Exclamation GQ RC Tires

I have a question.

I have been to GQ rc website
http://www.gqproduct.com/product/10serpent.htm

The fron tires are 30 mm wide and the rear are 51 mm.

Is this ok for 1/10 cars like v one rrr?

I remember front was 26 rear was 30.

Any info plz ?

Excuse the ignorance, as I starting to get getting back into the on-road scene... but what is the major differences between foams and rubber tires... I would think foam would be for a prepared track vs rubber being better for a parking lot racer (like myself)....

Thanks... Merry Xmas and Happy New Year...

Looks like a big oops on the website, those are 1/8th wheels.
Look under the 1/10th TC listing.

looks like the add might be refering to 235mm wheels as i believe that the 235mm class was refered to as 1/10th(could be wrong though)
1/8th rears are 60mm wide i believe so the 51mm sound like they will be for 235mm cars

i find that foams give much better tracktion in all (dry) conditions compared to rubbers and are more consistent
rubber tyres are used by the electric guys mostly

Itchyb is right you are looking at the 235 class wheels.
For traction rubber foam tyres are far better than traditional tyres only time id say it would the other way around is on dusty ,sandy surfaces where radial tyres work well.
