Give a look for ATS tires. They are very high quality, has tough rims, very good traction and modarate wear. There are many shore options to choose too. They have slick tires too, but I don't try them yet. You can look our online shop for the prices.

Heres a link with the different tyre types used at the 2006 IFMAR worlds. You can download the file and see the ones mostly used.

Jaco tires are a great foam tire for nitro onroad racing. for both 1/8th and 1/10th.

Especially now that the tires come with the new serpent style rim, its a great combination of strength and grip.

If you measure the shore, a 37 shore tire might be somewhere in the range between 35 and 40.....
I've seen a 1/10 scale tire 40 shore measuring 46........
And they wear very fast, but also chunk......
But if you think it is a good tyre.......


@Secret_weapon,
As you can see, almost all tyrebrands are mentioned in this topic, simply because drivers will mention the tires they drive thereselves, mentioning a different tyre brand then the one you are using, is actually admitting that you are stupid, because you are not driving the tires of your choice.......
