Default rx8 2011 tires

I have an older xray rx8, I bought used, and was wondering where to buy new tires for it. Im looking for the softest tires as I only use this car for drag racing. There hasn't been a 1/8 scale track around here for years.
Also no hobby store in toronto carry tires for this thing. I found online kyosho wheels but not sure if they will fit my xray.

I think you have to learn a lot about these fast cars and be not so Motonica minded....

These 1/8 monsters as yours do not use a hex shaft. To exclude some older 80's/90's models like BMT, Picco and Serpent (Excel and older) all models today are using the so called OSR1 and OSR2 (also known als Kyosho/Mugen) rim.
All models sold after 2008 do use OSR2, but some tire brands do still sell OSR1 rims which are only for Serpent 960 and older models and the EDAM car.

There are so many brands today, just pick and choose. The Ennetti and Matrix are well used tires and sold under many other brandnames.

Just to make sure lower the shore number the softer the tire?
Like 32 shore is softer then 40 shore.

For what you are doing either hot race or ennetti on the light wheels would be your best bet. Should be able to find 30 shore and maybe softer all the way around
