Default Cheap Tires

Doing a survey here to find out who has the cheapest Foam tires, (basically your carpet compounds not tires for outdoor) like your plaids, purples, pinks and magentas? Anybodys input would be great to share with the rest of the community.

They are not just for Nitro. They come in 26mm also.

Default TWISTER TIRES

Here is a place that has great, long lasting tires. They are usally only five days to receive and they have both 26 and 30 mm. I have used them for months now and they hold as well as Ellegi or JACO, (actually I have had bad results with JACO) TRC are top notch but way too expensive. The GQ I have not tried and they charge more for shipping so unless you only buy one or two pair than www.twistertires.com is the right choice IMHO...
Hope this helps

Nitro pavement tires are made of different rubber than the carpet foam is. The nitro foam is more coarse so that it can handle the debris from the outside conditions.

Those twister tires look like a good deal Ill have to try them out next nitro season. Thanks for the link.

Post Tires

The cheapest tires I have found to be from Jaco and TRC are at Shopatron on Trinity's website. And the jacos at Ashfordhobbies. He usally has the Jaco's in stock plus a couple other ones too.
The TRC's are 16.80 plus shipping on Trinity's site. The Jaco's are 15.99 from Ashford and I have another link for tires as well. The Rc Shack has them for 14.99 as well.

Here's some links for you!

I'm not too sure if they work on carpet(with my minimal testing on carpet, they seem to work fine), but you can get mono tuning tires pretty cheaply. Their site is www.monotuning.com. I also sell them at www.downeyhobby.com.
