OK Don't know what type of feedback I'll get on this and don't know if it's a stupid idea but I've got 6 sets of TMAXX wheels/tires (on and off road) and I'm looking to run them on my Talion V3 and can't seem to find a 17 to 14mm adapter....just don't want these tires to go to waste.....any ideas???

I have to use different size metric hardware for both my HPI and my Tekno. I’m not sure exactly what size for Arrma....but you remove the set screw in the axle...and use a metric bolt with lock washer.
Which Truck are yo looking to adapt to? My son has a Senton. I can test fit and check on that

I have a typhon and trophy flux buggy. Might do it to both. Will this hold up to 6s well?

I don’t think you’ll have any problems with the hexes or aluminum wheels on 6s. Just tire and foam choice will be the concern. For 6s I’d find a tire that you can do the fishing line strapping trick on.

14mm hex's don't hold up nearly as well in high torque applications as 17mm. I switched all my nitro MT's to 17mm once I started running higher power engines like the LRP28 and started rounding out wheel hexes. Pretty much any 1/8th brushless truck is going to have gobs more torque than any nitro engine. I'm guessing your going to have to dial the punch down a lot and be easy on the throttle to run 14mm.

I also have a set of 17mm beadlocks for ultimate durability

I ordered the 12mm hex...gonna try them out. I want to run 2.8 or 3.8 on my typhon but finding conflicting answers on what(if any) adjustments or parts I will need for them to fit. Also wanting to go with some nice beadlocks that don’t cost a fortune. Any suggestions?
