Default Panther 1/8 SC tire question

I was looking for some new tires for my hyper 10 sc and came across these panther sc 1/8th switch tires. When they say they are for 1/8th sc trucks does that mean that they will only fit like the sc8 rims or something? Will they fit the standard 2.2/3.0 1/10th sc rims? And also, with such small pins, will they wear out pretty quick?

Thanks

They are the standard 2.2/3.0 inch tires for all normal SC rims. They are for clay indoor tracks and wear would be comparable to the same tread pattern Panther offers for buggies.

Alright thanks for the reply. I run on a damp indoor clay track so these should work great. Anybody have experience with them? I have never ran these kind of tires so i am interested on how fast they wear down with such small pins.

My buggy switches last forever! I use 2 sets for a whole indoor season and they are still good. My wheels and foams wear out first. At our track switches are THE tire to run.

Did you need to cut them at all to have them fit in those hpi rims? And are they showing any wear yet?

I just got mine in (Red compound) and will be mounting them on JConcepts Rulux wheels for the Fools Classic race next weekend. Indoor clay, I can't wait to rail this thing around that track!

Panther FTW!

DO these hook up ok then the track gets a little dryer? I run on a clay track that is watered at the beginning of the day but dries out pretty quick. The class i run in runs last of the day so the track is dry when its our turn. I TQ'd both heats with my super soft shaved goosebumps but in the A main i got third because i was fighting for traction on a real dry track. Are these panthers the hot ticket?
