    Tires

    I have the stock tires on my slash. They aren't the BFg looking tires. I was at a bicycle track that was a little dusty and the thing spun out the whole time, it also spins a lot on the pavement. What is a better tire for the rear of the slash?

    On that kind to track, just about any tire is better.

    If you are looking for bashing/track/off road, PL Badlands are a good choice. Track only, Gladiators work well.

    Nothing is going to grab on a dusty covered pavement, you can purchase better tires as listed above in Greatscotts post but your still imo going to have a hard time.

    If you can find them as they have been discontinued, the PL Switchs are good too.

    Pro line Trenchers or Badlands in medium compound are good choices for hard packed covered with loose dirt.

    I love badlands on loose dirt but any time I dig thru to a solid surface they act like their on dusty pavement in my experience.
    Trenchers are a great all around tire imo as well.
