Hi there richard I'm currently running the summit tires and beadlocks and really like them. The only thing i would suggest is straping them so they dont expand when at speed.Hope this helps.

if you're looking for awesome big tires, I've been looking at the HPI terra pins. I think standard savages look great with them....
good video showing them off:

Sure do got a perdy mouth!

I don't like the terra pins. The side wall is to soft. To me it's like driving on four balloons.

four balloons is what this thread is about, haha. Have you seen summit tires are any speed above 20? wobbly balloons (taping might help, as stated above)
