    Anything 'belted' like the GRP posted above (available in different compounds) or the dboots hoons for the arrma infraction and limitless should work well.

    it means it has an inner layer of steel or kevlar, etc mesh to prevent ballooning like in one of the pics here - https://www.prolineracing.com/tires/...es-mounted.asp

    Before you could buy them easily people would turn the tires inside-out and put duct tape on the inside of the tire before they turned them back inside-in and glued the tires over the foam onto the wheels.

    Try also duratrax Bandito 1/8 buggy mounted tires. I had good luck running them on pavement up to 4s 2200kv power.

    I was looking at my box o tires and a few others that I overlooked

    -proline prime 2.8. A little slippery when cold but once warmed up not too bad and provides a lot more cushion than the less meaty options

    - proline road rage or proline street fighter, they both are available in 2.8 1/10 MT size now, though road rage might have been replaced by the street fighter in that size.

    Proline also makes a avenger hp in 1/8 buggy size that looks promising but I have not tried them. Their site says itís rated up to 100mph.

    Welcome to the Traxxas forums!

    Many speed runners also use BSR foams tires:

    Not much. They are constructed specifically to not balloon as much as, say, duratrax Bandito mt sized tires.

    The thing I like about the prolines is that they have enough rubber to absorb the imperfections in the pavement without tossing the car around when it hits a pebble or a small rock.
