There are some ugly wheels out there that you can see at 50mph.

I agree, GQ tires are too expensive and the color orange is blahhhh.....but the rims are vvvvvvvvery strong. A strong rim is a must to survive mishaps, specially for beginners who frequently hit the boards.

The thing about Twister, or the sets I had, they were 28mm for the rear not 30mm.

I dont mind spending the time to glue and true my own tires. I run a specific rim (Fast Laps) and would prefer being able to get good quality donuts instead.
Which tires are Japanese Made?

I like using these tyres ForFaster (prices are in Australian dollars but you get the idea). They are well priced, have great grip, last well, can adjust pillow balls while the tyres are on, and are hard to chunk. These tyres even come in a '3000 series' here that have a balanced rim and are trued to 62mm for a little extra. They even do very good 1/8th tyres for a lot less than others.

As a racer this is about all that can be asked for. For the shops, being able to carry the same brand for 1/8th and 1/10th is a bonus since most shops carry at least a couple of brands to suit everyone.

I tested some tire's for the guy's at TQ fuel last weekend the results were great I couldn't tell the deference between GRP and there's my car felt the same maybe a little better, durability was not a factor they seem to hold up just fine. I also had a friend try them for a second opinion same results.
I hope these tire's will be available soon I think these guy's are on the right track.

I like the stickers for the sidewall also. I wish that someone sold them in a ten pack or something like that.

(on the mtx3)The fast tires had the 2 degree offset so when your camber changed it wouldn't drag on the rear upright or rub the steering links so iwould like to see that back.I would like to see a very solid spoked rim or even a dish rim with holes to make on the car adjustment.wedge tapers inside for strength and balanced.full size foam because everyones differnt tracks our track= fat tires ft meyers=skinny tires.I would like to see what your product turns out to be.maybe even test some Thanks
