    Tire and wheel choices

    Sorry more noobs questions.

    I live in the desert and there is tons of dirt bike track around here. I dont necessarily need the big mushy moster truck tires for my Revo all the time. The dirt isnt always soft sandy or gooshy muddy. Most of the time its like hard pack clay. So i was looking for a wheel and tire combo that is not so mushy. Tires that dont expand when going fast.

    Input, suggestions and links are welcome.

    i hope your driveline is ready for all the grip those trenchers have
    i spat the rear diff out in under 2 mins,but for thoses 2 minutes that truck hooked up like crazy

    i have the trencher x on 2 of my rigs and love em but if its being put on a stock engined truck i would suggest maybe looking at the trenchers or badlands,alot lighter and still hook up great

    I like the trenchers. Looks awesome ausher. I've had my eye on some badlands with 1/2" os desperados.

    It makes the truck look massive!!! Great traction on grass and on the street.

    will these trenchers and badlands that u r talking about fit the revo 3.3 without rubbing when suspension is absorbing a jump or hard cornering, and between 2 which is less likely to balloon up at higer speeds. and what does ,or the reason for getting 1/2 in offset

    I have a set of the Desperado Wheels with Mashers from Proline. The 1/2 off set is so it doesnt rub when cornering. The absord jumps real good and are nice and mushy.

    But im looking for a harder tire that wont ballon up at higher speed or mush on take off. Basically wanting to eliminate that extra rotating mass for better acceleration and more predictable response.

    I got the 1/2" offset because it was in stock. They don't rub when turning. Sure gives the revo a massive stance tho. They balloon up a little with the power of a big block, but a lot less than the talons which pretty much get ripped off the rims. They may not balloon up at all with a 3.3
