I've been looking over the forums on tires and I've picked up a lot of good info, but. I'm curious who has had a chance to try Proline's new Trencher tire for the Revo. I love the look of the tire and the idea of using a tire that's a bit bigger than stock without going overboard on rotating mass and leverage.
The Trencher is a touch more narrow than the Talons and about an inch greater in diameter over stock. I've also considered HPI GT2s which are about a half inch greater in diameter over stock. I'm sure both are a bit heavier as well.
For anyone who has run the new Trenchers or something like the HPI GT2, or other similar (not going too far like with a Goliath or something) 40 series off road tire on your Revo, how has it been for you? Any increased parts breakage from the added stress? Would you recommend them for someone who wants that monster truck look and/or wants something a big bigger to handle rough driving conditions? (obviously not for racing)?
I'd love to hear your experiences with the pros and cons of running larger, heavier tires!
