+1 on the VP Pro tires. They get unbelievable traction and are priced great as well. You also get a lot of runtime on a set. Definitely try them for yourself and see what you think. The buggy cutoffs 802 look like a bowtie but they seem to hook on every track I've run on and stick to the track way better than bowties. As far as glued or unglued that depends on the racers in your area.

Default tires of choice

I like to run proline crimefighters & bow-tie's and some occasions holeshots on buggy & truggy and I much prefer the premounted.

Panther AKA JC Proline there all good tire's...check with the local's as its near impossible to tell which tire's will work best unless you are there personally and can test thing's yourself.

Let me know if you prefer remounted or if you prefer to glue them yourself. Also the compound (M2, M3, soft, super soft med) you prefer. Thanks and I really appreciate your help.
visit tracks (on road, off road and carpet) within 50 mile radius and see whats working for people and stock those tires. That should give you a pretty good idea.

Proline tires offer moret traction than AKA, but they also WEAR a LOT FASTER, I like AKA, I don't think that there is a tire out there right now that offers traction and life span like the AKA. (Proline does have better traction, but a set of tires per main???? it is steap)

Another vote for VP-PRO tires. They are way less money ,last a long time and hook up just as good(even better in some cases).Some guys have no problem paying $70 for a set of buggy tires that wear out in 1 or 2 races. But, a lot cant afford that.The fact that the quality is so good ,they last longer and are way cheaper is no brainer to me.

I like calibers out doors and gris irons in doors on the truggy. On the buggy green eclipse out doors and grid irons in doors. City blocks are always a back up that work well on most tracks and sometimes city blocks in the back and i beams up front.
