    Anaconda 2.2 rears and front served me well for 1.5 years of traction. The fronts still have understeer but they get the job done

    I've been kinda looking at the proline street fighters and those as well but kinda want to stay away from the pin style hubs pesky things like to fall out

    If you want to go up to 17mm you could get a pair of 1:8 GRP slicks or treaded for a little under $40 plus 17mm hubs for about $30. I have run a pair of treaded for a while and they work like glue

    This is the GRP website if you're interested: http://www.grpgandini.it/index.php?o...emid=6&lang=en

    I would say get the anacondas they defantly get the job done. IMO but they do wear down fairly fast.

    Yeah same, made the mistake of runing those on road and making them bald. The compound it pretty good though so even bald they still had grip

    To be honest I've actually thought about throwing some 2.2 mudslinges on the rear to see how they do even though its 2wd I've got em on my maxx and they work wonders for it

    Its also fun to stick the stock pin style wheels on and rip around the grass with huge grass and dirt rooster tails. But only if your motor runs cool and has a torquey gearing can you rip the grass out from the earth. Thats one of my favorite things in this hobby

    Mine does that now that I've gotten the velineon in it even with the cheapo wheels and pin tires I've got on it but they didn't hold up to brushless all that well

    Look at AKA, they make a lot of different tires. Jaco foam tires do pretty well on the road also.
    Bashes well with others
