Pro-line Racing Destroyer 2.2″ Monster Truck Tire Review

FEATURES
:
The new 2.2″ Destroyers are molded in the same M3 compound as it’s bigger brother. They are light weight, perfect for racing and bashing. They come with soft white foam inserts. For great scale looks, the new Destroyers 2.2 are proportioned perfectly with there replicated deep groove chevron design.

INSTALLATION
:
Because they are 2.2, they will fit most 1/10th scale stadium trucks, monster truck and crawlers. The wheels though are up to you. (for now) We might see them come mounted with a newly designed 2.2 Pro-line wheel later, but time will tell. They are primarily a glue on style bead, but I do see some 2.2 beadlock wheels would also work on this application, it would depend on the wheel clamp style.

PERFORMANCE
:

Take off-
The popular m3 compound these tires are made from make them have great traction and grip on practically any terrain. The brushless system used was a 21.5 and geared between mid torque and top end. I see any motor combination from here being either stock to higher rpm, these tires will hold on. (make sure you have good tire glue)
Turning-
Working hand in hand with take off, the traction on turning was great and would depend on the vehicle used. 2wd vs, 4wd would change the personal performance results, but overall they performed well.
Jumping-
The inner foams and soft rubber compound make landing easy and produce less excess spin off on landings.

FINAL ASSESSMENT
:
Truth be told, I hadn’t ran my stampede for a few years, once I bought a parts truck and got it back together, these tires put a whole new look and enjoyment out of the truck. The stock wheels and tires were long gone, and the 2.2 choices had since faded other than going for the 2.8 size. These tires are as much fun to drive as their bigger brother  the Clod Buster style Destroyer. Overall these tires are fun, and I see them being adaptable to all 2.2 sized vehicles, given the proper build considerations. If you have a scale rig, crawler or 2wd basher like this, these are great option and will give you your moneys worth for lots of fun and performance.
