They're a good all terrain tire. They do ok on the street too.

I have a set and they also have ofna medium molded foams. They are great light tires. They hook up very well on street and dirt but on the grass they do slide easily. If you get the tires switch to molded foams before you put them on rims because the stock foams are really soft and will make the tires balloon easily.

I bought a set of these and they're a good all purpose tire. You can use the HPI foams, Nitro Venom's right they'll balloon.. Thicker diff oil took care of that problem..
