Alternate Tyres For King Cab?

Recommended Posts

Medium (see below)...I'm really surprised. I ran it around on my front yard a bit in a spot mostly dirt and patchy grass and a couple runs on the street but mostly the dirt. Compared to the Pro-lines these things are really wimpy!

You are right this should not be the big challenge for the tires. So we have to find other alternatives. Some days ago I wrote an email to the proline customer service and asked them if they will reproduce the dirt paws or the trac-ta-gators or make some other tires with big spikes and they answered that they will ask the R&D department and will inform me when they have more information. So lets see. Maybe we be in luck.

If you want some Gators there are a couple shops in Australia that appear to have them in stock. Probably ship to you no problem.

Thanks a lot for that hint. My google searches didn't show me these shops. Don't know why because I also tried the production numbers. Will keep an eye on them. At the moment two sets are on the way from Japan. They should arrive end of January or beginning of February.

WOW, the BEEF is with us again. I have a set of Tractagators on some BF wheels, need to get that one running.

Yesterday I mounted two of the IMEX tires on the rear wheels of a spare chassis I have got and when I finished mounting the original Tamiya front wheels I saw something lying on the floor. Two of the Spikes of the IMEX tires fell of during mounting. I think they are really just for the shelf.

I am not sure if they are old because normally when the rubber gets old it also gets hard. Maybe this could depend on the rubber compound. But the tires are really soft a bit harder than jelly. :wacko:

First, its literally impossible to find anything similar in looks to stock MR tires/tyres that will have any durability, pins turn to nubs FAST!!

These are what I use for certain conditions.  All these trucks are runners equipped with appropriate tires/tyres.

Left side - Proline Hawgs, bashing and tarmac | Right side - Imex Dawgs, wear fast but similar to original MR tires, occasional run on Grass or loose dirt.

Also, a pic of Losi racing tire/tyres on the right side used on Stadium Blitzer.  For hard packed clay tracks.

The Proline Hawgs look great. I think they would also fit the MB, BF and Mountaineer/Mountain Rider or the Bruiser.

I have Pro-Line Gladiators on the rear and Edge's on the front. I've been wanting to get a pair of Dirt Hawg II to try on the back.

I have proline trac ta gators and dirt paws. Would like to try some gladiators.

Proline made some awesome 2.2 pin tyres back in the day, shame most of them are impossible to get hold of again.

They would be great for all 2.2 truck wheels.  The BF and the retro 3speeds would look cool!
