Traxxas Aluminum Wheels, Red-Anodized
Machined Aluminum Ball Bearing Wheels with Rubber Tires: Traxxas now offers an impressive set of red and blue-anodized machined aluminum wheelie bar wheels with rubber tires. The precision 6061-T6 aluminum wheels feature a stunning anodized finish and they ride on rubber-sealed 5x8mm ball bearings. For controllable and seemingly never-ending wheelies, Traxxas developed a durable, soft compound rubber tire that reduces side-to-side movement for stable, consistent wheelies. The rubber tires are available separately and they also install on the stock nylon wheels.

Traxxas was started in 1986 with an idea for what was at that time an entirely new concept for a fully assembled, hobby-class R/C car. This new car would have all the same benefits of a hobby-class kit such as replaceable parts, hop-ups, and a high-quality component radio system, however it would be fully assembled with a colorful body, right out of the box. Traxxas coined the term "Ready-To-Run" (RTR) to describe this new class. Since a fully assembled, ready-to-run car would appeal to the entry-level beginner, a toll-free customer support line was set up from day one to service an entirely new category of hobby consumer. At first, acceptance of the RTR concept was slow because traditional R/C kits had always been unassembled. Once people realized that a Traxxas RTR had the same performance and quality as the traditional R/C kits, only that they didn't have to build it, the ready-to-run Cat was a runaway hit! A kit version would still be offered for those who still wanted to have the building experience.
