This is a pair of Panther Burner 2.2" slick 1/10 truck tires. These tires fit on any standard 2.2" truck wheel, and work great for both electric and nitro trucks. The burner slick is designed to be used on the front or rear of 2wd and 4wd trucks on very hard packed, blue groove tracks. The drier the track, the harder the compound of tire you should use (ie: soft when moist, med-soft when dry), and "Clay" compound is ideal for colder weather and or hard packed tracks.
As the other review states, there is some excess rubber around the bead. These days that seems a tad unnecessary, but other than having to trim the rubber off these tires are very nice. I bought the clay compound and the are very soft and sticky and they hook up well on blue groove clay tracks. I run my truck with a mid motor set up and it can corner very hard with these tires. I can also punch it really hard out of the corners without the rear end wanting to come around. We aware, these are not for dusty tracks, these are for indoor clay or carpet. If you run in dusty or outdoor conditions will not not get the traction you need.

Panther Burner Slick 1/10 Truck Tires (2) (Soft)
I run strictly asphalt. These tires had a lot of extra rubber flaps around the bead (not trimmed from the factory very well). I had to re-glue them often (because of the flaps?). They had a good bite on the rear, but not the best for front cornering. For the price they were a good one time trial.
