    Street Tires

    Anyone have a recommended street tire? I'm currently running trenchers but they are getting eaten up.

    What car are you driving? Mini E-Revo or Mini Slash?

    I’m with zedorda and like Duratrax Banditos with JConcepts Rulux 2.2.

    I've never built tires, just repaired them. What foam should I get?

    The majority of tires have the foam included.

    I didn’t like the foam the Banditos came with so I got closed cell foams from Pro-Line. Much better.

    Do you by chance remember a part number or name for the foam? The only pro-line foam I can find is their progressive rock crawler foam.

    Should I keep the tires in the bag? My roommate said it would be a good way to keep the tackiness on it.

    I reuse the original bag when I store tires for longer periods of time. Like 3 month+

    I will do that for winter then. But what about if I drive it a couple times every week? Just leave them on?

    They should be fine with that. At that rate you should wear them out before they dry out.
