Hello all…. Got a question. What’s the word on the best tires for the Typhon in sand? There don’t seem to be many choices but saw these on ProLine which states it’s a 17mm which is the correct size for the Typhon correct?

Paddle tires will be the best....but I used some proline hyrax 2.8 tires and they work awesome as well. They are still new, so have deep treads, but it wheelies at any speed just like on dirt.

Not sure if your Typhon can still turn with the paddles you stated. They are pretty wide and it doesn’t look they have much offset to compensate. There are a couple of sand tires (paddles) out there that are a bit smaller and work with the a Typhon (Google ‘rc sand tires’; they are about half the width of the ones you mentioned in your post).
I agree with @HZRDOS, I run Hyrax on the Mojave on both loose and hard packed sand, no problems there. But sand paddles give even more grip.
RC+sand= FUN😎
