Default Need new tires. Hyraxes vs KLR Golds.

Time to switch up my tires on my Bomber.

First I had the RB2s but they didnít seem to perform too crazy when they were wet or sandy.

I picked up a set of proline Super swamper xls which I have on there now, while they perform well I hate the look lol.

Iím on an island so 90% of my crawling is rocks on wet sandy beaches with the occasional trip to Pa or upstate.

Iíve narrowed it down to proline hyraxes or KLRs Gold.

Would love to get some insight and maybe some pics!

Thank you

PFA and to see where Iím crawling.

I have no experience with the KLRs, but I love my Hyraxs. I live in the PNW where it is always wet, so I have no experience with the Hyraxs when they are dry. I almost exclusively trail. one of the few surfaces that they have little grip on is wet wood, which is to be expected (you'd need studded tires for wet wood). There is a new development nearby the trails that usually has big piles of dirt and sand, so I can say that they work pretty well on sand. Being as it's winter, I have driven a lot in the snow, and they work better than my predator tracks.

I've run KLR Golds on BOMBERCON. I also run them on my TRX4 and my junker SCX10. I've never run the Hyrax, but they do look pretty good. I don't think you can go wrong with either choice.

Pics as requested...

The Hyrax look good, never tried them....but really impressed with the KLR golds I have on my rig. No sand experience though.

Go with Hyrax

They are amazing tires and they will be a lot cheaper than Voodoos. I'd also recommend Proline's two stage foams.

When Illya did a tyre test on his YouTube channel, I was amazed how poorly the KLRs performed, although not the most scientific test, it did surprise me.
Although they were 1.9 so maybe that makes a difference.
