    I've been looking into new tires ever since i bought my 2012 r/c but can't hone in on one. I really like the look of the silent armors mainly cause i like the meat on them for what i do occasional off roading but mainly highway.
    I plan on lifting it one day what size of tire would still look good on stock suspension but look good once i lift it. I believe tirerack.com has a sweet deal on them right now $780 for a set of 4 plus a $80 mail in rebate!!!!

    Opinions people....help a flat tire out!

    They suck offroad. I would say that they are the same as the Rugged Fails that come on the offroad package. They are great on the street though.

    They're definitely better than the Rugged Fails, but they are not what I would consider a true all-terrain. Highway handling is great, tread life is great, snow and ice traction is moderate, soft sand and mud traction is terrible. They are a very quiet tire. If you don't plan on doing any serious off-roading, they should work well for you.
