Default 1/8 gtp2 foam tiers help

I need some info on tiers i have been having my gtp2 for over a year and been running it on a 4 cell lipo and the stock rubber tiers have been holding up great. I decided to get me a 6 cell lipo for it and dam this thing is so fast it blow the rubber tiers off the wheel on the first high speed pass i tried. It obvious i need foam tiers now but not sure which ones to get i just bash up and down the street and parking lots. I am looking for something with some grip and will last. I seen the ofna brand foam but not sure of the quality of them compared to other tiers form different manufactures. Could i get some feedback on some good foams.......................................


thanks

You can also try BELTED rubber tires. They will last much longer than foams and can take the 6s abuse.

The stock Ofna tires are unbelted and if you've been running them for a year on 6s, I am AMAZED!!! Mine lasted about a week on 4s

If I'm not mistaken there are several manufacturers that have them available. I'll need to double check, but I believe they're all belted.

Ipanema
Sweep
Alpha R/C
PMT

i posted that i have been running the stock tiers for a year on 4 cells maybe 3 or 4 times month kcunamay. the stock tiers lasted 5 minutes on 6 cells

i seen the belted ones but i also had another problem with the rubber tiers . they would not stayed glued to the rims that being the reason they tear and fly off the wheels. it will cost 50 buck for new one so i not looking to experiment. does anyone have a link to some good foam tiers. or even a good review on the ofna brand


thanks

Since there must be a language barrier,first it tires or tyres
Second I dont know what your expecting, but belted tires will handle 120mph or 192 kph, longevity wise I have no idea , but if tires can handle 120mph without coming apart or coming off the rim, what else do you need?

I bought EXP Sweep tires on 6ix packs and they've handled everything perfectly. Joking about the tiers thing.
