Default Help With Tyre Choice

Hellooooo,

I need help with tyres. I do not know what size or type to get.
The vehicle that I will install them on will be an Associated TC4 Club Racer Kit.
http://www.modelsport.co.uk/associat...roducts/368681
I will be using the vehicle on tarmac and concrete mostly, but I might use it on a heavily varnished sports hall a few times. But, remember, mostly on tarmac and concrete.
Also, if you can suggest any tyres for me that would be great , but my budget for tyres is 10 - 15. This is for all 4 tyres. I know it is low, but I am spending a lot on the vehicle.

Thanks.

So you're dictating how the world should pronounce everything hey? Look outside your own country, there is a whole world out there!

actually, no i didn't make a mistake.

"Tire and tyre both mean a covering for a wheel, usually made of rubber. Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. Of course, all English speakers use tire in the sense to grow weary."

http://grammarist.com/spelling/tire-tyre/

I'm English BTW. You lot are probably American? Just a guess from the description of Tyre/Tire above.

You have to remember we say and spell (and do) things differently.

Although on this site, as I'm typing this, tyre is underlined in a red squiggly line so this site thinks I'm wrong too. Meh, maybe i am, maybe i'm not. Anyway it doesn't matter, more help on T*res <--

Pfft, this must be getting close to being the most stupid thing you have ever said Berty. Both spellings tire and tyre were used in the 15th and 16th centuries, tyre fell out of favor and but was revived in the 19th century and is the correct and proper spelling for a wheel covering in every English speaking nation other than the USA and Canada, because the USA likes to be different. Just like the USA don't have the metric system because the French own the physical weights and measure standard objects.
