    Pro-line Badlands would work great.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    What size tires are you looking for? Stadium truck sized tires or larger monster truck sized tires? I ask because some people don't like running larger tires on their stadium trucks.

    If you go with MT sized tires you'll probably want to drop the size of your clutch bell, especially if running off road. The Jato is geared for the factory tires and high speed on-road running.

    Some small change in gearing would be wise if going off-road even with factory sized tires.

    I personally really like the 2.2 Yokohama Geolander. They have good traction, but they are also hard enough that they wear really well, and the fact that they arent really soft also keeps them from pancaking as bad at higher speeds and they dont wobble as much as the larger softer tires do. Personally, I just feel that the jato has too much speed for large, soft tires. Of course if you are only running them off road and have a different set of on-road tires then that would work good, but the Geolanders are a good do it all tire if that is what you are looking for.

    I'd run Moab 2.2 series or the Badlands tires, both are great for getting the Jato over some smaller rocks etc, with great traction!
