    Best tires for all around bashing

    Hey guys I have been thinking about getting new tires for my rusty 4x4, I already blew out two of them. I have been thinking about getting proline trencher 2.8 for the front and rear, is there anything else I should consider? Thanks.

    Trenchers are great for donuts, drifts, air control, ballooning, and longevity. However for traction on almost every surface, mx2.8 badlands would be a better choice, however they will not last nearly as long, or look as cool imo.

    What about tires for running on the street outside my house, I will change back to stock for off roading.

    I would do any tire BESIDES the badlands. They're for off-road use only and offer way too much sideways traction for any surface with good grip, it'll just flip the truck on 2 wheels every turn. They also wear down incredibly fast on roads. I would go trenchers, as they're a good compromise between wear, street performance, and off-road.

    I agree with ya 110%! Trenchers or trencher Xís are a good all around tire. Running them on my summit and they work well for both on and off road use. And they donít wear out too fast either.

    If you are a rich boy, get mx 2.8's for offroad and on road slicks. If not just get trenchers 2.8 for on road and off road...

    On my modified Slash 4x4s, I like the following

    For all-around bashing:
    ProLine 2.8 Trenchers

    For non-all around bashing:
    Offroad: ProLine 2.8 Badllands MX28s
    Onroad: Proline 2.8 Primes or JConcepts 2.8 G-Locs

    Peeeenuuut is correct. There is no front or rear Trencher TIRES.

    something like these would be good I would have to think. I have had them on my stampede 4x4. great traction in snow and dirt and on the road.
