i know everyone love's the claws. but they suck when they gum up. i noticed that today when i was crawling around queen e park today. what are your guys opinon on the tire, i guess from the looks of it ?

Great tire on the mossy rock, all depends on the sidewall height and they do get filled with mud if you're crawlin thru it in between rock sections. You may need some wheel speed to clean em out.

The Badlands' tread work great, can't wait to see the taller version and a 2.2 Proline version.

today i cramed the full stock axial foam on narrow beadlocks and they seem good......and any tire will fill up without some wheel speed

ill be using these on my truggy, cuz they look badass, and if u cant sidehill with claws, ur setup is wrong, too much weight , too little foam?? imo the best "dirty' tire that can still compete is the masher, m3.

my claws have full width foams and the diameter has been reduced by half but no funny patterns just a ring .it lets your tires conform to the rocks ,but keeps the side wall stiff for side hilling .also stops the rim from slicing the side wall which happened to a buddy.star or tractor patterned foams are over rated i have done just about every combo imaginable .i just gave away the last 3 sets of foams all with different patterns ..i know this is a tire thread but foams are very important in making your tires transfer the weight of your rig to the ground for propper traction..any tire will benifit from a good foam set up..just my .02

I will be getting a set or 2 of these regardless but i would like to see a review of these tires on semi-local terrain. We have lots of moss covered rocks over on the island, and i have a sneaking suspicion that the badlands will be perfect for this terrain:nod:

I'm selling the farm for these and I bet they will be on most of my rigs as soon as we can get them.

I just put on my 2.2 badlands thursday night and did a little testing, all I have to compare them too is the stock lizards on my axial but it is like night and day so far. I never knew what a difference a decent tire would make, now proline is comming out with the m3 compound in the badlands and hammers.

there is no end in site to the tire war going on..rc4wd has released the creepy crawler 30.00 a pair,rock stompers ,rock crushers .just because a tire has hype doesnt mean its good just that it is new ..badlands well they are a copy of one of the best truggy tires ..that does not mean its a rock tire ..m3 moabs look very good ,but i dont like the bead on the tires much..proline says the hammers are an allterrain tire .i still havnt seen a tire out perform the claws on the rocks ..my thoughts are leaning toward the imex rubicon soft compond ..its an overlooked tire that has potential ..just my .02

I have run my badlands a few times now and so far i find that they just grab too much and get hooked into the jagged rocks we run over here way too easily. I like the losi claws better if the rocks im running are clean. If its mossy/dirty, the badlands are better.

Yeah, I think the badlands will be perfect for around here. Lot more river rock type terrain which the claws just don't hook up well on. Will probably have to buy another set of wheels and have one for badlands, one for claws.

Dittohead, just use your badlands on the rocks when the tide goes out. Should hook up well on wet, slimy seaweed covered rocks ;)
