This is a pack of two Traxxas Talon Rear Tires, premounted on All Star wheels. The Traxxas 2.8" Talon tires are the most versatile all-terrain tires available for your Traxxas model. The directional long-wear tread pattern provides extended tire life, while providing exceptional traction on most any surface. The 2.8" Talon integrates a soft rubber compound, large foam inserts, and a go-anywhere design that allows it to excel on asphalt as well as rocks, grass, dirt, or any other surface. The tapered tread design where the treads meet the sidewall enables the tire to slide on asphalt, to help avoid unwanted traction rolls. Increase the ride height and ground clearance of any Traxxas stadium truck by adding a set 2.8" Talon tires.*
Traxxas’ 2.8" All-Star and Twin-Spoke wheels redefine looks and convention by combining structural strength and futuristic stylings. The state-of-the-art design features a brilliant mirror-chrome face. The horizontal bead helps grab the tire, reducing the stress placed on the glue joint by tire expansion.
*NOTE: When using 2.8" Talon tires on the electric Rustler use a pinion gear that is 4-5 teeth smaller than stock

The 1st set I bought, the left rear tire couldn't take the torque and blew the foam out through the side wall, and the right side tire wall started to crack up.
The 2nd set.. I just got done putting them on the car, took it out on pavment and the glue on side walls on both tires came unglued.
The 3rd set.. I was barely going about 30mph and went through a puddle and left rear tire cracked itself open and half the foam was coming out through it. People I know that this is a hobby, but come'on Traxxas stop ripping people off and make something that is worth 23-30 bucks a set.
I hope this helps all of you RC drivers.
