    Theres a little bit of an advanteg using buggy wheels and tires since the tires are symetrical but ive never noticed a difference on my 2wd slash. You might notice a diffrence on a 4wd slash but idk. Only time i would see it as an advantage is if you also have a 1/8 scale buggy you can also run the wheels and tires on cause you cant race buggy tires on a sc.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    I think they look pretty good on an SC truck. I will give you the pros and cons of 1/8th buggy tires:
    Pros:
    -More selection on tread design
    -looks good
    -Proven designs

    Cons:
    -May not be legal for racing
    -More rotating mass

    Actually i think there are more sc tire choices now than anything else. Good luck trying to find sand paddles for a 1/8 buggy.

    they have the sand paddels for the rail that could fit on any normal 1.8th rim. i dont think the tires will be cheap

    They wear the drive train real fast and some adapters really arent good. The AKA ones i will never use again, FLM i wil never use because i paied to much to snap stub axles to many times and the adapers weren't cheap. Also they take away the handling it makes things to easy. Stick with sc tires.
