Default Best front 1/10th tires?

What are the best front tires for a 1/10 2wd truck(electric) on a hard pack track?
Proline blades?

Proline Edge?

i guess depends on how hard or sticky the track is?

In east tennessee most of the tracks are red clay which can get pretty hard if packed down nicely.

I run step pins rear and blades/step pins front on our tracks

and if it gets pretty try i'll put on some proline holeshots..

my buddy is using the first link the hybrid tire and it works good unless it's really tacky then the clay will stick to the pins really good and not clean out well..

Depends on lots of factors, is it hi bite? Dry or moist? tight twisty or open layout?

Pretty much, ask around and see what the "fast guys" are running.

On a hi bite usually moist indoor clay track around here we usually run Losi Pink Tapers, Losi Red 8 Ribs, and rarely Losi Pink Directionals/Pro-Line Edges. That is when we are not running slicks all around!
