Default Truggy tires for bashing

I am putting together a Jammin truggy, it will only be used for bashing, mainly on dirt, then some on grass.

Any suggestions on a type of tire? soft/med/hard?

Thanks for the help

Ofna has some pretty gnarly classic monster treads.

Otherwise, AKA Hard CityBlocks work pretty well on any surface and will last forever.

The Losi XXT is also a reasonable choice and I'm sure there's plenty of cheap sets floating around where guys don't use them from the Race Rollers.

Here you go, Proline Badlands 3.8 on Proline VTR rims (perfect fit).
(Just replace the Revo w/ a real truggy )
Theses things will rip trenches in anything!

Default MT Treads

The badlands look mean!

Anything with a more MT looking tread?

I'm going to slap them on the jc rulex most likely

Thanks for the input

Those are the current Badlands w/ Traxxas style bead on VTR rims. They fit perfectly, don't even need to stretch. Both tires and rims are currently available.

The newer "Traxxas style" bead (or AKA evo bead) is just like the 1/8 buggy beads, not like the older 3.7" LPR style w/ a channel on the rim. I used the stock foams and belted the tires w/ duck tape before mounting. Almost no ballooning.
