Default Off Road 1/10 Truck Tires

Any suggestions on a good rear tire for a 1/10 electric truck (XXX-T) that will work on grass. The tires that work fine on dirt just do not seem to have enough grip on grass.

thanks,

tom ...

I have an XXT, which is probably a bit different. but depending what kinda grass you have and its hight and thickness, I cant get my tires to hit the ground solidly... without raising the truck through much larger tires, your not ever gonna get real great traction... atleast I havent been able to.

good luck with whatever route you take.

Cool, I needed this information. Good thing that I already put Gladiators in my shopping cart.

Can you get away with other tires in the grass has just been cut low? Our club track will be groomed on a lawn, with portable wooden jumps.

Thanks,

Thanks, because I didn't know what "steppins" were. Now I can see it.

What would be recommended for front wheels on grass?

Who makes Step Pins? Are Pro-line Dirt Paws basically the same thing?

Go with a tread that is in a compound that doesn't fold over. Usually a harder compound. I believe tracgators or something like that from proline has really agressive studs.

You could also try lugnuts if they still make them. M2 compound or harder.

IF you can find pro-line lugnuts in a hard compound that would be great. Only reason I would prefer them over step-pins is that step-pins wear quicker. I've had the tractagators on a T3 before and they were unbelievable on grass but too much traction for me and the power I was running, the truck just flipped backwards all the time. Basically anything with large pins will work well.

Whatever you get, get a hard compound because it will actually help in grass and best of all, less wear.

I would try some Panther studs in soft or medium soft. They have giganitc staight pins very similar to what guys use in the UK on their grass tracks. Although I'm sure step pins would work good as well, probably Losi silvers would be the best (pro-line only makes their in M3).
