Default Are these tires any good? "Ebay Suprasales"

I was wondering if any of these tires are any good? And witch compound is the softest? (WD, BKD,WS)
Has any one tried them?
And they are only $23 shipped for 4 mounted tires! :shock:

These look like CF knockoffs. [-X

Bought something simillar, only didn't have a choice about the softness.
But they were really hard and felt like plastic toy car tires But for practise they were ok, until massive rim breaking occured. At first i thought i just hit something hard, but later, during the day, i broke like 4 rims...
If it weren't for the rims - i would use them.

The compound of the tire is really wierd. After about 4 to 5 runs the lugs started falling off. I bought a set of the crimefighter look alikes on the white spoke wheels.

I won't buy another set. I'll pay the extra $$ and get proline, panther, etc.

WOW those seem to be the perfect tires for that field, they send up just the right amount of roost without being too hooked up

for the price, they ain't bad, but the rims are weak..expect to crack em pretty quick like if you do any big jumping....also, the compounds are very hard, but not a bad way to go to bash around with

If supra rims cracks then it's not nylon or maybe just an ordinary flexible plastic material?

What kind do you have?????? Racing spikes (CF look alike) or the Mohawks?
And what compound also? WS, WD, Pro???? And how are the rims holding up?
I figure the dish rims should hold up a bit better than the spokes.
I sent SupraSales a message but all he told me was that the WS, WD tires were 52 degrees and the Pro's were 42 degrees.......What ever that means!
But then again the Pros are $27 and the other tires are only $14

He means 52 degrees celsius and 42 degrees celsius air temperature. So, the Pro's are softer because they are used in colder weather.

bigsal,

wd=white dish, ws=white spoke. There are no compounds. The pro is a molded foam compared to the old style foam. If you opened up a few of his auctions and read the description it is easy to figure out, especially if you opened an auction for black wheels

I'm a big fan of spoke wheels. Are they strong enough to race with? There is a guy that I race with that swears buy the tires (pro compound), but he buys dished. I will buy some spoke wheel/tire if they are strong.

The second ones look a lot like some prototypes called "Momentums" that Skinny from XRC had at the RC X-games.
