What you want is XTM Grinders
They do not mount on all rims, so get Proline VTR rims and they mount straight up, or you can trim the bead to get them mounted on other truggy rims.

Grinders give masses of grip, over here in the UK that is what all people run on truggy.

The LRP VTEC Harakiri tires are good aswell on grass and astro turf.

Hi,
I in this topic too. Is it correct that AKA Wheels and Inserts will fit the Schumacher tires?

Oh that sounds good. What inserts your want to use. I thought AKA red is fine. But maybe the Schumacher fits better inside the tires.
Ist their a huge difference between the Aka and the Pro-Line Wheel when you compare the outside diameter?

Ok, why no AKA inserts? Iím using Schumacher Inserts in my 1/10 Buggy. They are working very well with the Schumacher Mini Dart. But in my opinion they look not very durable for longtime using and they are not pre-foarmed like the Aka and other closecell inserts.

Hi 1/8 IC Fan,

thanks for this information. The Duratrax Xcons looks very similar to the Tourex X300. When our track is dry they work really well, but in wet conditions it could be a little bit better. I will test a few tires next session.

We have run the Proline Badlands before, as has E. Boots. Usually when the track is slick / muddy these are a sure bet. Work great at my local track.

They are the Badlands 3.2 1132-00

May only be found on e-bay perhaps.

You can run run them without cutting the corners. The 1/10scale foams are the same and work great. After sometime the foram looks like the tire shape.
