Besides reading this thread here is another one.

If you read these 2 you'll know a lot about rubber tires and probably find what you're looking for.

I think we'll get slow responses on our rubber tire questions this week as many of the ones who would answer are in Seattle at asphalt nats.

Also I do like the Ragu stuff, anyone else using that now? I actually tried treating a set of old tires for a few days in a baggie... they didn't dissolve and I was surprised how good the traction was, at least the first and maybe 2nd run on them. I also like the cleaner that goes with it, but it gives me headaches.... The main downside is LHS does not stock it.
Ragu works very well......

Racers Choice TQ Max works very well for cleaning rubber tires.

WD40 is decent for both as reported elsewhere. I've only tried it a few times, seemed to clean OK especially with stuff like SXT2.0 or Ragu Marinade which appear to be oil or heavily oil-based. Not sure how well it works with other more solvent-based compounds. From what I hear WD40 was commonly used years ago.

Ragu is sold by EA http:/www.teameamotorsports.com but I don't see anything on the shipping overseas. You can try Eric at his company thread

i think tire warmers only help to bake in the sauce as far as the tire being up temp for that first lap thats what warm up laps are for imo

Can somebody recommend a good long lasting rubber tire for parking lot bashing on a stock TT-01?

The stock Tamiya's look cool, but did not last very long at all . I am trying a set of HPI super compounds currently to see how they behave. I also see that Integy makes a really inexpensive tire; does anybody know anything about them?

Any info would help. I live in foamland and all the locals look at me like I'm stupid for wanting to run rubber, but I just want to have fun in the parking lot without costing $40 per day!!!

The longest lasting tire i can think of would be Takeoff 27's if you dont care about performance you will get doxens of runs out of em before you hit belts.

is there a good source for +4 offset rims. i like the look so it fills the wheel wells, and that's what the kit came w/. i'm not seeing any specs for most rims, so i assume they are all a standard 0 offset?

I am not 100% sure of any of the rims offset, but I would suggest that unless you enjoy gluing tires, that you get a premounted set of tires either Take Off or Sorex

Where do u get Sorex?

I found some premount Takeoff 27's today at my LHS, so I will try those ASAP to see how they do. Thanks for the tips. I also found some Jaco's. Are they any good?
