    Tires for thick dirt

    What do you recommend for thick dirt tires and rims?

    The guys I run with use paddles, but I would prefer to get a tire which does well in the thick dirt but can also be used at the track.

    Would the Geolanders do well? Or Gladiators?

    they are 1 5/8" wide and so far they are holding up great and hook great (for track racing if the track is dry they kind of suck) you could get some soft compound rubber to help with that tho

    Geolander, but I liked my flat irons, a little tall, but grip really well...a little too well.

    Are those racing spikes the hard or pro compound?

    The shop that sells these is one town over from me and I'm considering trying them. I have the big block in pro compound and now that they resurfaced the track, it's all hard pack and blue groove, I burnt through half the tread on the rears already in 2 outings.

    Those are the medium, the soft would say pro.

    I'm thinking about trying them in the medium. They're definitely cheap enough to try. I'm also going to get the truggy size for my e-revo.

    I already own the mohawks and big blocks which I love.
