    Question Upgrading tires

    After blowing out 3 sets of tires I’m curious what kind of tires everyone’s running. What would you guys Recommend sticking with the originals or is there a better upgrades

    I have my stock V1 tires that I took apart, taped, re-glued, and balanced them. They run well, and I haven't had any problems with them. I also run, the new Proline wheels, and they are very nice too. If I had to pick between the two, I like the new Proline's the best. They look better than anything else out there, and they run really, really good.

    I run proline badlands. I love that you don't have to glue tires and the tread compound doesnt show any signs of wear from running on pavement so far. Downside is they are a little heavy and you loose 3 mph up top! They hook up very well and don't balloon at all with 18/50 gearing on 8s.

    Best wheels and tires you can get hands down are the MadMax Land G-Rippers. Proline badlands are too heavy. The MadMax are lighter, stronger, and perform better.

    Thanks for the link. Look pretty good. At 60 a corner, they’ll never really catch on


    Somehow builds are never done....

    They are pricey, but I've always like that kind of tread.

    Sounds like we have a tire review in the near future.

    Maybe, if I ever give up the normal job I have now for a life of crime selling addictive unauthorized pain killers.
