These are good, after all, they won the worlds.

When I run foams I use 40's in the rear and 45's in the front. But locally they are a bit more expensive than other types.

That is all the guys around here use. 45s front 40s rear and if you need more traction then 40s front and 35s rear. They also have good luck with Ellegi tires which are also cheaper.

The best tires I ever used, bar none, are the Mugen Fast tires, which Im told are the same as ellegis. I tried the TRCs and the Nitro Shoes, but I get way better wear from the Mugens. Also the grip is a lot more consistent from the first run to the last. And Baker could have been using any tire brand and would still have won the race.

Thanks,

That's a neat trick, considering Pavidis won

Speedmind has a good line out also. I've tested out " The Beast " tire and they wear very good with all around good performance. Also, the rim that they use is from germany and its hella strong. I smacked a board on purpose to see how strong the rim was and it didn't bend or crack. Try a set if your LHS has them. I use 45/40 on my nitro sedan.
