Best "onroad" tires for Savage

Post by selder » Tue Nov 10, 2009 7:57 pm

I'm planning to buy some onroad tires for my Savage Flux.
But there are too much trees to see the forest :/

I would like to wrap them around MAXIMIZER 1731 BEADLOCK BEAD LOCK 17mm 17 mm WHEELS.

Can someone point me in the right direction of a brand and model of onroad tires?

thx in advance!

Not sure if you already bought some, but I have Proline Road Rage 40 series tires (belted) mounted on Axial beadlocks. They give me steady runs of 65+ MPH.
Work best in hotter weather too.

My buddy has had the best results with the HPI Phaltlines, low profile, no roll and quite grippy. Ghost, do you have any radar or gps runs of that 65mph? is it in a savage, I would love to see a savage going that fast  :D

Thanks for the advice, but I kinda gave up the idea of running the savage on asphalt ... she told me she'd rather run offroad :)

I had issues with the Road Rages sliding from side to side. The center line was never in the center.

Ah the 100mph flux tire guy showed up here. With those 1/5 wheels what speeds are you consistently running?

Found them at DDM also

http://www.davesmotors.com/fg6418-06_3

The square hexs are $7 a pair.

Id like to know how much they weigh. 5th .scale wheels are heavy. Not woth doing IMO.

If you wantde big onroads that wont balloon and have killer grip, you could get the Hostile slicks with the Baja conversion. Still have the weight issue though.

The Phatlines are great for 50mph Savages. If you plan on going faster then that, X01 wheels are the king. Theyre a little small for a normal Savage, but if your Savy is faster then 60, its not a normal savy anyway.

Hi 1/5 on road grp gandini weight is 14.1 oz

Hostile should be good too but they have long lateral wall so they are more heavier for sure !

I used to live in miami florida where we have a nice flat open road to reach very good speed with RCs almost in every corner ! I have an 1/8 ofna dirt oval that I reach 127.5 mph ! I build that savage to try to reach 100 mph with the mamba system 2200 kv /6s. I just moved to California last month and I didnt have the time to try to find the right spot to try it ! I know any savage with the right tires and good power system can reach 100 mph !
Most people think the savage is too heavy to reach 100 mph but they dont know the 1/8 fastes car in the world is an ofna gtp 146 mph and the weight is 13.05 lbs.

I really like how you filled the big gap in the front ! I must do something like that That was a great idea !!!!!

If you want something durable that doesn't baloon and handles precisely, there are not too many options.


XO-1 tires: durable, precise handling, belted thus no balooning, traction is okay. Small size, if you plan to change between onroad and offroad tires regularly you'll have to change gearing as well everytime.

Phaltlines: not durable, traction is okay, sidewalls are too soft, you will grind on the rim all the time. They baloon. The Plastik of the HPI rims is cheap and not durable. Mine were completely shredded in under 10 packs.

Proline Roadrage: Never owned them, but I think they have too high sidewalls for precise handling. After touching them in a store, they seem way too soft for precise handling and they will baloon.

Proline Roadrage 3.8 40 series: Never tried them or felt them in person, but they have lower sidewalls, maybe worth a try

Foam-Tires: Never owned them, but I think you'll shred them within a few packs with a heavy car like a Savage. In my opinion good for speedruns only where you don't drift or slide around.

1/5 scale onroad touringcar tires: A little bigger and wider than XO-1 tires, very durable, very good traction, very precise handling, belted thus no balooning. You'll have to change gearing because of small size.

1/6 scale buggy onroad tires: Diameter about the same as Phaltlines/Roadrages, but narrower. very good traction, very precise handling, belted, thus no balooning.

How fast have you ran your flux on 6s with those wheels? Im curious as they weigh more than big joes and 20g less than trenchers.

I will say this, if one wants a great onroad wheel and is not looking for stupid speed then yes I would try the 1/5 onroad wheels. The X0-1 are only worth a darn when there at a temp of 119F+ otherwise they suck for traction. I have yet to run the BSR 35shore wheels but Nic Case swears there suited for speed above 100.
