Default tires?

we are new to rc trucks and my boys each have rc10t4 trucks.
we dont have a lhs so we have to order online. the boys have worn out the tires and i have to buy new tires. the tires on the trucks say proline holeshots
2.2x200 on them, but when we go on line they dont say what size the tires are. they say buggy or m2 or m3. can some explane to us what we shud be looking for? i have to buy 8 tires so i want to get it right the first time.

any tire on there that says 2.2 beside it will work for your trucks.

2.2 is the correct size. Holeshots are a good track tire. M2 is a hard compund tire and M3 is soft tires good for racing. You will need foam too like Trinity Bomb 1 grey foam. Also will need CA glue to mount tires to rim.

Perhaps call in your order, or call ahead of time, to make sure, tell them what ya got. You don't want buggy tires.

I'm showing my age a little, perhaps this isn't an issue now, but back in the day there were both 2.0 and 2.2 rear buggy tires. ProLine were the guys behind the 2.2, everybody else was doing 2.0, they were dominant for a while, then everybody else caught up. Early 90s. Not sure if anyone still calls buggies 2.2, but it's possible.

Red and pink are losi's(? i believe) compouds much like prolines M2 and M3 compounds. One is soft one is hard, all i know is proline so i am not going to even try to guess which is which. You just need to buy 2.2" truck tires and rims. Dont worry about the offset, and tapers, probably talking about the taper pin tires. You dont sound like a racer more like a basher, I would go with proline dirt hawgs, or proline bowties. Both will last a very long time and you can run on many different surfaces with them.

losi's red compound is for an outdoor track and bashing. alright for some looser dirt

the pink compounds (losi) are mostly made for clay tracks from what i know, thats what i run
