Default Tourex Tires ??

In A Main Hobbies clearance section, I always see a large selection of these German made tires, available mounted and in all 3 compounds for 1/8 buggy.
Anyone have any experience with these as far as racing, or would they be better suited to use for practice and such.

Tourex

They seem like decent tires from what people are saying on this thread but I have never personally ran them.

They are good tyres but i would suggest un glueing then re glueing them yourself. I have had bad luck with them coming unglued during races!

Looks like all those tires on clearance come pre-mounted.Better off stickin' to what I've been using, mainly Pro-Lines, instead of havin' to unglue and re-glue every set.
