Light weight Tundra Tires?

PostPosted: Sun Nov 29, 2020 3:56 pm

Doing a update to my Speedy Bee. Bigger engine Saito 30, new LiFe batt and fuel tank......

I am looking to replace the original Trexler wheels with something that is maintenance free. Needing a wheel 3.25 to 3.50" and light weight. Thinking something off one of the late model electric ARFs would work but can't find dimensions in the replacement parts lists.

Any suggestions?

Par,
Check Motion RC, I got some 6" for my Sr Telemaster and they are pretty light.
They have all sizes.

I used .40 size Hangar 9 cub wheels on mine years ago. Just checked, they are no longer available, but there are lots of ARF wheels, but as you stated, it’s difficult since sizes are listed on replacement parts...
