I've been using Exceed tires lately and they seem to be working quite well at my track with reasonable wear.

I have had good runnings with GRP and KFactory and a good tire truer always helps!Dont forget a good tire should come on a good strong rim not something cheap and weak

I use Kfactory most of the time, so far so good and the price is right. I also Order Ofna Devil when I shop at Nitrohouse. Both has strong rim and plenty of tyre to run. the wearing is decent too

the only thing I don't like about KFactory is their packaging, extremely environmental unfriendly. I rather has a recyclable paper box and maybe a very thin plastic bag if they want to keep it fresh.

I have pretty much tried all the major brands of 1/10th scale foam tires out there and I can tell you this, they are pretty much all good. I did have some bad luck with BSR foams and Take-Off foams, though. Much of those issues were due to the glue not holding the foam on the rim and the foam donut literally flying off the rim while racing.

GQ hands down.

The wheels are the most durable out there ive never broken one (opposed to my dozen or so wrecked nitro shoes). The rubber may not be as good as Jaco, but im not experienced enough yet to know.

But the point is: if the wheel is broken, the rubber is USELESS.

So unless your a pro who rarely hits the boards, i think its better to sacrifice a tiny bit of tire performance for the durability of a tough wheel, because if it breaks you cant run it. as opposed to the rubber getting messed up like chunking, you can run it but it wont be as good. So durability is the big issue here.

PLUS GQ TIRES COME WITH SIDEWALL STICKERS THAT MAKE THEM LOOK ULTRA REALISTIC AND COOL!!! AND THE RIMS ARE ORANGE INSTEAD OF THAT BORING WHITE... (some of their limited production front tires had black rims tho)

The only reason I don't use GQ any more, is because they are that ugly orange color.

Other than that, they are pretty good.

What!! I thought that their orange colour was the bigest selling point for you !

I like to use the Ennetti's or Kawahara's as i have had good results with grip and wear with both and they are easy to get hold of on this side of the Bigpond for the right price!

GQ looks way cool
they dont warp or break easy
there cheaper
the rubber is imo better than jaco,they dont chunk as easy
kawahara are good but the rim sucks,they bend when you dont hit anything.
kyosho are good but the rim is not orange
