help for tire choice
I was looking for good 2.8'' tire. Type of terrain: loose dirt, hard dirt, small gravel . I've seen that many of you like trenchers, trenchers and trenchers on desperado. Are they fine for this?
I was also looking for a ''masher'' style tire
Which are better for what I want to do?
I love my trenchers they are great for every type of surface i have tried but you could go with the mashers but you will need 2.2" rpm offset wheels. my next set will be dirt hawgs because they are lighter and smaller as well:)....peace
I really like my masher 2K
Both good tires.
I have found the Mashers last longer
I mounted my set on RPM Revolver Wide rims
Thanks guys, I found exactly what I want. this:
2.8 Proline Trenchers on 2.8 Proline Desperados
2.2 Proline Masher 2000 stretched on 2.8 Proline Desperados
which one do you recommend me????
The trenchers look more evil man:eek:...peace
The soft side wall of the Trenchers makes the car a little bit more wobbly but on the other hand it helps the Trenchers to keep the grip longer before it starts to slide. I often run with JConcepts G-Locs which make it roll less, but it also slides sooner when the surface gets more slippery.
That same difference might be the case between the Trenchers and the stretched Mashers.
I run mostly on dirt (hard and soft), gravel and a little grass. The Trenchers have more grip vs. the Masher V style. My Desperado wheels are a bit too fragile for my liking though. If you jump then tend to get cracks and then get out of round. That's because the rims are too thin for hard bashing and there's no strengthening ring on the inside like there is on the outside edge. You might try to find a tougher 2.8 wheel (good luck!). I'm running on 3.2 Revolvers now. They can take the abuse.
Rob my desperados are weak as well so i now powerflex to bond the hex into the wheels and my probs have gone because it makes it all solid:)...peace
Trenchers are always a great choice for sure...
Proline just released mashers with traxxas style beads in 2.8. they are some of the best all around tires
Well i will be getting a set mashers as soon as they come to the UK:thumbup:...peace
Finally, I bought trenchers. Thank you everybody!!
