    Question Tires for running on flat snow?

    When running on flat snow the stock tires doesnt seem to have much grip so there is alot of spinning.

    My X-Maxx just own the snow :-) and i would like my Stampede 4x4 VXL TSM to do the same if possible.

    Is there any tires more suitible for the job you can recommend?

    Thanks any input

    On powder snow, sand paddles. If the surface is frozen, you'll need spikes or chains. A good all-around tire could be proline trencher

    Mostly, almost only frozen (flat) snow.

    Better than stock?

    Trenchers are vastly superior to stock in almost all conditions. However, for frozen snow you will still do better with chains. There are some recent threads here where some people show theirs off. From what I can tell you will have to make them yourself but they seem to work well.

    Mashers rule the snow. If you put chains on them they can go anywhere.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    No you don't have to make chains yourself. You can buy them...

    I'm sure it does. Might be worth searching your side of the pond for a supplier though if you don't want to make them.

    super easy to make the chains yourself. Personally I was running 3S and snapped them all the time. I find the Sand Paws are killer in softer snow but honestly the paddles are firm enough they dig into firm snow too. I think you will find they do real well, unless it's really really packed like to an almost solid ice. I'm amazed at what the Sand Paws bite into.
