    I like maxx mulchers on sand. They hook up great on the beach.

    You could get some 1/10 Summit tires... I know they would have more traction, but I don't think they like high speeds very much, or pavment. Just my .02 cents.

    When I used to run on sand I used big joes. They hooked up really well on both wet and dry sand

    Yes. Big joes are huuuuuuugggggggge tyres and a huge strain on nitro engines, even brushless. Great tyres though but I think too hefty for practical use.

    For what it's worth my mulchers are 5 years old and still in great nick, I run them on 40 series rims.

    Tried the big joes and they are a strain on the drive line and when you do get it geared right they are so big that my truck would kinda float around over fast bumps and thats not what I want out of my expensive truck. Surprisingly the ol' style T-maxx chevrons on the 3.2's are my favorite all around bash tires.

    I have had all the pro line tires, the Mashers are great, should last a long time but they are a real good size, The trenchers are really tall and hook up almost to good, the truck will flip more but they work best on rough ground. The badlands are best in soft dirt/clay loads a traction and I barely ever flip, but pavement will wear them out, they also looks the best. I wish the badlands were the same size as the mashers.

    I thought the same thing when I bought them, I thought they would get used in real bad winter conditions only but they turned into my regular tyres. Bear in mind I also run them on a brushless revo so they see a lot more power than nitro too.

    To elaborate on the toughness of these tyres here they are on my picco revo about 3 years ago.



    And here they are after me going brushless a couple of months ago.



    When they eventually wear out I will buy the same again. they are less than 25% through their life at a guess.
