Default Louise Tires COMING SOON!?!?

http://www.louiserc.com/

Anyone know when the tires are going to be available for purchase?

I have seen two people now run them in Arizona and they have a great feel to them in your hands while also performing well on the track.

In particular I'm interesting in these three tires...

Any info is appreciated!

I second that; I'd be curious to know how good these tires are, but so far the only place I've seen them are in online news snippets. While I can't speak for the quality of the compounds, my hat's off to them for using color-coded sidewall markings **hint to you other manufacturers out there**

Default tires

I have been running Louise tires for over 6mo in Arizona and they are good. I have run the B-Groove and Maglev in soft and the truggy tires are good also. They are 4.0 like proline. The compound is in between M2 and M3, I would like to see a softer tire. Jenny at Louise told me she is working with someone in the USA to bring the tires in, they might be under a different name. Scoopdaloop I have a set of tires you can try now that you are racing buggy again

Is that foam for the tire next to it in the last pic? If so it looks small for the tire.

Ya it is the foam it fits good, the tire is made for V2 style rims and when you stretch the tire over V2 rims it fits. It does look small in the picture.

I hope they are cheaper than everything else. 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.

The second tread design you posted are some of the best tires I've ran. It really hard to pick between those and the M3 Calibers from Proline

So for the guys that already have some of the tires did you have to order them right from Louise? or is there another place?

Also what was the price of the tires with foams and no rims?

Alan, where did you get the tires? Tread looks like it would really hook-up at rev.

As Marcus said above, they are working on getting a US supplier. Hopefully soon. I'm liking the second tread a lot also!
