    Suggestions for inexpensive bashing tires?

    I've been spoiled with inexpensive, good quality tires and beadlock wheels for my crawlers, but it's time to look for some new tires for my 2wd Slash and 2wd Stampede.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for (preferably) fully assembled tires for bashing outside with this spring/summer? I've got good quality tires, but really want something cheap that I don't have to worry about wearing down.

    I've seen some really inexpensive ones on Aliexpress, but don't have any experience with them.

    I love my Duratax Banditos, but they are $80 Canadian for a set. I was hoping to find something closer to what I was paying for some ebay crawler wheels and tires I've been using ($20 - $40 for a set of 4).

    I'll second that. Good tires for how cheap they are.

    Never owned a pair myself, but a buddy of mine got em and seemed to like them well enough for the price.
