    Top one should give you pretty good handling, low profile with fairly big spaced out nubs for loose surfaces.

    Bottom ones are very monster truck like, should be good for absorbing some impact from jumps etc. Can't imagine they'll handle too good in the corners though.

    If you want race wheels definitely the top ones then. They look a bit like Vorza wheels in that pic

    I would buy the too rims and trim the bottom tires to fit. That'd be a sweet lookin setup.

    The top black ones look sweet. If they had an offset they would be perfect.

    Yes I wish they had an offset I was also considering getting some badlands on 3.8" with 1/2" offset would those be good for dirt racing

    I hear good things about badlands. The lower profile tire, the better it handles. I really like the 3.8 chevrons, thet work good on any surface. On road, they slide just enough to help keep u from rollin over, but they dont grip as well as an offroad tire like badlands or trenchers. What cell count battery do u use?

    I had the badlands and they kicked butt on dirt and snow and if you are wanting to do some offroad bashing get them but try to avoid the road because they will get chewed up really fast, also check out rc4wd if you want to good tires but they can be a bit pricy, i would look at the the 40 series tires

    I got that from their site under the "shipping" tab.

    I do like the tire tread pattern but the price is a little high @$75+shipping to get it here.

    If you can get them not premounted I would by the top rims and the bottom tire. Since the bottom tire uses a smaller rim you just trim your sidewall to the size needed to fit the bigger rims. Easy to do and gives you a larger selection of tires to choose from once you figure out how to do it.

    I'm not sure it would work since the bottom tire is about 3/4 of an inch wider

    Not a fan of either style wheel. Traxxas and HPI monster wheels appeal to me most; some of the HPI rims come in many finishes like black chrome, which is sharp.

    Tops should do good if you have a loose track and- for some bashing! They look like they would take a very long time to wear out. They kinda look like a proline badland which is what i use for racing and some bashing.~MaxxRacer 2012

    They seem a little small diameter to me:

    Stock E-Maxx
    Height: 6.3" (160mm)
    Width: 3.3" (84mm)

    Reely Truggy wheel
    Height: 5.3" (134 mm)
    Width: 2.9" (74 mm
    )

    Proline Badlands 3.8"
    Height: 5.85" (149mm)
    Width: 2.72" (64mm)

    Proline CrimeFigthers #80008
    Height: 5.70 (142mm)
    Width: 3.2 (80 mm

    Traxxas Response Pro 3.8" #5375
    Height: 5.75 (147mm)
    Width: 3.27 (83mm)

    Traxxas SportTraxx Racing 3.8" #5470
    Height: 5.75 (146mm)
    Width: 3.8 (96.5 mm)

    After bashing the good will out of my TrencherX's, and switched back to stock Maxx tires, I was surprised how well they performed, compared to those mighty TrencherX's.

    So I'm hunting for new tires to.
    So far, I'm leaning towards the Traxxas Response Pro 3.8".

    I agree, they look good but a 1/2" offset would be sweet.
