We ordered the last 40s and they have sold out. When more become available, we will definitely have them.

I noticed that these tires pick up a lot more debris after a 4 minute run than the other guys tires, which tells me they are very sticky.

Ran more laps with my Spec GT car with Solaris 35s than my TC with Sorex 36s, both are tc6.2s with slightly different setups. Love the new Solaris 35s, so much so that the TC gets a new set next time out!!

Does anybody carry them? I am looking for the SC40EX or even the SP40EX as the 35's seem to wear out pretty quick in the heat at Roadrunners.
Gridworks ordered our last 40's. We'll be getting more in, hopefully sooner then later! I'm hoping within the next week and half.

Is Solaris still around. I have sent emails with no response. I noticed the last time EJ was on here was 6/15.

If anyone can give me info please do so. I would like to use their tires as our spec tire for our track.

Thanks,
Joe

Joe, we use the Solaris tires as a spec tire for our TC class in a series here locally, so I'm sure they are still around. Sold through Apex Hobbies in North America if I recall correctly. Still some of the best tires around. I don't personally have any contact info for them however...

Thanks for the information. Yes I have used them at our local track before and liked them. Now we're (A friend and I) are opening up a new track and I want the Solaris hard spec tire for our track spec tire.

I've sent 2 emails now over the last month or so and response. I will contact Apex hobbies and see if they can help.

Thanks,
Joe

I'm starting a series at our local track next year and we will be using Solaris tires at the series.

Good tire and great service.
