Default Which tires, rims for mbx5t?

I want to upgrade from my old stock ones. Seems ike they are also wider than everyone is running now. What would be some good pairing ideas? Will also want to go with closed cell foams. Thanks guys!

pretty much the entire line of Pro Line tires...the 5t used/uses the old Monster Truck tire/rim. With the new types of tires offered by Pro Line, Aka, and others out there all you will need to do is look them up and decide which tread type you like. I myself find the AKA CityBlocks or the Proline Caliber are the "ALL AROUND" tire for pretty much any track.

+1, aka truggy tires i think i-beams soft are the best on the rear at least when the track is dry and dusty with some loose dirt !

city blocks are good though but suck on that kind of condiction if you ask me .

i tryed jc soft crosshairs and they wont hook up for me even when the track is moist .

those calibers will work...you just need to decide if you want m2 or m3 or I think they are doing m4 now...but I would thin m4s would be too soft

m2 is Med compound, m3 is soft compound(most commonly used) and m4 is super soft or extreme soft I think on the M4 part

+1 on the Calibers. Holeshots too if the track is a little harder packed. I liked the badlands for tearing up the backyard. Neat tire.

hope you got them in half offset. MBX5T uses half offset and the MBX6T uses zero.....

The mbx5-t uses O offset rims, the car comes stock with extended wheel hexes (they are even longer then the mbx6-t ones).
