I want to keep the scale look on my new slash, but i really dont like the tires that came with the truck (PE, S1 tires). To hard rubber, no good grip.
The rims look good, those I can continue using.
Pro-lines rims look good to, so rims are not a problem finding.
The problem is tires.
I race on a grasstrack, bash on everything, mostly gravel.
We plan on adding sections with sand/dirt to our track.
Regular 2.2"/2.2" wheels do not fit in the front due to the large C-hubs...
1/8th scale wheels look weird on the slash. To much rims and to little tire.
All I can find is three different 2.2"/3.0" tires from pro-line.
The calibers would probably be a good choise for grass.. but wouldnt last 5 minutes on gravel.
Switch looks alot like slash originals, perhaps a bit better grip?
Probably not that good on grass..
Bow-tie looks ok, but how does it hold up?
Losi have a tire made for their SC truck to but it looks like it would have worse grip than slash originals.
Are there any other brand I have missed?
Less than five different tires to choose from when going with scale look?
On my 2wd slash I liked the pro-line gladiator in the rear. Good on most surfaces. Dirt paws are wonderful on grass/dirt but instantly dies on gravel.
Help me out now!
