Default Help with tires size

Sorry for opening a thread to ask for an information that should be easily available but nobody on earth that have these tires in stock is able to tell me the size.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kyosho-Redbo...item5404d0148d

I've sent a message to the seller but no answer so far.

Tried to search on Google but all entries bring me to a site with minimalist information.

Kyosho's site, no chance

Is it 17mm hex? Would it fit an onroad 1/8 buggy? Diameter? width?

Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like they are for a 1/8 on-road car. They won't fit the 17mm hex of a buggy.

It's for 1/8 for sure like Ofna, Jaco and other tires but the main information for me is about the hex.

Ofna has a 1/8 foam tires for 17mm hex but they're so weak for the car that I'm racing that I'm looking for other options.

I can't understand why a store put a tire on sale without such essential data. It's pretty hard to find it for other tires too.

1/8 foam is 1/8 onroad (kyosho evolva, serpent 977, mugen mrx5 etc)

they would say 1/8 buggy or 1/8 gt for what you want.

some might say that 1/8 onroad gas is 'the' class, so anything more than 1/8 isn't needed.

I'm looking for tires for an open SC onroad class we have in our track.

We've already used OFNA 1/8 foam tires with great success but they don't last more than 5-6 races and are more expensive. Thus, I'm looking for other options.

Jaco produces a tire for Rustler VXL that would fit, however, I've bought some sets and the offset of the rim is not suitable to my car

I'm almost sure these tires are for Inferno GT
