Monster truck tires and wheels are confusing,MT,MTR,40 series. I prefer running the 1/2 offset wheels, however I have several sets of 0 offset wheels, I think they perform better on tight tracks. To keep them from rubbing I used the kyosho ball cups Gene talks about.
If you're gonna buy them online, just get them from Gene, you know you'll get the right stuff. Pooldoc

MTR is a compound.

MT has bigger side walls mostly used in Monster Truck MTR is more suitable for truggy and is what most top racers use i only run the MTRs or the new LPRs

annie i think your refering to the XTR buggy compound

Yes I am using a Radical .28 right now.

MTR = Monster Truck Racing
MT = Monster Truck (bashing)
Maxx = T-maxx and Savage tires
LPR = Low Profile Racing (the new truggy tires)

the MTR's also have a bunch of internal ribbing to prevent balooning them on power,

Ive found that on some tracks the MTR's are faster, more consistant and easier to drive than the LPR's. but again it depends on the track.

If Maxx is for the T-Maxx and Savage, are the proline Maxx 1/2" offset rims the best ones to get? Or is there another set of 1/2" offset that will be better.

Annie,

Either that or loose tracks. Ive found that the MTR's provide a bit more traction than that of the LPR.

The LPR's work great on high bite tracks, however.

do you think the 621t will work well in the matrix or is it not enough for the weight of this truck?

Yeah it should be fine, I have a team driver, (Chris Systma) that uses the Werks .21 in his TR FRE and he gets around the track very well. The Matrix Truggy is gears low enough, that a .21 will work just fine in it.
