    Proline Gladiators are a good set of tires for both hard and somewhat loose dirt.

    I used to run calibers on my hard pack outdoor track. I'd recommend those.

    Would badlands be good?
    Is it fast enough? No, no it isn't.

    I run PL HoleShots for that kind of surface.

    Any ballooning with these, they look like an aggressive tire.

    They are internally webbed, so I haven't noticed any ballooning at all. The included foams are also quite firm, and hold the shape of the tire extraordinarily well. I've been running a set on my SC8.2e, and love them so much I bought a second set for my mid-motor Slash. They grip as good as they look.

    I'm all 17mm, so I run SC8 stock (faux beadlock,) SC8.2e stock (Method 12 spoke,) and DE Trinidads. The Methods are the toughest of the lot.
