    Badlands or trenches

    Need tires. Proline Badlands or trenchers? Open to another brand if they will stay on splitsix beadlocks Which gets more grip and more important which wears better? I run 70% street the rest grass and gravel

    I like 2.2. Badlands. My drivetrain likes them and they have good grip. They are not as concrete friendly as trenchers.

    I love trenchers but they strain the driveshafts a little more than Badlands.

    70% street? Proline Switch last longer than the two you have mentioned.

    I have some Badlands but they are for dirt, grass, mud, snow but not street that is for sure bro. You try them on street and take a turn full speed and you will flip! Other then that I love my Bandlands!!!

    I love my switches on the street and dirt. They are starting to get a lil thin though. Have have them on for a lil over a year.

    Badlands will go up in smoke on street. I run then on my 1/5 scale for dirt only, great tire for that. Pro-line Gladiators are great, I run them on my stadium truck. Trenchers in m2 will last a long time, even on street. They are great all-terrain tire, but don't really shine on anything. Jack of all trades, master of none. The fact you have 4x4 helps a lot to overcome the Trencher's grip on grass and such. For running around the street after dinner, and then out onto the baseball diamond I love them. Making sure you get m2 vs m3 for summer bashing will increase their life a lot. Especially on street running.

    I have Gladiators. They are decent on all types of surfaces instead of great on one particular. They are known for lasting a little longer than the more popular tires. Calibers for example. I bought the Gladiators because the Calibers are sold out.

    I am running the mmp 2400kv on 2S. No racing just bashing with the son when I am not working, witch has been way to much this year. We try to get out least once each set of days off, witch is every other week.
