HPI also has the Advan belted radial. Harder to find these days, RC Planet has the 33R for asphalt. I've had good luck with the unbelted V-Groove Super Radial but I wouldn't run them with anything more than a 13.5 cos the stock insert is really soft and I couldn't find any molded inserts that would work in them.

The trouble with the 26mm X-Patterns is finding a good insert. Most inserts now are 24mm. The stock X-Pattern belted insert is really soft but HPI 24mm inserts can work in them sorta ok.

Funny, the item you listed, lists the item condition as "USED"

You have 2 choices, save $4 and have potentially junk tires, thus wasting the $20 you spent on tires and whatever you spent on rims, or buy whats known to work.
