    What tires for beadlocks?

    I am trying to figure out what tires I should put on my axial beadlock wheels. I am looking for a good climbing tire. I have a set of trencher 3.8 and a set of trencher 40 series. Both of them are good tires but not the best for climbing as they are a little hard.

    My truck is stock accept it has a Dewalt motor. What would you guys suggest?

    RC4WD customized mudslingers are always popular and works well. Proline Moab Xl with cut foams. But most tires summit sized are made for bashing and have to be customized for serious climbing

    Why would I need to cut the foams for the Moab tires?

    I believe people star the foams to give more climbing traction.

    I just got a set of Trencher X 's this week and like everything else I've heard, they seem nice for bashing but I'm looking for something else to add to the crawling tires. I'm looking forward to responses to this thread. I was leaning towards either the Mudslingers or maybe even the Roc Locs.

    Trimming the foam so when viewed from the side it looks like a gear
    Or a star if you will.It allows the tire to flatten and flex around objects for better grip
