Advantage tires are great, we have been running the Hat Tricks in super soft quite a bit and they have worked well at several tracks. The Moon Shots and Hole Shots also work well. We haven't ran the Block Passes yet but will be soon, I know a lot of people really like the Block Pass tires.

And you run the super soft???
How is the Wear on these tires?
I was thinking of getting the hard compound since they directly to this from soft and i prefer medium compounds.

DLD tires is my tire of choice...i have the moonshots, hat tricks, and the ZZ's in soft and super soft...the moonshot is a better version of the proline bow tie, and the hat trick is a more stable version of the crimefighter, jolly, K2...i really highly recomend these tires, you will be very happy...

Sooo.... Everyone who's tried the tires seem to like them a lot based on the responses here...

If I where so inclined to try Advantage wheels and tires, where might I obtain their products online for the best prices?

Actually, there're only two guys who've tried them and liked them. FWIW, a local racer, Slim, here in Chicago was sponsored by Advantage and he dropped them because they didn't perform as well as other tires at our tracks. He said the rims stripped out easily also. I don't know personally so take that as you will. I do, however trust Gasser/Troy Weatherholt's opinion.

I've had good luck with their wheels and some guys at the local track are having good luck with their tires. Does anyone know if they will be coming out with a tire close to a Pro-Line Holeshot?

I will definately have a few sets in the tire bag next season. If you want to forward me your DLD team leader's email i will be more than happy to dropp him a line and tell them how helpful your info was in promoting their product. Thanks again--also i was talking to one of the guys at the track and he believes you are the one who bought his used Mugen MBX5R a month or so ago-what a small world it is. Good luck racing and thanks again for the help!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the tires were great--The track was red clay with some sand mixed in. Really hard pack and the sand made it slick, and the DLD Advantage Hat trick were hooked up, much better than Bowtie M2, M3,K2's, Cubics among others. Definately worth the money--Amain stocks them and gets them out in a hurry. Thanks again to Jason Halvorson for all the info--an asset to the rc community.
