Hi guys as above what is the best combo of wheels/tyres for durability? they need to be separate so i can belt them as most of my un belted tyres have ripped right off!
recommendations please, thanks
for ashing... i would say any truggy parts that are cheap and easy to get hold of and that is pretty strong.
i have a caster k8t the parts i get from BMM and they are dirt cheap to what the AE and Losi parts are.
so that would be my sugestion if you are bashing
raceing... then i would say have a look at what is mostly raced at your club so if it goes tits up and you do not have any spares then you can borrow from a fellow member.
for pure bashing... and long life... go get some xtm grinders and fit them to hobao rims with the channle in them as wont rip off and are great on grass
hong nor sabre x3,speed power, bullit power.dx3r smd.
herts nitro models for all you need and lots you dont but still good to look at them.
for pure bashing proline badlands tyres
rims, honestly bowens are thick as **** as should last longer than the badlands, and they will last an age.
grinders are good, but i don't think they'll last long if you ever run on a carpark or dirt given their lifespan on dry astro aint all that.
Thanks guys, Escobar can you link me to those rims? I can't find them online

Most of the truggy guys I know use HPI Shredders on astro (for bashing) and keep their grinders for race days.
Was at my local track the other evening and a brushless truggy guy who had been wheelying all the way down the straight eventually stripped a 17mm drive hex in one of the wheels so I would take people's advice on here regarding wheel choice (I don't know what type they were, sorry).
