They look nice, but that spacing is too tight to be usable for around here for anything other than a mild trail run.

Does that really say TRXUS on the side? So are these TRX-4 specific?

I wonder if they are 1.55. I'm guessing not as they appear to be on Proline's newer half aluminum beadlock wheels.

It appears to be their 1.9 aluminum composite beadlocks.

Sweet! Hard to tell the size but hopefully not just a 4.76” tire.

Here’s the 1:1

I had a set of 33's on my 1990 Toyota pickup. They are a pretty good tire in 1:1. Not sure how they will work as a tiny version. Yes, it does say TRXUS on the sidewall of the 1:1 also.

It makes sense that they're from Interco. They look like a modified Super Swamper like a lot of their tires. This one looks like a more road-worthy tire which isn't necessarily great for RC's.

TrXuS is a stupid name. Did a 12 year old AOL gIrL cOmE uP wITh tHaT oNe?

I know you’re terrain is different, but the small lugs on the KM3s haven’t held me back at all out here. If the size is right I’ll be snagging some.

Haha, hilarious. I hope their size is as scale as the tread appears to be. I have no use for another one of PL’s XL meat parties

It's the mud and dirt that hinders tires like these.

Also, Proline needs to step up with two stage foams to fit the tires.

Your age is showing. All of the AOL gIrLs are in their early 40s now.

OMG. I hated AOL with a passion. My roommate in college would monopolize my computer talking to some random "girls" on AOL's messenger. It was quite annoying.

I wonder how many of you guys remember ICQ?

These tires are designed with a tight tread that allow for reasonable road use. However when you air them down they become a completely different tire. I don't see that translating well into 1/10, without having the tire fold in the turns.
