    Slash 2wd Tire/Wheel Upgrade Recommendations

    I am looking to upgrade the stock tires and wheels on my brushless Slash 2wd. I am looking for recommendations for 2 different sets of tires and wheels, a set for an outdoor asphalt track and another set for an indoor dirt track. I'm not opposed to going with something other than the stock size 2.2/3.0 tire and wheel combination even if I need to make some changes to allow a different sized wheel to fit on the car. Please let me know what has worked for you. THANKS!

    Thanks for the responses so far. I hear good things about the Pro-Line Street Fighter tires, so those will be given some serious consideration. I tend to like chrome on wheels, so I am considering the Pro-Line Chrome Renegade Bead-locks with the Street Fighters for asphalt use.

    What tires seem to work best on the dirt tracks...I've been looking at the Pro-Line Trenchers. Any opinions???

    I have Trenchers on split six rims . They will bite on any surface . I ran today from mud , gravel , pavement , wet grass and concrete in a skate park . Only the wet smooth concrete felt slick - but I dont think anything would grip that .

    Are the Street Fighters better than Anacondas?
