Default Pro-Line Dirt Works vs. Pro-Line Dirt Hawg II...

I am looking at adding a new set of tires to my arsenal. I have narrowed it down to these two options from Proline. My only problem is, I cannot decide which one to go with. I do not have any well stocked hobby shops nearby where I can see them first hand, and I do not know any other local bashers to ask, so I thought I would come here to get some feedback and opinions.

Pro-Line Dirt Works vs. Pro-Line Dirt Hawg II

If anyone has run these two tires from Proline I would love to hear what you have to say. I am looking for something that gets good traction in loose to hard soil, but also has a long wear time. For what ever it's worth, they will be used on an Associated GT2 RS/RTR truck.

Just curious as to what those that have used either or both of them think about these two tire options.

Thanks for any feedback/thoughts.

I can tell you that I push those 2 proline tires heavily at my store. I mainly deal with first timers and bashers, not a ton of racers, so I stock both tires regularly.

Here is how I look at the tires,


Dirt Hawgs: Great overall tire. Long tread wear great basher tires. IMO better for street use


Dirt-works: With the smaller lug, may be better suited for looser dirt, barkdust etc. If you want something for more offroad than onroad, I would pick this one.
