without knowing more about the track, ask what the fast guys at the track run. they will be able to give you a better answer than anyone here will.

Default Aka

The AKA city blocks in soft compound have worked on every track and combination yet. Amazing....Get them pre mounted and they will last forever.

M2 crime fighters last forever and work great on loose surfaces. You can pick em up really cheap most places too.

+1 You can not find a more affordable priced tire than VP PROs and the wear and quality are the same as the other expensive brands.

hello there,

Im a racer from Kuwait, our track is always dry and dusty, IMHO, i would go with AKA I BEAMS in soft compund. why?
1- great tracion on loamy surfaces
2- amazing life, they seem to last forever
3- hole on tire and not on wheel (like prolines) sand will get inside the wheel and mess up the foam, tire gets heavier and unbalanced. this problem doesnt exist with AKAs
4- because i say soo JK

cheers

Ali

The AKA stuff is good, But my fav buggy tire is the Losi Eclipse (green) They are awesome and sometimes I use the Losi XBT's in the front and green eclipse in the rear. Mike Truhe gave me the top secret info in person. Try it you will be amazed I know I was. I have also recently done a comparison on tire foam, I used the same tires with the same rim and only changed the foam. I tested stock Losi foam compared to the AKA foam. The AKA foam hands down wins, It was more stable and gave better performance, I never knew how important foam was until I did the test.
