SO what's HOT & what's not?

Post by realsickclown » Sat Oct 12, 2013 1:57 pm

Ok  I am wondering if there are any new tires on the market 3.2 size I've noticed the savage needs a new pair of shoes. I know what's out there id rather ask for real feedback than a sales pitch.
Almost forgot, some more info: mostly be for off road use with just as much on the road, savage XL with 25 TVP's  Also trying to keep the rotational mass low as possible.

Oh that's right , the badlands will look sweet on the shorter chassis. How do they were on the pavement?

I've found that the badlands wear quickly on pavement. IMO the best basher tire is the stock GT2 tires. I know most hate them but I love them. Another good option is the hpi Dirtbonz.

Dirtbonz are extremely light and great handling. I'm with LL stock gt2 are about the best basher tire IMO.

Bowties are also my favorite I have a set still in package brand new and two other sets mounted. Only downfall to them is they wear quickly on asphalt

How about pure off road tyres? I run grass or hard clay with lots of loose debris on top.
Basically aussie bushland.
