    Cheap Tires

    Hello again, I spent all my money on good tires (proline pinpoints) on my slash 2wd track truck. I am looking for good Astro turf tires on my slash 4x4 that are cheap. I was thinking these.

    Those might be good, the tread pattern looks like the Proline Calibers.

    Dynamite Robbers are an excellent on-road tire. If those are anywhere close to the. You will be satisfied

    I think dynamite are Horizon's store brand. I hear good things about them, though. I have tried Duratrax, they are similar prove point to Dynamite. That pattern looks like it will hook up great on turf.

    Cheap Tires

    I run HPI Treppaddor Maxxis tires on carpet racing. Just juice them up with traction compound and you're set! A lot of guys run them at my track and they're quite good

    And you can find them for 50$ for 4

    May I please ask what you use for traction compound? I have heard of many different things. Trying to see what works for you.

    Cheap wheels and tires often come with lots of issues. The tires are typically not soft and the wheel hexes strip. Tires and wheels are your only contact to the road. You should not cheap out here.

    Agree a ton. I plan on running beadlocks, so changing the tire is easy. You really want to run a tire for the surface
