Default AKA Tires......Release Date?

Does anyone have any information on the release date of AKA tires?

I see they keep updating their website with win and TQ information, but no vendor or purchase information.

Anyone have any info on a release date?

I hope so. I think the cityblocks might be a good tire choice 'round these parts. LOL.

I hear that it should be pretty soon.
I have been lucky enough to try a set of the City Blocks, and they are HOOKED UP! I think they will be hooked on just about any surface. This could be the only tire to stock up on, and have in your bag.

I know I will be stocking up on them, when they come out!

RC Planet doesn't have them in stock. I tried to place an order, and they said they are about a month away. I certainly prefer the way A-Main lists their product. If it's not in stock, it's listed as backorder.

It's too bad, I was really looking forward to running these in a couple of weeks.

They are making the decisions now on when to ship. We are packaging them in house as we speak. Taking everyone from their normal jobs. Were staying at work until 8pm night after night...We are doing everything possible to get them out as soon as possible. All I can promise is that it will be the best presented and performing tire product you've ever seen or ran.
