Baja 5b Duratrax tires

Just announced. New tires for the 5B from Duratrax. Multiple tread patterns and whatnot. Nice prices.


New Tires from Duratrax.


DDM tires.

Tower tires.



Buggy sizes only so far. I hope they make some for the 5T. I'd love a set of those Lockups on my Kraken.

I've got some pre-mounted Banditos on my Vorza and the grip is just silly. It'll pull wheelies on soaking wet pavement using only 4S power and rips through grass like no street tire should. They are holding up very well too but they do balloon a bit at high speed. I was gonna get a set for my Fazon too.

I don't know what other brands of street tires are like for the Baja. I have some HPI radials for mine and they suck. If the B5 Banditos have even half the traction of those on my Vorza... I gotta try a set.

Who knows if they will hold up to some of the insane power setups I've seen around here but for 30 bucks a pair, they look like nice replacements for the stock tires.

We saw these listed today and they look pretty good. I am hopeful that some options will work well for the dirt oval crew which seem to be the most dedicated 5B bunch out right now. DDM should have them in stock next week

Oh nice! More options are always welcome. I prefer to get my Baja stuff from DDM anyway. I like that they include foams, although they don't look anywhere near as beefy as HPI foams. I noticed that the tires have a webbed cross-brace pattern on the inside, hopefully to help prevent ballooning.

I'm kind of surprised they chose to produce Baja tires before 5IVE-T tires!

I think the various 4WD platforms are more popular.

Hopefully they're in the works!

Added DDM link to original post.

My 5B Lockups should be here tomorrow. Also bought a set of Lockups for a friend's Savage XS. That's a little tire shredder right there. We're gonna see what these are all about.

Lockups are here. They fit well and look good. Glad I had an extra set of 5B wheels. I used the stock HPI foams in the rear and the included Duratrax foams up front.

Has anyone have problems? There was a oval driver who put 20 laps on one and it started cracking.

I saw photos of it on Facebook the tire tore in the tread not the side wall like most do
Or the side wall to the tread area
And it was run on a dirt oval when it did this
The foams were though to be the problem and that may be the case
They said that they did not fit right in the tire
A little small but it also may have been from the tire growing that caused it
They may need a wrap of duct tape to help stop the tire from growing
Or the foam was the cheep non molded ones
But there was a problem with them but how do you find it after a day on Facebook
God I love my forums

I prefer forums too !

Can keep track of important information, and can usually find enough people to get some good information, from reliable sources.

Time will tell on the reliability of these tires, but they sure look like nice options to have available.
