Personally, I find the bow ties and crimefighters do not last long. I prefer badlands, they are a awsome all terrain tire. Dirt, grass, concrete, it handles them all very well and they last the test of time. Only crappy thing is they are small MT tires, they only come in the 3.2 size. If you are going to stay on the grass and dirt, the crimefighter or bowties will last, but if they touch concrete they will disappear before you know it.

Another vote for the Badlands. They're modeled after a 1:1 MX tire, so they'll do great in all terrains, especially dirt. It's a great bashing tire that mounts on super easy to find and cheap "T Maxx/Savage" sized rims.

aye another hit for badlands, i run them on my evader and the ONLY time i've broken them loose, is on wood floors concret and on my stone sidewalk, (not little stones like big 2'x2' sheets), and they can get a little loose on my hard packed dirt road i plan to never run them on pavement, in the grass dirt loose stone, leaves mud, snow, and sand that they have run in, they've been amazing, while in sand the acceleration isn't the same as grass they hook up really well, in grass i've ripped up pieces to expose dirt, they just hook up on anything off road they never have lost lateral grip on anything except the exceptations, and they just shoot the car forward,

keep in mind this is all with a VERY overpowered 1/10 2wd truck that prob weighs in a 4lbs, so they are really tested in terms of lat grip and pulling out of corners and in sand and such... and they do better than my 2.2 bowties and holeshots ever have done, thier only downfall is the tall sidewall tho thats more 2.2 specific

Proline needs to make some 40 series Badlands. The MT size Badlands look too small on a Savage IMO. I like 40 series Mulcher's, but they are discontinued. You may be able to find a set at your LHS still, but I doubt it. The tires in this pic are worn down quite a bit from running on pavement with them. Stick to grass or dirt with them and they last a long time.

If I had a dollar for everytime I cried about that over the past year I would have a gold plated Flux. LOL
I hope sometime in the near future someone at proline will recieve divine inspiration and decide a 40 series badlands would make money.

LOL nice pic actually had me laughing.

Almost think RCU should automatically close threads after it hasn't been posted to for about a month (like a few forums I seen has) so these zombie threads would stop resurfacing
