Default Let's see your tire/wheel combo

I'm in the market for new tires and wheels. I would like to see some pictures of your current setup. I'm looking for a bashing setup. I was thinking about the Proline Moabs (but am worried the weight will slow down my savage to much) or something like the Losi Zombie Maxx. State the name of the tires and wheels with your pictures. Thanks!

Got IMEX Medium Knobbies and Rims. Rims looks great and the tires are a must have in the snow. And not too
shabby on pavement too! I duct taped the insides of them so they don't balloon at high speeds either.

Thai-the setup looks good. Those tires look like they would shred the grass up.

rclynx-i like the look of the Moabs but just don't know how my stock .25 will do with the extra weight.

I'm thinking of going with this setup-Losi Zombie Maxx tires with the HPI Q6 wheels.

Default RE: Let's see your tire/wheel combo

This is my absolute favorite wheel/tire combo: Losi Zombie-Maxx on 1/2 offset Ofna/Jammin MT dish rims... Proline makes some equivalent Velocity dish rims, which you can get in yellow or black... I love this set-up cuz 1.) it's not too heavy like Big Joes or Moabs, 2.) great all-around grip for all surfaces.., and 3.) long-lasting.. (and oh yeah, 4, looks great - IMO...)





Another option could be Proline Badlands on 1/2 offset Proline Velocity dish rims(17mm).. Badlands are very popular at the moment, but they're too narrow for my taste, which 1.) doesn't look so cool IMO, and 2.) the sidewalls are so high in relation to width that the overall shape wanders - and I've got green Panther foams in there...

Nice looking trucks all. So many options for tires. I wish I had lots of money to buy different setups and more money to buy a new motor to push some of the setups...maybe someday. I'll probably go with the Losi Zombie-Maxx for tires. They seem to be best for all around purposes.

I have quite a few MMT's out there and everyone likes them..........going to have to clock one to see how fast they are some day. One of the guys that has the MMT is really tough on it and he doesn't break much. He knocked out second gear landing a flip jump with the throttle wide open..........but thats why I stock parts
