    For street Rustler rigs I've heard the xo-1 tires work great, plus they look cool. If you're considering the Anacondas I'd look more towards a Proline or J-Concepts onroad wheel, in my experience anything Proline or J-Concepts has far more traction than any Traxxas tire. Traxxas tires are more for looks than anything, and since it has "Traxxas" stamped on it they can charge you twice what it's worth..

    Funny, my anacondas that I've run on my street Rusty usually had loads of traction once they got some heat in them. They gripped like mad to the point that throttle control was critical to keep from flipping the truck backwards when launching from a stop. My biggest issue is they balloon like a top fuel drag slick running full throttle on 3s power.

    Check out the GRP Gandinis. Steel belted and wear really well. They have them in a couple diffetent compounds. I have the middle grade compound and they stick really good. And the prices on them seem to be pretty reasonable now. Also, have heard a lot of great things about JConcepts glocs.
