Here’s an example of Proline TSL-SX-XL,good tires that are pretty beat down, but still preform great despite their appearance. I wasn’t very impressed with them at first, but after a break in period they got better and better. The quality of these rc tires today are amazing. Companies are putting an amazing amount of research into them. Getting them to preform a lot like 1 to 1.

Since this thread was originally about tire foam...I have a brand new Traxxas Defender that now has aluminum bumpers, full light setup, winch and receiver and a bunch of new wiring. Its gained a bit of weight to say the least. So my OEM tires look like they’ve gone flat! I mean flat!! I dont think the stock Traxxas foam can support my little pig and the ground clearance is suffering. Any ideas thrown my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

That's where the CI dual stage foams come in to play. The inner closed cell absorbs the heavy load and prevents the tire from totally being crushed but the outer open cell still conforms for the rocks. Something like the Lil Nova 4.5" dual stages with medium outers front and rear would make a huge difference. The only problem now is the stock wheels are glue-on unless you switch to beadlocks.

Rubber and plastics manufactures use mold release to eject the part from the mold. Some residue may remain on the tire or part rendering the CA glue you apply useless. Same reason I wash my scale models before painting them

Would it help to do so using beadlocks as well?

It wouldnt hurt to wash all the pieces with warm water and Dawn dish soap. Which is the best detergent, us modellers found, to rid your parts of oils and release agents. Just let them dry overnight.

1 hole in the tire is sufficient.
