    imo most chevrons style tires will last the longest OFF road..but generaly have poor traction unless your in damp to muddy conditions...

    personly im a big fan of chevrons there generaly the best bang for the buck when it comes to bashing

    For all around running, you would be better off with the sporttraxx or the trail dawgs. If you pln on racing, the response tires would do a great job. The sporttraxx and trail dawgs will last you a long time, but the responses will not last nearly as long. It really comes down to what you plan to do with them.

    I am looking in getting the "Big Joe" from proline then putting them on either dished white or bead locks rims, (bead lock rims are much more) and I like the dished for off road (it keeps the sticks out of the rims. The Big Joe's are also an inch wider than the stock tires. Looking forward to show revo likes it

    i don't like chevrons because they have no traction what so ever. i used my old school tmaxx tires for bashing and just didn't like them what so ever. and the big joes are so big... you'll be having diff problems in no time. added to the diff problems the 2.5r has a hard time shifting with them on. i would stick with a lighter weight tire for better performance and less stress on your truck

    imo i wouldnt go for any of those. my pick goes to the maxx mulchers by proline. i had a pair, and they held up great under my picco.27. worked great for all surfaces

    I run the 3.8 Sporttraxx Revo tires they are soft rubber, hook up very well and do not last long on hard pac surfaces. The responce tires are supposed to also be soft rubber and lighter for racing.

    I just got maximizer beadlocks and team losi zombies and the set works great for me. I am a basher so can't tell you for racing. They look sexy too. LOL
