I just got some gold barcodes for 1/10 buggy. Are these tires non-directional or is there an inside and outside? My eyes might just be playing tricks on me this late but it looks like the sidewall graphics don't pop out as much on one side.

By the way, I really like the way the bead is thinner on these tires than some of the other offerings. These tires popped onto my Kyosho rims and the bead set with barely any effort.

im pretty sure the buggy tires are symmetrical. it is the truck tires that are NOT.

Default T4 rulux rims

I purchased the quick change kit from AE specifically to use the Jconcepts rims. Sadly, I've had the tire come off during the race. I don't believe this is a jconcepts problem, but was curious if anybody else was having this problem w/their T4, and what you did to resolve it. IN addition, does Jconcepts plan on making "standard" T4 rims with the slot drive?

I've not had a wheel come off of my GT2. Well there was this one time, but the hub broke in half. lol. When I put the wheels on I always give them a tap to make sure they are fully seated. New rims and new hubs are a snug fit so you need to insure it is fully seated.

One thing I noticed the first time I used the Rulux T4 rim is that they need a little more pressure to lock the wheel on compared to a proline wheel. If they are not fully seated I could see them coming off pretty easily. I do make sure that I hear them click when mounting the wheel and I have never lost one. I have only seen the QC wheel come off on track once and it was a really odd collision. Hope that helps.

Youre correct, we wanted a more positive engagement with our wheel.
