Hey guys I am doing some research for a future project and I need you guys input. I would like to get opinions on what everyone is running in your area for tires for buggy and truggy. What would you say is the most popular tire being used in your area? Thanks in advance.

Truggy in our area seams to be I-beams, crimefighters, and city blocks.

Buggy is calibers and most types of "pin" tire

You cant go wrong with a soft AKA Gridiron, or Proline Holeshot at tracks like SRS and at other tracks in AZ it is a Bow Fighter combo that works for most. Proline Crime fighters in the front V2 M3 with the outside and inside spike cut down or in a 45 and with V2 M3 Bowties in the rear or Losi Red or Silver XBT up front and Eclipse in the rear. For Truggy Proline VTR 4.0 Calibers work most places and VTR 4.0 Holeshots. I also have good luck with J-concept Subcultures with the center small pin cut out for more forward bite

Buggy Losi Eclipse and XBT up front if I need more steering. Red when its hot and Green when its cold. The Sweep tires work well too but I have only run them 1x. In the winter grid irons or if its hard backed and blue groove.

Truggy Calibers usually, sometimes city-ibeam combo and either grid irons or 7's when its hard backed and blue grooved.

AKA will not pick a set because I use different tires for different tracks and condition, but AKAs are dope. I dont know whats going on with proline tires for truggy.

Truggy - AKA IBeam Med is a great all-round tire here in Denmark.

Buggy - Mostly AKA CityBlock Soft - Kinda works everywhere.

Buggy only over here in Italy and Crimefighters in M2 compound are the hot set-up. A few of us have switched to Sweep racing tires, but opinions still vary on them.
