    Tire Traction

    Ok so right now i have the Chevron tires on my 3.3. I need something that has better traction off road on dirt and grass. Which tires are the best for this?

    Thanks

    If you can find a set of zombie Max tires, they are worth it!

    I run Pro-line CrimeFighters, more of a racing tire but still kicks butt in the grass and really good for loose sandy type dirt.

    yeah im sure when he says offroad on dirt and grass he doesnt really mean track conditions only like our tires are 450x lol

    but if you do want race tires then the crime fighters are good, as well as the proline calibers. thats what i have. for those you need the 4" vtr-4 wheels as well though.

    for overall offroad i would use badlands, mashers, and then trenchers in that order. but thats just what i recomend from proline.

    ive driven a friends with the badlands, then the mashers look like an upgraded version of the chevrons if you ask me (but i kind of like the chevrons), and then the trenchers are more of a rock climbing design but would probably do fairly well still.

    i love my calibers on the track though lol

    i have been running IMEX swap dawgs (soft) they work well and on concret they even chirp lol. they look like super swampers. IMEX makes some good tires but i did noticed my old K-rocks they make cracked on the side wall till they fell apart not sure if it's just that tire or if all there tires will do the same.... proline tires i have have yet to crack or tear.

    I also saw on another forum somewhere there are some chemicals you can put on your tires that will help soften the rubber to make them grip better.
