Default Anybody used any of the road tires for truggys?

Evening chaps, I've been looking into picking up some road tires for my truggy, there aren't any tracks anywhere near me and I thought they'd be great for driving in parking lots, on the street etc

Does anybody have much experience with any of them? Am I better off sticking to the off-road tires?

I've seem some Panthers, Phaltlines (which come ready mounted on wheels, but I'm not sure they'll fit my kyosho st) and one or two others, but I imagine you chaps will have a far greater knowledge of all this than me.

Thanks in advance for any info

James

I usually use a set of burnt up off road tires that are practically slicks. I havent seen any truggy on road specific tires like there are for buggys. You could always run buggy tires???

There are a few on-road truggy tires

These have some grip, where most are pure racing style slicks.

Phaltlines are the most durable and work well on cold or warm surfaces. They balloon less on full power than the panthers tires but the phaltlines run best at 0 degrees of camber or maybe .5 degrees at most or they wear down unevenly.

Thanks

Is it easy to change the camber? I think I'll order some phaltlines then. The wheels (on which the phaltlines are often premounted) comes with an HPI-fit 17mm hex fitting. Will this fit my kyosho inferno ST?
