Microsystems tyres, Serpent/Jaco tyres both make good tires for 1/8 scale price range around $36.00 and up, shores from 35 (softer) to 45 fronts(harder) what car do you have ? ON-ROAD correct?

great rim, good prices, good performance.

I like the 35 to 40 shore rubber for 1/8 on prepared tracks. 30 shore rears for dirty parking lots.

GQ tires are way more expensive than any tires that is in the market, and ORANGE is a joke and the shore rating is very inconsistent if checked with a DUROMETER
