Let me know if you prefer premounted or if you perfer to glue them yourself. Also the compund (M2, M3, soft, super soft med) you prefer. Thanks and I really appeciate your help.
This is Donnie Glover, right? I like to run the JCO crossbows and crowbars at the Rc Fun Hobbies track. I don't know what your track is like because i haven't been to it. maybe some cityblocks and i-beams as well as some small pin tires. I particularly like the double dee's

Hope this helps, Garret

There are a lot of good tires, for different tracks AKA and prolines are great. BUt for my tracks out here the softs or super softs work best. BUt they only last one race , or 2 club races. That gets expensive!! A lot of companies have great tires, just wish they could get them to be soft ,yet still last like Vp-Pro tires. I lamost wander if they want it that way so you have to buy so many!!lol.......but you guys who can buy the xtr or medium comounds dont have to worry about them wearing so fast, but they dont work out here...

But, a lot cant afford that.The fact that the quality is so good ,they last longer and are way cheaper is no brainer to me.
Just stating that i bought a set of M3 Holeshots for a Truggy and they were BALD after 15 minutes into a 30 minute main. $66.00 for rims and tires.
I've seem to find the JConcepts Sevens seem to last and have a decent price.

I wouldn't mind trying the Turbo Tax and Wide Turbo Tax combo. Probally not the best tire name.

If you look at all the tires out there are a lot that look very similar. I think every tire manuf has a tire that looks like holeshots, step pins etc...

I run softs and supersofts(or equivalent) AKA, Proline and Losi treads. Favourites would be AKA Cityblock soft, Proline Caliber M3, Losi Eclipse red or green.

I have to say: VP PRO TIRES , awesome rubber! And they have the new foam insert , lighter and a little bit softer than than AKA's , great combo for my car , i think AKA's rubber is good too , but insert is too hard, As for VP , check em out, nice match with the tire , more grip . 7 types of tread pattern, covering all types of track conditions Axman and cutoff is my choice. i am just curious if they will produce tire for my Slash and elec. buggy
