Default ??? longest lasting 2.2 road rubber ???

Hello all,
I'm looking for road tires for my Rustler. After only about 4 tanks of fun I'n down to the foam linners on the rear end
In your opinion what are the longest lasting 2.2 road tires that YOU have used and been most happy with ?
Thanks to all that answer.


So far these have done not to bad but still burn down to fast

I have been running my Road Rages (By Pro-Line) on my Rustler with an O.S. engine for over a gallon now... And I do not take it easy on them either. I constantly do donuts and burnouts and those are sure to run their life down. Don't let that statement fool you though; these are grippy tires. I can only do burnouts and donuts and things like that in sand and the like (sand actually takes tire life away faster than the road does and I have still gone over a gallon with them and I'm still going at them!).

The only disadvantage for me of these tires is that they are directional. So once they start to wear, you'll have to unglue them from the wheel and mount them on another wheel to get even wear. Unless you don't mind having the tire facing the opposite direction of course.

schumacher venom road tyres are the best, they give my xtr3e lots of grip and not alot of wheel spin and that is too fast

I gave up on road rages. I'm not really the sort that likes dounuts. If you want grip go for blades or edges in the front and gladiators in the rear.

Just get Proline DirtHawgs...I'm serious! They stick as good as road tires, are bigger profile for better top end, they expand like ****s so it's like having a "CVT" Continuously Variable Transmission, and they last freakin forever and when u finally run the treads down real low they become the greatest street tire ever! I have been rocking the same pair for 8 years on my GT! I have low profile M2 RoadHawgs and I hate them. You have to gear your car down like a **** to get any speed and they traction roll your car like no tomorrow.

rember the the longer the tire lasts( the harder the rubber compound) the less traction you are going to have so you are going to be spining then for a while if you go wot

Hi

If you can find them I would say get Racer Edge Diamond tread street tires. They have great traction and are long lasting. IMO these are the best tires you can get for street driving.

as for the Racer Edge Diamond tread street tires i got mine off ebay but i have found that the HPI super radial is a great street tire i have 1-1.5 tanks on them and they look new a little tread loss but still a lot of life in them and the hook good enuf on myrc10gt that it will pull the tires off the ground so i would say they hook good just my 2c
