    louise rc tires for X MAXX

    today i got my new louise rc x maxx tires uphill. so the alternatives for the x maxx tires start go get better. they weight 780g per tire (x uphill version i have here), so almost the same as the PL badlands mx43.

    they have a micro fiber technology (MFT) kind of "net" included. it should reduce balooning or more generally reduce the deformation of the tires. if that really works will be seen. the looks is cool. the MFT is feelable if you press the tire.

    there are four options:
    - x uphill, they look like badlands
    - x rocket, onroad tires
    - x pioneer, little different than uphill
    - x cyclone, chevron style





    bye,

    Aliexpress.com sells them in the US. Little cheaper than Proline options, but remember the Proline tire combos you can reuse the wheels, being beadlocks. Ungluing is a pain, spoken from personal experience.

    There are listings on eBay pretty regularly but ships from China so it would be the same as purchasing from a site like AliExpress.
    I have seen some ballooning tests on YouTube but all with gearing for 50-60 mph. I'm more curious of their behavior at 70+mph.
    At 180.00 per set I'm not ready to buy just yet without a review that fits my interests.

    I don’t think they’ll serve your quest for speed. You’re gonna have to wait for Rick to make you a set.

    Those look crazy mean on a revo. Seeing them in x-maxx size would be equally so.

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the advertisement. Though I have some Duratrax 2.8 tires (on a Slash) and they feel like they don't have much if any foam in them and balloon a bit.

    I was gonna grab them, VIX said they’re not Proline quality, that’s a no go in my book


    Somehow builds are never done....

    I want to get a set of the cyclone/ hatchet's but I'm concerned about the weight. I'm a hard basher lol similar to Kevin Talbot on some days.

    Any first hand experiences until now?

    A buddy of mine is thinking about getting a set of the x pioneers for his x-maxx.
    I own a set of "regular" 3.8 pioneers, used them a few times on my e-revo 2.0 and the ballooning is absolutely atrocious, in addition to the glue coming undone on two wheels after running them brand new for 10 minutes.

    If the ballooning is somewhat fixed with this MFT, they may be worth a shot, but I'm generally no fan of louise tires anymore...
