I've been running my losi 22 2.0 dirt webs Silver and Black with proline insert and absolutely love it. Now i got xray xb4 '15 running dirt web silver and black the best tire for my buggy. I tried several tire hotbeam and proline suburbs but dirt webs is the best tire for my buggy. I order 4 pair black compound in tower hobbies but silver is out of stock. Never buy any tire except dirt web best clay tire for me.

I guess it's just one of those things that has to be tried for your track conditions. I would try it standard first, then if you need to change, the 60mm tires are easy to cut from the wheel and refoam

To do this; I use a brand new X-acto or a thin one sided razor blade and cut the inside sidewall flush with the rim. Cut it clean, fold the tire over, replace foam, and re-glue. If you take your time you will be able to do this without even noticing the tire has been cut.

Unfortunately I don't know. I will try and look into it.

They're a great front tire across all platforms.

In 2w, DW front with Barcode rear works really well for me on med/hi bite indoors

Thanks, still debating if I should mount with open or closed cell inserts.

If you're outdoors/rutted/bumpy/low traction use open cell.

For smoother med/high-bite closed cell all around OR if you need a little less twitchy steering feel, use closed cell rear with open cell in front.

What would be a good rear buggy tire for a hard packed, medium to high traction outdoor track when it gets a little too dusty for green bar codes? Would splitters be a good choice?

Exactly; Splitters would be a good choice. They seem to get better after a few runs too.

Nevermin. Just saw PW's photos a few pages back. Darn rctech mobile page search was useless on this issue.
