    Thanks. I was worried that the badlands would be too narrow for the dishes, despite proline claiming they fit all traxxas 3.8 inch wheels. But I guess proline was right.

    I also have Mashers on yellow J concepts 3.2 offset rulux spokes wheels. They look sick as well. The mashers are for when I will be mixing it up with road and offroad in the same charge. They badlands are grass and dirt only.

    Does anyone know how quickly/slowly these tires wear as an all around tire (road, grass and dirt mainly?)

    I power coated the rims, & taped tires.. Best tires so far but one is starting to tear.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I am a fan of the tire.....But i do feel they are a little to thin..

    My havenít torn yet but I feel if I get on it hard with 5s they might fail after a few good sessions im not even gonna put 6s on these.

    Just wondering if anyone has used the new 3.8 road rages on the traxxas wheels. Do they perform well? Do you have any pictures to post here? Thanks

    hey oldbikedude those 3.2 badlands seem to have a wide sidewall compared to the 3.8 badlands
    they might stop them from tearing apart like someone mentioned

    my last set of tyres split along sidewall so next set i buy i want good grip in had dirt but strong sidewall
    how to the 3,2 badlands go on hard packed dirt

    So I finally blew two tyres off (stock rims and tyres, 4s).
    I'm looking at replacing the tyres now, maybe some new rims later.

    Will 3.2" Mashers fit the stock rims alright?
    Also, they look to have a pretty solid bit of tread running around the middle of the tyres - will this help stop them ballooning? I'm not sold on taping tyres (don't want to have to bake tyres off if the tape comes undone inside them).

    In short no, traxxas wheels have their own unique bead design so you need traxxas tires or prolines tire that are made for traxxas wheels. Also the stock wheel is 3.8 so you have to really stretch a 3.2 on there.

    Thanks for the quick reply. There are so many combinations to choose from and it's hard to know what will fit and what won't.
    Looks like I'll be getting a wheel and tyre combo - probably something from this thread.

    I wanted an off set & so I went with Summit Geode's rims 3.8 & Proline Badlands 3.8 tires #1178-00.
    Do you like the before or the after? I still need to glue & balance them.

    To keep the badland theme going. Proline 3.8 badlands mounted on Proline VTR 1/2 offset wheels. I really like this combo super light and tons of traction. I have about a dozen runs on them and they aren't showing any wear.

    b/c the tires fit fine when stretched 0.2" onto the bigger rim. It's actually less than the width of a pencil.

    87 GN When you say the rims are powder coated, do you do the powder coating yourself and do you do it with the tyres on? I thought powder coating left a matt finish rather than shiney?

    They look awesome though.

    Tires off, Did it myself, There is a bit of a trick to it. I built a stand to put all four rims on, so i don't have to touch them, once I start. Plastic is non metalic, unlike steel. So it is hard to get a good coverage. The powder doesn't like to stick to plastic. The first set I did I had them looking perfect, put them in to bake & It started to melt the rim. Junked four rims. Lesson learned. I am using 95% gloss powder. That is why they have a gloss look.

    If you are using 6s LiPO set up then I would tape Talon tyres. I have seen some Talon tyres that have ripped at high speed. Tape will help prevent this.

    Does any one know the weight difference between the badlands 3.2 and 3.8? I ve been looking for the 3.2 but couldnt find one. Im a bit concern of the weight increase in 3.8 over the 3.2.. And what are the advantages of badlands 3.8 over 3.2?

    3.8 are Traxxas beads. They no longer make the 3.2

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The tyre that changed the world in 3.2 is discontinued.

    What about all those with Maximizer beadlocks? I think the Masher will go next as it's the last one standing. I just hope they make that in a Traxxas Bead. Chrome Geode's also seem to be out of stock in many places and Proline's VTR's don't have any offset.

    Proline released two new wheels with the traxxas bead. One is zero offset and and the other is 1/2" offset. I got lucky and found a set of 1/2" offset vtrs. You might still be able to find some.

    The thing that I don't care for about the new proline tires is that it limits you to only a few wheels. Before you had lots of options. Apparently the traxxas bead design is supposed to be better because you have a more of a glue area.

    Desperado 3.8's look awesome! Thanks for letting us know b@3. The pic they have of the wheels mounted on the Summit, wrapped in Road Rages looks fantastic. I'm glad they've released a wheel with offset because although they do add a small amount of extra stress to the bearings etc, the wider stance make handling so much better.
