    I've tried proline and the foam inserts keep breaking apart. I've drilled hole in the rims and in the tire and keep having the same problem. Have you tried the src tires that are belted.

    I buy my proline tires not mounted then use gorilla duct tape. I turn them inside out tape them then glue them myself. Really holds my tires from ripping apart.

    I seen this on YouTube does it help with the tires ballooning up any? Like does it lessen that any? I've been thinking about belted tires.

    For me taping up the tires only moved back when the tires started ballooning. It was still a problem for me getti g up to top speed. The tape also blew out at 3/4 throttle and cost me my stock body. The truck flipped over at speed. Next tires ima try tapping with gorrila glue and rubber glue. The belted tires are ok on stock motor and esc. I haven't done any speed runs on the belted tires yet. I bent my driverside cvd and waiting for new ones to come in to fully test them.
