Default Saw these at the 2010 NEO

Guys,

Not to be a Downer but I got to see these and see a few people run them. There tires Look and feel great. But even over the correct wheel there is 1/4" of play between the sidewalls and the foam.

The drivers that were using them did as I told them to and went to JC foam or AKA foam and the diffrence was night and day. This foam is of good compound but just not right for the tire!!!

I'm really getting frustrated at paying $70 a set for truggy tires and have them worn out after 2 days of racing on a blue grooved track.
They're predetermined to wear out. I could make you a set out of tool steel...would last the rest of your life. Traction would be an issue...

Finding a USA dealer is next to impossible..I contacted them to place an order directly 6 months ago for my hobby shop and they said they just signed a USA dealer and they wont sell me directly and that was the last I heard from them..Its a shame because they have some really cool stuff..I'd love to try that wing, and I have seen their tools and oils and tires in person and they are also good stuff.

It appears these are Duratrax tires as posted above by golferdude. If you compare the pics from the first page and the duratrax line up they look spot on. Dunno if they are louise or duratrax to start but regaurdless they look to match.

Louise tires are distributed exclusively in the US under the Duratrax brand.
