    Are Proline Badlands too narrow for the Summit?

    I have a Slash Ultimate and a Summit and am thinking of getting some snow and gravel tires for one of them. I'm leaning towards the Summit because I think the ground clearance will help in the snow. When looking at the specs for the Badlands, it looks like they are narrower than the stock Canyons and the Rock Rages (that I have on now).

    Has anyone put the Badlands on their Summits and had success with snow or loose gravel? Thanks!

    By any chance do you have photos of the tires beside the Canyons? In your photos, the two tires actually look to be the same width. The Badlands look to be almost low profile, but I'm not sure if that is the case.

    Have you tried your Badlands in snow and/or gravel?

    Yes they are much narrower and no I haven't tried them
    One the badlands are only 5.85 in tall, Canyons 7.1
    Two they are 2.72 in wide, Canyons, rough measurement off of mine 3.75 wide

    Are they also lower profile? Is that what you mean by narrower?

    I'm reluctant to say it's not because the last time I said that, someone suggested a $2,000 item, which was an issue.

    I'm a bit older so unless you're thinking about some esoteric metal alloy, price probably isn't an issue (crossing fingers). I don't want to be mounting or gluing tires though.
