Also, I'm going to get the HPI Pirelli tire 26mm and the Trinty wheel adaptors.

I'm using both the Pirelli's and the Rally knobbies from HPI... and the MRC tires (super soft and knobby)

After trying the HPI 4470, and Pirelli clone rally tires, and the Associated (pro-line made) rally tires, I would have to say that my favorite tires are.......Pro-line Bow-Tie tires on packed clay, and Losi step pin tires on dirt, both are made for
the RC18t & mini-t, and have been custom mounted to some HPI 26mm wheels and use HPI soft (red dot) 26mm molded foam ;)

well if you are going to custom-cut and mount tires...then the field is wide open with all the tires already out for the RC18T and the Mini-T

do any of these an all-around tread or an on-road tread.

Not really, because not all of the Mini-t size tires will fit over the bigger wheels, the Losi taper pin tires for example are too small in diameter to make this work properly.

The best part is that if a person already has a full set of 4 of these tires for a rc18t, they can re-use the tires by cutting them off of the smaller size rims and re-gluing them on to the 1/10th scale rims.

That is how I got started anyway, by just experimenting with old tires which were no longer being used anymore. ;)

The HPI Pirelli rally tires are long lasting and make an excellent all-around tread.

The #4467 Pirelli "T" Rally Tire 26mm D Compound must be the all-around tire cuz I was an HPI's website and I found it there. The desription for the S Compound Pirelli rally tires said it was for offroading. Thanks signats!
