good looking truck, what are you going to be running on that you need tires like that?

Do you run on that track that's like concrete? I think they spray it with something...

Does anyone know if there is a difference in the 2.2 buggy rear tires and a 2.2 truck tire we run on these?

the overall diameter is much larger on stadium truck tires than buggy tires.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if there was a difference, I want a set of Dirt webs for my truck but they are out of stock, yet they had the 2.2 rears for the buggys in stock. Just wanted to check before I got something that would not work.

They are for indoor carpet racing. We don't use any tire prep. Concrete floor carpet on top.

Got a set of Prolines for my new T5M Bar codes (gold) for clay man are they soft. want to also get a set of the DirtWebs once they are off back order, they are for an indoor high to med bite track that is well groomed. I was thinking of the dirt webs early when there is a lot of bite in the track, then switching to the barcodes later in the night as the track dries and gets a little dust on it. is there any other brand who makes a good similar tire to the dirtwebs that would be good early tire?

I've been running chainlinks all night long, but they water and blow off dust between each round at our track. My son runs dirt webs with some good results as well

They blow ours off as well, and at some races give it a lite spray of orange soda, it just seems that most guys end up going to a more aggressive tire later in the night, and end up doing well.

Nice looking bodies. I was about to say those look like Barrios Paints, haha. Of course they are.
