in a few months. Those Marders will look cool with paddles and razors!!!!!!

    That look sweet.
    After seeing that, I now want to change my MT to a Stadium Truck.
    Where do you get the 80mm Hormann tyres from? I've searched the web and can't find em!!!!!

    Edit.
    Found them here: http://www.rc-car-online-shop.de/lshop,showdetail,18380,e,1182128946-20578,reifen.off_road.buggyreifen.reifen_buggy_gb,offroad_0008,,Tshowrub--reifen.off_road.buggyreifen.reifen_buggy_gb,.htm are these the same as these tyres http://www.rc-car-online-shop.de/lshop,showdetail,18380,e,1182127929-19200,reifen.off_road.monsterreifen,offroad_0004,,Tshowrub--reifen.off_road.monsterreifen,.htm

    I found some on Ebay. They look like baja 5B wheels but have the square hole in the back and bolt right on the FG Monsters. They will however set you back $100.00 for a pair but I have to say that I got a pair and they work great in Sand and mud. Just thought I would give my 2 cents
