Default Equivalent Truggy Tires

Hello all,

I am looking for tires equivalent to this for the Truggy:

Buggy On Road Tires.

I need to brreak in the engine and it is so much easier being able to do it on the road in front of my house without damaging the off road tires.

Thanks.

get these: http://www.prolineracing.com/p-293-r...t-or-rear.aspx

and you'll need a set of standard 17mm rims, these won't fit LPRs

Panther Slicks All the way...compared to any proline road tire they will treat you much better and not chunk the foam within 15 min of run time.

or you can scavenge your local track's trash bins and probably find some really worn ones for free. or just ask people at the track if they have worn tires they're willing to give. i see it ALL the time, especially from the sponsored folks. i've gotten tires, fuel etc. this way many times.
