I don't know who stocks them as for online shops anyways. Although I'd call TOP USA. I'm sure they could hook you up

Default New Spoke Rims

We've had a couple races on the new spoke rims. Feedback has been positive.

I just wanted to throw something out there too...

Trains and Lanes Hobbies chose the Solaris Hard compound tire as their spec tire for this season and it was a very wise choice. The track surface was just resealed and at first traction was extremely low and hard to get ahold of handling. This past weekend, traction was good and tire wear was basically non existent. I ran tires for up to 10 runs with speeds only getting better through the day as the track surface cooled. We went from 120 deg surface temps down to 90 and it showed with speeds increasing 2-3 tenths a lap.

The tires have just been plain awesome. Great work EJ and Vincent getting these tires to where they are. Definitely a great product and the rims are awesome.

Default Reedy Race 2010

Thanks to everyone that participated in the Reedy Race this year. Solaris was proud to be a sponsor of the event.

Thanks again to Norcal Hobbies and Reedy for choosing the Solaris spec tire.

You guys will not be dissapointed with the amount of traction this tires will give you and this tires actullay performs at best on the 2nd and 3rd run with good even tire wear. I would say it is up par with sorex tires.

Any experience with these tires on parking lot asphalt? How's the durability?
