I asked the same question a few pages/weeks ago.

Volante tires solve the low pro tire part of the look but bodies and wings (especially the rear) need to be addressed. I was hoping something would have shown up but now.

Team Powers tires are low profile as well

Any feedback on those tires? How do they compare to 572?

Nothing touches 571/572 on carpet. Thwt wear long and produce great grip.

I have tried Volante, team powers and sweep V6, all are good but not as God as the 571/572 combo.

Team Powers on order for asphalt and will test them middle of this month. Tried the Schumacher Pits 571/572 on asphalt, it was very aggressive for steering - pretty undrivable even after several changes.

Ok, so I have to ask for my own knowledge, who makes these?

They look like Volantes, could anyone confirm? Seems quite a few guys switched to them at my old LHS track (Team Powers distributor and outdoor asphalt)

On asphalt use 575 at the rear. The combo 571/575 works great on low to medium grip asphalt. The wear is resonable.

I'm not sure they are from The same factory. Volante h.q. is in Korea, Powers in Hong Kong. It's possible they just look close.

571 fronts are 90% of the time too aggressive for asphalt. Volante blue or green fronts pairs better with the 572 rears. Most guys here though still use the tried and true Tamiya 'kit' front tires with 572 rears. Has been the killer combo for a decade, even better than Volante or TP rears and fronts. The problem is 572's are harder to find so all the newer guys end up with Volante and TP.
