Default Best 1.9 Snow Tires

Iíve been on the search for the best scale 1.9 tires for snow over the past year and have finally found a winner. Hereís the tires Iíve tested on my SCX10 over the past year.

Stock Maxxis Trepadors:
- worst grip
- narrow width and large diameter help to cut into the snow (not good for my heavy rig)
- 1/6 snow rating


Trepadors with snow chains:
- the chains obviously increase the grip on the snow and the large diameter of the tires work great for clearance
- 5/6 snow rating


Goodyear 3.89Ē Goodyear Duratracs:
- nice little scale tires with awesome grip
- small diameter are horrible for snow clearance
- great scale rock tires for summer weather
- 0/6 snow rating


4.19 Goodyear MT/Rs:
- my favorite sized tires for the look I was going for with my Jeep build
- awesome grip (especially on rocks during summer weather)
- small diameter is not great for snow clearance
- 3/6 snow rating


4.19Ē Goodyear MT/Rs with snow chains:
- the snow chains increase the grip on the snow better but still the smaller tire diameter isnít great for deep snow
- 4/6 snow rating


And finally, 4.45Ē Pit Bull Xtreme Rock Beasts:
- wide tires allow for better floatation on the snow
- 4.45Ē is the perfect diameter for clearance and the scale look I was looking for the Jeep
- the best grip on snow. Can dig through almost anything compared to the other tires Iíve tested.
- Iíve yet to install the chains on these tires but given their performance, I donít think Iíll be needing the chains on these tires.
- 6/6 snow rating



So if youíre looking for a scale 1.9 tire for snow, I highly recommend the Pit Bull Xtreme Rock Beast scale tires!

What tires are you using in snow?

From someone in the Great White North, thanks for the research. The winner is similar in tread and proportion to the tires I've found work best, too.

I'll bet that Pitbull Rock Beast XORs would be even better. They're super wide, and their open lug pattern should clean out pretty well. I just picked up some 2.2s for my yeti that I can try out.

Pitbull xors!!! Gmade bighorns too work fairly well but if you can afford the xors are the way to go the 2.2s are 2.5" wide and the 1.9s are 1.9" wide lmao have a set in either size the 2.2s are super super soft where as the 1.9 are way more firm

With my 2.2 XOR I surf on top of the snow no matter how powdery it is

They are wide for sure, but you must have very dense powder in Norway.

Hmmm..Had the Rock beasts out today, while they were OK, I was wishing I had my Swamper TSL's... the wider lug spacing helps fling out the snow

Haha... well, I'll admit that my scx10 is converted to some kind of 2.2 mud truck with brushless power, hits the snow running, and when I release the throttle, the truck sinks. Maybe powder isn't the right word :')

On a sidenote, seems traxxas like to show off their cars driving on water. Not exactly what I'm looking for in a truck

You wanna float on top of deep snow and cut down through lesser amounts of snow. I think RC4WD Mud Basher tires would be great for lesser amounts of snow, especially if you have snow slinging power.

I love those tires. Might need another set someday.

For my snow runs I have been pretty happy with Pro Line TSL XL in Predator compound. Crawler Innovations Lil Novas with the outer stage removed and non vented. Trying to replicate 5 PSI and maximize footprint and flotation, while that inner stage still gives it some structure. This is a snow only setup.

Do you have a thread on that rig? Bomber or Wraith? It looks awesome!
