    They will run well in snow but not on pavement. My dirt hawgs work well, they sort of scoop the snow away.

    Sand paws, or studded dirt paws are good. (youtube the studded dirt paws).

    Stock 1/16 summit tires are not too bad.

    All of the above are leagues better than dirt hawgs in snow.

    i have both sandpaws for the beach and dirt paws for soggy muddy grass fields, i have also used dirt paws on sand and they work almost as good as the sandpaws, with just a little less grip at high speed.

    if i were you, i would go with dirt paws as they can run on more terrain. BUT do not run them on any hard packed, high traction surface, they will wear out rapidly.

    this is when they were brand new


    i don't have any new pictures, but after a year of careful use, mainly just making sure to pick up the merv when i get to concrete/asphalt, i have only lost 1mm of tread throughout.

    i think they may have become discontinued, i have 'em fitted on traxxas dish rims.

    i have no experience using mudslingers 2.2, but they do look quite narrow, i think those are designed more for a crawler. it really depends what you want to do with your truck.

    what kind of terrain do you mostly drive on? speed and driving style all should be considered, if you can give us more information we can give better recommendations

    I bought these Carson Tires for snowbashing.





    The advantage was the low price. I paid round about 20 Dollar for 4 complete wheels.

    But my recommandation is to drive on "hard" snow. If its loose it will get stuck very fast.

    Why should they dont reverse?

    The backward speed isnt as fast as with normal tires, but they are able to dig the revo out if its not able to go forward anymore.

    The control of the car and forward speed is amazing on snowy and icy grounds, I can just recommend them, especially for this price.

    Just because when in reverse there's nothing for them to grasp onto

    They have more profile than other tires have also in reverse -> so its quite okay and enough grip to go backwards most of the time you get stuck.
    But sure, the most benefit of this design you will get during you go forward.

    Edit: i regret that i didnt make any videos so i could show you how great they work, now the winter is over and there is no use for the wheels atm.
