Default Truggy tires, Whats available and whats good

Hi im new to truggy racing and im struggling to find good truggy tires, just want to know what is good and whats not. Ive always been a proline fan but they dont have any tires listed specifically for the truggy.

Thanks

the proline VTRs and LPRs are truggy wheels and tires but they still list them as monster truck tires. almost all tires now are for truggy. HotBodies tires last forever, pink compound with AKA grooved foams and AKA or HB or OD wheels works perfect and last forever.... i run VP Pro tires now.

Go to amainhobbies.com and browse the selection. What's good depends upon where you want to drive.

Jconcepts offers some nice truggy tires and wheels as well (spoked wheels are an option too). I've actually found that prices on their site are often better than retailers. Google 'em.

AKA wheels and tires. A set of city blocks and a set of I beams should set you up to race just about any surface, in my experience.

My new tyres arrived today i bought Proline caliber VTR 4.0" M2 offroad 1:8 truck tyres part number 9032-01 for my truggy that ive just bought

Ive bought the wrong ones as im using inferno st-rr wheels and the tyres are to big for the rims.

It says nothing on the add bout what size they are so i assumed they would fit
i bought them from amainhobbies.com and heres the add

What should i of bought that would fit my rims in proline?

Maybe i have the wrong rims, they fit my savage tyre.

The Proline VTR tires only fit Proline VTR rims. The Proline VTR seriesuse a buggy style lip design and won't fit the typical LPR style rims like the Inferno rims. If you want to use your STRR rims, you need something like the following.
