    When they are worn out get a set of Bad Lands and you'll wonder why you bought Trenchers. That's what I did. Don't get me wrong Trenchers are great but for off road there is nothing like the bad Lands. They hook soo hard I had to relearn to drive my truck with the first set.

    I looked at the badlands, but for the soil we have here in Texas, the Trenchers looked a bit more suited for it. We'll see. I got them for $25 a pair! Clearance bin at Hobbytown!

    Trenchers are a nice all terain and work great in the dirt but pro mod Steve is right. Badlands in the dirt kick a~~.

    I completely agree with what you have stated here! You are a quite the knowledgeable gentleman. Badlands are an amazing tire! Here is a video of Badlands in action!

    I just got my trenchers last week and they are great. I originally planned on getting badlands but I found 4 practically brand new pre-mounted trenchers for $40 on ebay and I snapped them right up. I had them out in the grass and I could see immediately they were a better tire than the stockers I was using, but I still regretted not getting the badlands. That all ended yesterday when I ran it on the road for a whole pack to compare the temps to grass driving. I was blown away. It was like it was glued to the road and it really seemed much faster than it has been. I would stick to purely on road driving but it is a pain because if I slip off the road 6 inches or more I am either in high grass the slash can't get out of or it falls down a 5 foot drop into tons of high weeds. Got to love country roads.

    I actually prefer my trenchers over badlands except in loose dirt, where the badlands are undoubtedly better. Badlands will work anywhere off-road, but as others have mentioned, they require a different driving style.

    Nothing wrong with the trenchers at all. Good all around tire as I have them myself and run them most of the time but if I'm in dirt, on go the badlands they are amazing and really dig into the dirt to give you grip.

    We are on vacation in Galveston, TX and we went to the beach today. The Trenchers were amazing! The beach was mostly washed up seaweed so there was some crazy terrain. They handled everything really well. Beach bashing is awesome!

    On loose dirt badlands are king, on harder dirt covered surfaces trenchers will do a better job.
    If the bad lands dont have a loose surface to till there is less tire to ground contact.
    I run a few sets of both, IMO they both shine on their purposed terrain.

    Enjoy your trenchers! Did you get the Trecher X or the normal Trencher? Perfect tire for dirt as the Badlands are just give too much grip IMO. If you have pictures post them please! Thanks.

    I have mashers on desperado wheels on the slash MT and man they are awesome, no sign of wear and tear at all, and this is after hard bashing for the past year on my 2wd pede.
