Tire Help

Hi guys,

I have the following choice of tires and I'm wondering which would give me the best starting-point.
  • IFMAR Stud, Red
  • Inside Job
  • Hole Shot
  • Bow Tie

From this list, which would you recommend for both 2WD and 4WD?

well since i race 2wd i would deff recommend the bow tie t tires. i use them on mi st and i race on loose dirt and they get awsome grip and they work amazingly on packed dirt. -Wes

If you are planning on racing here, the bowties and ifmar studs have worked well but the schumachers have just recently proved to be the tire of choice...we have a very large order coming in we hope the end of this next week.

tire help....

well in my honest opinion I run my B44 at fast cats and I find that holeshots front and rear are the way to go for me anyways...the buggy hooks up really good with those but the only down side is that they only last a few races and thats it....I am going to try the schumachers...they look crazy... I also use holeshots for my T3 aswell...hook's up great but does not last long........
