    Best Tires for Slash?

    I'm looking into buying some tires for my mini. Looking for more of a pavement, dirt tire with good grip. Any ideas?

    I had a set of 26mm sedan wheels for my merv and they should work on the slash.

    #4470 HPI Rally tire. They wore out quick on pavement but they worked great on dirt and short grass. I think the #4467 hpi Pirelli T rally tire would be better all around. They should mount to any 26mm wheel, I used #3716 hpi mesh wheels.

    The slash runs different bead size wheels than the Merv, so the tires will not fit. Finding different dirt tires for the Slash is a HUGE pain. I ended up having to order a set from China, from ebay.

    I liked my ProLine Dirt Hawg tires. They aren't too sticky on dirt or pavement, but that's what I liked about them. They let you slide instead of traction roll.

    If you want sticky, get ProLine Trenchers.

    Alright, awesome. What would be the right size for a mini slash?
