This is a set of four high performance white pre-mounted Nubz tires from HPI Racing, along with a set of four 17mm universal axles for the HPI Savage. This conversion kit includes not only a complete set of tires for your Savage truck, but the included high strength steel 17mm universal axles allow you to bolt these directly to any Savage. The axles come with cool purple anodized aluminum hex nuts. These axles are high grade steel built to handle extreme driving conditions. Comes with everything needed to upgrade one truck, including four axles/nuts, four universal joint shafts and four Nubz tires on 17mm hex wheels.

The Nubz tires feature an innovative narrow design for accurate steering response and quick acceleration on the track. The high performance rubber compound is soft and sticky, optimized for high grip on dirt tracks. The rounded contour allows consistent traction on uneven surfaces, high grip in the corners, and low resistance on straightaways. The race-tested Nubz tread pattern and soft compound rubber provide superior grip on dirt surfaces for fast lap times. Internal tire ribs allow the use of soft compounds while adding strength to the tire for extreme durability and helping avoid deformation at high speeds. The included precision molded inserts fit perfectly inside the tires, providing accurate support. No trimming necessary!

Specially designed dish wheels have a horizontal wheel groove which isolates the glue joint from centrifugal force, increasing the life of the glue for less tire and wheel separation. Oversized 17mm hex design strenghtens the hub/wheel connection to prevent stripped wheels with powerful engines and during extreme driving. The wheel itself is molded from high strength nylon, and the lightweight Race-Fit dish design delivers sleek aerodynamics and protection from dirt. The overall weight of the mounted Nubz tires is 35% lighter than the stock Savage wheel and tire, delivering faster lap times and improved handling.

Sold in pairs, the Nubz tires mounted and glued on dish wheels. Three different wheel colors are available: white, black and yellow. Nubz tires fit truggies and buggies that use 17mm hex hubs, and will fit the Savage when used with HPI 17mm Hex Hub Conversion Set or HPI Universal Joints with 17mm hex hubs.

HPI White Nubz Conversion Set w/17mm Universal Axles (4)
Not suitable for Savage Flux, these rely on the old style Dog Bones not the upgraded heavy dutys, so they will have a LOT of play when attached to the Flux diff outdrives.

Suitable for "All Savage Trucks" is misleading, these are useless for the Flux or the XL

Tyres aren't too bad though.
