    Proline Tire recommendation please- cant decide.....

    Stuck between bowties and trenchers for bashing on grass/ baseball fields/ street/ camping spots and limited track time at the local LHS. I assume the M2 grade will hold up longer than M3 correct? Looking for any advice, as they both look nice, but I need some grip compared to the laugher stock BFGs..........thanks!!

    I'd look at some of the caliber's M2, Sniper's or Gladiator's. I have caliber M3's and they are super sticky on the track, but would be gone in 1 day of street bashing.

    i have used the trenchers for bashing. They seem to be pretty good. The are OK for racing on the track we have here (hard pack dirt with loose sand). Calibers are MUCH better. I have Caliber M2's that I use now on my slash and slayer. Excellent traction and good wear.

    Hope this helps.

    Easy decision: get BOTH. They're not really all that comparable, well, any more than apples and oranges are.

    +1 on getting both too

    I have trenchers and tried racing on a indoor clay track and a outdoor hard packed track and I was really struggling for traction

    I'm going to go with M3 2.0 calibers for racing

    Theres not really a tire that can perform great for bashing and racing
    Nothin' like a 4 on the floor and a V8
