O I like them...True, but they won't break. There's a video on youtube of a guy running them on ice. I have em as well. Great traction
Got some Terrain Crushers coming. They don't balloon.O I like them...
I'm gonna tape my Trenchers..O I like them...

They balloon just like a Top Fuel..and it's like having overdrive..I'm a noob too, but like the man said..... 70MPH on dinner plates....The handling suffers terribly. And at some point the rubber will reach it's breaking point and the tire will tear apart. On the other side of this, and there are limits to this, but ballooning tires make it go faster. Larger circumference = longer footprint for one rotation = travel further for 1 rotation of the wheel. When I first put on the Terrain Crushers I was disappointed at the speed loss, but WOW with the handling. Ballooning tires will also help the car flip, while airborne. The gyroscopic force of the tires is what flips it,. There is more gyro force created with a set of ballooning stocks that there is on a set of Terra crushers.
Well anything is going to have a larger turning radius at speed.
I think ballooning is a preference and driving style based thing. Some ppl like it, some don't. No one would recommend - really any of the ProLine 40 series tires for speed runs - they are -great- offroad & bashing tires though. The X's have wicked traction - I have more diff issues when I run them than other tires I have . Turning radius difference is partly due to the offset of the wheel vs stock wheel - not really the tires fault. Add to that the increased traction (vs stock) you end up with the rear hooking up more and taking weight off the front end further impacting the turn. I like the stock v1 tires for some stuff - just enough traction but just not enough to where you can get a nice power slide going (on asphalt)
