    Tire recommendations?

    I'll be upgrading my tires soon. Planning on getting the proline beadlock wheels and I've been looking at the trenchers. 40% or so of my driving is on pavement with the rest being a mixture of dirt, gravel, and short grass. Any recommendations?

    Proline gladiator ii's are a great option, they don't wear as much as the trencers and from my experience last a LONG time, (i went threw 2 sets of badlands by the time my gladators worn out) that was 90% offloading.
    Good luck!

    If your referring to the BFGs that come on some models, they are pretty much garbage. While they look very realistic they dont preform well on any surface.
    With your mix of driving I would go with Trenchers or Gladiators.

    I agree with the above, traxxas rtr tires are THE WORST tire I ever had.

    the stock traxxas tires can do well on clean carpet if you sand them a bit once in a while.
