Default What Tyres To Buy?

I am currently using 1/8 buggy crimefighter tyres and they have lasted me around 5 race meets so I was just wondering what tyres donít ware out very quickly.

For 8th scale buggy I have been running M3 crimes and they have worn quite well IMO. If you like the traction from those but want a little more tire life maybe try m2 compound if you're not already running those. Last season the only tires I ran were Werks W's. They lasted the whole season and I sold them to another racer at the end of the season and he still uses them. They were medium or med/soft compound I think. Those would be my suggestions.

+1 on the above... If you like the crimefighter performance? Stick with them!
Just change compounds...

If you run M2 crimefighters then switch to XTR....
I personally love the xtr tire compound!
Especially now that you can get crimefighters, bow ties, and holeshots in XTR now!

I got the W's from my lhs. They ordered in a bulk shipment for our Pro Series so they were a good deal. They are decent tires traction wise but by no means the most hooked that I have run. They should last quite well assuming you run them only at the track.

You can buy the Werks W tires here:

Medium- http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=2513
Soft- http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=2512

I run CrimeFighters on my truggy and they still have good tread from when I got them last fall. I have never tried the werks tires but I think it is worth giving them a try.

Holy cow... can you send us some of your dirt for our local track please?

2 races MAX are what I get out of anything but the Werks tires... they last a long time, but they aren't as hooked up.
