Default Favorite Truggy wheels and tires

List your favorite truggy tires and wheels you use! Bashing, racing, whatever you prefer. I'm in the market to get a set myself (for bashing only), and want something a bit aggressive/rugged looking, so I appreciate people's feedback based on experience.

Pics welcome!

Have masher 2ks on mine with ofna half offset rims on a Jammin X1 CRT. I strictly use it for bashing.

Paid $1 on ebay(shipping was $10) for all 4 tires which were sitting on some rims for a slayer (I think)
Could tell they were never ran on seeing he never bothered gluing them to the rim

Sweet. What's the standard truggy wheel size (diameter, width) anyway? I'm new to the truggy scene, obviously.

Proline's current truggy wheel is 4" diameter. But most of the aggressive bashing tires come in sizes for monster truck wheels (orignally, truggies ran these too) which are 3.2" or 3.8". So be sure that you get the proper wheel to go with them. The newest truggy wheels are too big, and in Proline's case, the way they mount up is different too.

Proline makes a bunch of different basher tires:

IMEX does as well:

How do those mashers do on asphalt?

Pretty good actually seeing thats where I mainly run it.
They seem to have a decent amount of grip seeing the tire really doesn't slide or skid at all, like my one buggies tire does.
The turn radius probably went up a little from what an actual truggy tire does, but I can't really compare it seeing these are the only ones I've ran on it.
