Need new tires for the scorpion

I am looking to replace the tires that came on the scorpion because they stink. What are some of the better tires out there. My truck isn't a comp rig yet, battery still mounted high on the chassis, but I would like some tires that will grip the rocks better.

Losi claws seem to be the best on the rocks but to me mashers are better all around.

how much are most narrowing the mashers to work well? The losi's are pretty narrow from the factory, right?

Most of us run 'em standard width. I've got a set of 1.5 wide Mashers that seem to work pretty well, but they still look like tractor tires.

Picked up some rock claws and a new front axle mount battery pack, and the rig crawls one hundred times better.

anything soft compound..also depends what u r running on...my test area is mostly slate n everything seems to not work well on that..but grabin an edge with soft tires is difficult..get on something with a decent grit n soft tires just keep goin...till i flip it..ive tried moab,moab m3,masher m3,losi claws,rock lizardR...cant wait till spring to try out moab/badland home mades
