They were very durable tires, and I might get more from BSR if I can't find a cheaper alternative in a regular tire and insert combo. I just wanna see if the R40 can perform with rubber tires cause I am getting tired of chunking foams(I drift through corners sometime and it can be faster).
Artifical-I, where did you order the Ellegi rubber from, I might want to check them out.
I have a feeling that rubber tires will go the way of the dinosaurs in a year or two.
We race on Rubber Tires only down here....way down south (Peru), on a semi permanent unprepared track.
We've tried everything under the sun, and we use to race Jaco precapped tires (exelent tires), and when they discontinued them, we switched to BSR precapped tires...wow...great tires...but very expensive and illegal.
So we then started the search for a good grip, long lasting, premounted legal Rubber tire...and we found it. PMT Rubber Tires from Italy....and we now race nothing but them.
They come premounted in BBS style rims 26mm belted slick or threaded formats, and in 40, 45, 50, and 55 shore rating.
They last for one hour hard racing before the belt starts to show.
We are Distributors for South America for PMT, and a set of four sells for
U$D 36.00 plus shipping charges. We have 50 shore fronts and 45 shore rears slicks on stock, which is what works down here.
If you are interested send me a Private mail and we can work something out.
