Default AKA Gridiron Truggy Tires

AKA Gridiron Truggy Tires- what other brands make a similar tire for truggy? I think this design will work really well at our local track, but I just wanted to see what my options are.

Do you know if Proline is coming out with a truggy Sniper? The Holeshot works great, but I need something that lasts a little longer.

Possibly not the correct heading for this thread.

I jumped on thinking someone wanted info on AKA Gridirons for Truggy, not info on other brands similar.

dsl,

your best bet is the AKA Gridiron. The wear you get with these can not be matched and there foams are way better then the competition, they can be reused over and over and there foams are actually consistent unlike proline

Honestly, try these out, especially for the $$$. The AKA is a very good tire, but the VP's are damn near as good with less money. And honestly, their soft and extra soft compounds are VERY good.

Jconcepts sevens are also a good choice when a small pin tire is working.

Just go the Gridiron. I had to use proline for a proline race meet and used them in practice for another meet, then put the aka back on for the heats and on a 37 sec lap track the aka's were 3 seconds quicker.

AKA is the real deal, there is no substitute. Don't beat your head against the wall, just get the real thing and be done with it. No charge for the best advice you will get all day.

Hotbodies Pink Megabites are worth a try for sure.

AKA Gridirons it is. When do you use super soft vs soft? Is AKA super soft like proline m3?

super soft is more like m4, soft is like m3 I think... for the truggy you will rarely if ever use medium, only if the track was dry and really grooved up

Hot Bodies Megabytes and VP Pro Turbo Trax work very well. My standard go to tires are AKA Cityblocks, whenever I have trouble I always go back to my Cityblocks. Sweep Racing will be releasing their truggy Exogons in Jan. and I will be trying those out for sure.

Holeshot pins are considerably shorter than Gridiron pins.. Snipers are a lot more like it, HB Megabites are similar. Methinks JConcepts have a similar tread, too... I guess the DD V2's. Also, the JC Sevens are awesome. Really good wear characteristics.
