    Tires for my ground surface

    I have the Traxxas Talon tires which I find aren't that great on the surface I run on offroad. I love offroad and bashing
    Here's a link to the place I run at
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RF3Sjts5UoM&list=UU-m5vuyf3lH02ouKmRApEDg&index=1


    I'm looking to get proline calibers or snipers. or maybe badlands but the ground seems hard packed with light dust/dirt on top. Can anyone see the video and expand and inform me on which type of tire treads I should get?

    Pro-Line Moab tires are good, IMO.

    Awesome video brings me back to when I was a teenager bashing in the woods with all my friends. I had some of the greatest times bashing around with my friends like that.

    The best tire for the place you run would be a small pin style tire. I tried them all. Panther Komodo dragon or there panther stud. That style works the best in your condtion theres also 2 styles of proline that works great also. Check them out, check out the style of tire so you get the idea of what to look for.

    Thanks for the input, ive never heard of panther tires but they seem to be basically just like the proline tires i was looking at. I was curious about the proline calibers and sniper tires but wasnt sure which was better or what kind of compound to get them in m2 m3 or m4

    If you want to increase your ground clearance (most JATO owners do...) then go with MOAB, Badlands, or Mashers. I always loved the MOAB tires, and your terrain looks pretty ideal for the larger meats of the MOAB tires.

    I second the Proline Moabs. Great tires. I had them on a 2.5 Jato and now on my nitro Rustler.

    Thanks guys, do they still make moabs for the jato?
    Because i never see them on towerhobbies or proline's website.

    Can someone link me to them where you can purchase them?
    Otherwise i think i have to go with badlands

    I dont think proline makes the moab in 2.2 anymore. Could be wrong. Check out fleabay I've seen some on there.

    As for the anacondas spinning, buy some proline road rages. Best onroad tire I have used.

    Road rages are super good.
