For your buggy or your truggy? I think RC Compound has the best selection...

GRP is being distributed by someone new for 2008, from what I understand Hobbico lost the exclusive rights to GRP tires this year. That might be part of the reason you're having a hard time tracking them down. Old distributors are clearing out inventory, new distributors are in the process of receiving their orders still.

Hey that pictures is of the old style of the Cubic the new ones have a solid rib that runs around the inside and outside edge doing away with the pins on the very edge Don't qoute me on this one but the tire wear on the old style was bad but the new style is much better .. would pay to check what style they are !! checked on the GRP site and there Pics show the old style they are a good price by the look but not if they are the old style

my truggy and Buggy tires look identical i was told they changed the construction ie the side ribs because the tire wear was crap on the originals .

my 2 cents
