There is a new US distributor that is just gearing up right now. You should see some online activity in a couple weeks or so.

Tires look good but I hear the rims are cheap and break easy. Honestly though I have never seen or run them this is just what I heard from people who have.

I just wish tires were about half the price they are. That would eliminate a lot of the headaches I think. Then people would be more willing to try out tires. Maybe it's dumb to think that. LOL.

Ofcourse it is different for every track and weather condition.But if you said you can have one tire i would pick bowties, they just seem to work everywhere, for some reason in the 2 years i have been running 8ights the car has never liked crimefighters

Because my buggy has never liked the crimfighters on it, plain and simple.Never been happy with the car with crimefighters on it.

And the bowfighter setup is very different to just crimfighters, i quite like bowfighters.

I run Werks Lugz for racing and badlands for bashing. Lugz are fairly soft and have amazing bite on a wet tacky track. Badlands last forever but are heavy.

As someone mentioned later in this thread... for a long lasting tire, Werks are tough to beat. A little less traction than some of the tires mentioned... a LITTLE less... but I have a set that I have 3 races on, and they are barely "feathered." Not 3 heats... 3 full races, with 3 heats and a main in each... and they are the soft compound. Note that we run on a very dry, abrasive surface that chews tires up pretty quick.

Also check out the Team Cobra tires.
Thats what they were.
Thanks for the tip I'll give the Werks a try.

Good point. Its hard to get away from the popular proline just for the cost. I was hoping to see some low cost posts with a tried and true testimonial.
Like the sportwerks tires are cheap but they last one darn night.
I heard good things about those hat tricks but I don't have a link I guess I'll do a search?

Default proline

I like proline holeshots and proline bowties.. they both seem to be working great, though every driver has thier own perfernces, myself i like alot of traction. though tires itself isnt the only issue, its also how you have the suspnesion setup too.

Does anyone have any experience with the GRP line of tires? The prices aren't bad and the tread patterns seem to mimic those of the more popular brands/models.
