    Dirt tires

    Hello,

    I recently got a 1/10 slash 2wd. I was at a dirt track and my tires were sliding everywhere. I need some foot dirt tires. Any suggestions ? Thanks!!!!

    You should be checking out any tire that has small pins like the Proline Calibers or something similar. Next time you're there, ask one of the experienced guys what he uses.

    Yes, sounds good. And those tires you commented. What would you recommend? Soft, super soft, or medium?

    Any tire you buy the softer the compound the more traction you'll get but also the softer they are the faster they'll wear down, some people use tires that only last 1 race, but +1 on OGs comment, you can't really ask anybody on forums what tire you should buy for racing unless you provide the terrain of the track you race at but it's always better to ask someone that's experienced at your track

    It also depends on if they water the track or run dry. Calibers are great on a moist track but wear out on a dry track dirt generally.

    For off road I lean towards Gladiators and Badlands when there is alot of loose soil on top of hard pack.
