    Stock Rustler Tires

    How long did it take you to burn through your stock Nitro Rustler tires? It took me an hour on hot pavement!

    About 3 weeks and 10 tanks after break-in.(of course I mostly only drive in our grass fields.) Then I bought dirt paws.

    they lasted break in lol. They are poor quality, but if you looks at any other stock tires on any car its pretty much the same

    Eman a suv . that stinks. I was breaking in my nitro rustler in a mall parking lot thats closed on sudnays. Well im on the last tank doing high speed runs and a security gaurd pulls up right infront of my rusty. I see my car fly past me in total speed shock. As the car and my eyes approached the security car: i dont think i was in speed shock. My heart stoped beating as my rusty flew right in between his wheels and up the parking lot. Then he kicked me and a bunch of guys out. BTW i had no brakes because i didnt have my braking system set right and when i touched the brakes my fail safe would stop it like half break only.

    Well I just broke mine in and the next day , I didnt have them glued rite and they used to start coming off at full speed and just start ripping. It was horrible and then i would try to break and it wud like flip basically. And then then next day I hit the mailbox because I lost control with those tires not stable at all on pavement.

    They are best for onroad racing because you can turn them into slicks during break-in and right after start racing with them lol

    When the Pro .15 was the stock N Rusty engine, the stock ribbed tires lasted longer than they do now with the large increase in power from the 2.5. I know my stock ribbed tires lasted me though break in and a long time past that, until I got my OS .15 CV-R, then they were done! lol

    But with the 2.5, all I hear is that the tires pretty much last through break in.
