    Today I bought some HPI Phlatline tires mounted on Blast Chrome wheels ( #HPI 4729) Sorry I can't figure how to put pictures on here from my iPad! They were great on the freshly paved street outside. Mounted on my Kraton running 6S 30C lipo. Price was $ 38.99 a pair.

    Hi

    You can also get Pro-Line Road Rage 2.8" tires, I know those are good tires.

    I like the Sweep racing belted tires. They don't balloon at speed. I'm trying to reach 100 mph. And cost the same as proline aka and durataxs

    There is also a duct tape mod you can find on YouTube that will give similar results with any tire.

    You might have to change to 17 mm hubs. Try going to sweep racing concepts they have a ton of diffrent tires and nice wheels to. They have some flare to them.

    I have the arrma raider blx with stock wheels and tires and while the dboots look ok there grips is terrible and clearance even worse. Any suggestions for both on and off road conditions. My local spot is a bmx track and has a gritty/sandy loose surface which builds up on the inside of the wheels and grinds away at the hubs and inner rim. So some thing a little bigger in wheel size and tire size for off road but not on road just a good grippy profile so i can pull some sick wheelies ;)

    Thanks bashers

    I'd recommend Proline Badlands - they do quite well on pretty much any terrain, especially offroad. I ran badlands in the snow on my Talion instead of Proline slingshots and still had good success.

    I would say go with the proline trenchers for off road and maybe proline bandits for on road....... I run my trenchers on and off road and they don't wear bad at all. I ride wheelies in the mud hole with trenchers!

    Those tires aren't any better than the dboots tires that come on Arrmas.
