Default Hi which tires would be better for clay Proline switch or Traxxas pro responce 1/8 ?

I have a slayer pro and I was curious which tire would work better for a Slayer Pro 4x4 on clay SC? RC Planet only has two decent tires for Slayer and not sure which is better Proline Beadlocks with soft switch or Traxxas Response Pro 3.8 1/8 scale white dish wheels and short knobby soft tires? What else would help handling on slippery clay? Thanks Again!

Most do not use beadlocks because they are heavy. 1/8 dish wheels are usually outlawed. The Traxxas tires are for a Revo, aren't they? Pick a short course tire. RCPlanet has more than you list.

Check out Proline Calibers or AKA City blocks. Nice all around track tire.

Default Those tires are 12mm and i have the pro edition which has 14mm.

Is it easy to convert to 12mm or is there some 14.mm sc rims? Thanks for your help!
