Single compound 'C2' - Black (45), Grey (40).

Dual compound - Red/Magenta (55/40), Black/Grey (45/40).

1-50 pairs @ US$13.99 / pair

51 - 100 pairs @ US$9.99 / pair

Opps...I'll appologize for Tiger's error

YOu are correct...10th scale tires run about $14 a pair...But remember that is a "retail" price...a LHS may be less

These are some of the best wearing tires I've run Hold up great on a nitro car, so I can only imagine how well they will wear and work on carpet

Did you have to cut the rims to get them to fit your Tamiya??? THat's my biggest complaint about the Tamiya car since I can't make a tire narrower to save my life :x I had to switch to an XRAY

They fit the standard 415 suspension just Fine. Nexus uses HPI Pro4 knuckles w\ the LW suspension and has no interference issues.

Sorry about that grabbed the wrong part of the page....

Had another strong run with the GQ Nitro tires today, qualified 5th in Mod Nitro, finished 3rd in the extended A-Main.....

The Black/Greys work well for stock, I think the tire wear is excellent.

how is that possible...28mm rims didn't fit my EvoIII - which uses the identical suspension as the "standard" 415

I had to space the wheels out in order to barely get the wheels to clear the ball cup on the top of the C-hub

Sorry, forgot to mention that I do run the 5mm wheel Hex's on my cars. I never tried to fit them with the stock 4mm wheel Hex's.

that's still interesting...I was running the 6mm hexes (the "thick" tamiya ones - silver) and still had spacing issues....

that's on only downside to the standard suspension - it don't like foams too much...I've been running this suspension since my TA04R (which had foam fitting problems) thru the EvoIII

Strange. Both my 415's are the standard suspension and both use 5mm Hex's. One car is setup for foam and the other is TCS legal. Have not had any interference problems. I'll try to throw a set on my EVO III tonight to see if they fit.

For those running 12th scale can you post which GQs have been working for you.

I don't run 12th myself but I know some people in the area are interested in finding that info out.

Thanks.
