The Geolander tires are pretty good. I ran them for awhile and they are easily better than stock. I'm running Proline Badlands 2.2 now and I think they are one of the, if not the, best tires out there for the xs. You will need to drop your gears for the badlands, but not for the Geolander. I run 24/60 on mine with no troubles.

As far as chargers, I use a Duratrax Onyx 235. It has worked great for me
