    Hi folks,

    So I've been running the Trencher's on my Kraton for a while now and on 6S they balloon mad crazy and the glue would actually come loose after a while haha. Aside from this set of prolines I own a set of SRC belted offroad tires aswell. They are balloon prove but provide a bit less grip and protection against larger jumps.
    I'm planning on taping the Trencher's from the inside soonish though.

    However I'd like your thoughts on the best tires for high speed use without having to tape or thread them.

    Belted tires are pretty rare for monster trucks. However you can find some SRC tires like the Terrain Crushers. They just don't have that much grip compared to the Badlands...

    I've been running Backflips. Great grip and they don't balloon all that bad.

    Try 1:5 Wheels like that:

    The negative point is that you´ll need a 24mm hex. I did made an adapter from 17mm -> 24mm and homemade nuts.

    Backflips are back in stock at Tower. Even though I signed up for email notification, I never got one. Just happened to notice it while looking for something else tonight.

    It was kinda weird.....when I noticed they were back in stock, they were listed as "limited quantities". I put off ordering a pair till about a week later and it said nothing about low stock. Then a few days after ordering, it went back to low stock.

    Kinda sucks, I ordered mine a week ago and I live about 2 hours from Tower. When I finally got UPS notice, they got sent to PA. Guess they got them re-routed and they'll be here tomorrow.

    How do you like the backflips on the nero vs the stock tires? Looking to possibly get another tire set, stock tires balloon like crazy

    The backflips don’t have as mich grip on the pavement due to them being more narrow. They have crazy grip in grass, gravel and mud. I’m waiting for snow and see how they do.
    As far as ballooning, they really don’t. I run my nero on 6s all the time and haven’t had any issues. Hope this helps.

    I'd be interested to hear your results from snow. Do you feel these balloon less than the stock tires?

    Also has it improved cornering at all with the tire being more narrow?

    They absolutely balloon less that the stock tires. Cornering wise, I’d say it’s not as good as the stock tires as there is less surface area. When I run mine on blacktop I usually switch to my stock ones. My one tire has a tear in it but I’ve been running it like that for months. It depends on your application. I think you would really like them. It’s like 68 bucks shipped, if your a tower hobbies super saver member. Can’t go wrong.
