Default Best 4wd 1/10 Dirt Tires?

I just bought the b7.41d and Iím curious what tires would work best on a dirt track. Iíve been driving a b6 on carpet but Iím moving on to the dirt track so itís a whole different world and I donít know which tires are best for dirt. I race at Thornhill and the track is outdoors but has a large roof over it.
Thanks!

Jconcepts Double D's in blue or green

Proline Holeshots in m4 or m3

These are a good all around outdoor tire but as stated the best way his to ask the locals.


Went to their website and the below is the spec tire for an upcoming race. So small pin in your answer.

Thanks for the plug!


Kristina H Glad to see you on RCTech!

For the 1/10 cars on dirt, pretty much anything works at Thornhill when they water the track... AKA Scribbles in SSLW or Clay compounds are arguably the fastest but they can be difficult to control if the track starts to dry out when the winds pick up, etc...

If you want to play it safe, then stick with a pin style tire, or you can run Scribbles up front and a pin on the rear... something like Impact or Rebars are nice.... I have a set of Rebars you can test if you'd like, just swing by my pit room across from the bathrooms and I'll get you sorted out.

Glad to see you make the shift over to dirt!
