I came across these wheels and tires on amazon.
Has anyone tried?
Nope, but I do like the Terrain Crushers look. Depending on the rubber compound, would make for a good basher tire that spends some time in skate parks and on grass. $40 isn't too bad for tire/wheel/foam preglued either.

Yeah I like those terrain ones
I wonder if there's a offset on the rims tho
Those are the Sweep Racing tires. Octavius has some on his ERBE.
I think there is a youtuber running those on his speed erbe
I just checked ebay listing, it seems like offset is 0.25". Please correct me if I am wrong
Wheel: 17mm Hex, 1/4" offset, made out of Sweep's top secret ROK Hard strong material.
After looking again, didn't seem like a full 1/2" on them.

Ordered a set of the terrains
Please post back with your review on them. I was going to order some too but not sure about it. I'm mainly concerned about their thread wear and I'm on the fence about getting tires with an offset I do however like the fact that they aren't suppose to balloon under fast speeds since they are belted

78 mph E-Revo on 6s
65 mph Stampede on 3s
I ordered a set for my erevo brushless when they came out.no complaints here.before purchase I contacted them for speed rating ,I was concerened about ballooning also,and they told me they did not put a speed rate on them so I took a chance on them.no ballooning at 79mph on several speed runs, also glue stayed in tact.
Those look way better than the HPI Phatlines.
Might give those a shot at some point if i keep my ERBE.
(RAH)² (AH)³ + [ROMA (1+MA)] + (GA)² + (OOH)(LA)²
imo the road crushers are better,i also have phaltlines I was using and at high speed they ballooned.
How is the learning curve with using tires like these that don't balloon? I'd imaging it will drive differently
Truckboy, did your road crushers need balancing?? I'm really interested in getting some street tires for my truck.
no,i took them out of package and put on car.i know that some times you can buy tires that are out of round,but thats a chance you take when you get them pre mounted.i have had my share.its a crap shoot,but I am not very good at gluing.
you have to take a little time to get use to the tires and slowly build up your speed.
Maybe it's just me but even the offroad version looks like it doesn't have much grip even on a road surface but maybe it does
They don't ballon at all. They definitely take getting used to. IMO, I found the best result was getting rid of camber. Provides more contact patch on the ground. I have mine set pretty low with slight camber to make up for front end lift on acceleration it'll flatten out. To me, they behave how a normal car tire would. On 6s, at a decent speed you can go full throttle and they can break loose. Once getting up to speed I think they handle pretty well, the tread isn't very deep, and when I started running them with the normal camber I had I noticed some decent wear at first…which was another reason I got rid of some.
what was that? what was what..oh that. thats mine.
These tires should be the standard, they r ace.
Ordered set of each as well, will post up reviews once I get them tomorrow.
