Default What tires for a really loamy track?

Talking truggy.... My guess is either Bow-Ties or I-Beams both in medium compounds. What tread am i missing? A track I frequent changed their layout and i was thinking of getting paddles. LOL

I find that my Crime Fighters LOVE a loose and loamy track.

I use 40 series Crime's on my MT when @ the track and it absolutely rips, I would assume truggy would be similar to MT.

I raced at a track a few weeks back that had up to 2" of loam in some spots. The ibeams worked well but I ended up with calibers on if you can believe it. The ibeams IMO strech out way to much on the truggy. This to me makes the truck feel very unstable.

No kidding... I'm just saying truggy tires are the next closest thing to MT tires.

A track is described as loamy if it has a chunky heavy loose surface. Not dusty but more like sandy dirt i guess.

M2 crimeys (or badlands) are my picks in truggy.
