I'm using kawahara ZAC tires for 4 years:

A type : front 26mm and rear 32mm






B type is harder rims but more prone to breakage if you hit side walls.

This is B type photo :



Another tires I would like to try is Enneti and Ellegi tires.

a good tire has to have a strong rim also when you stick a durometer on the foam and it registers 40 nd the box says 35 there is a problem the true shore of the tire has to be close to the sticker on the box

As far as ROAR-sponsored racing is concerned, 32mm width tires are not legal. You could use them at the club level, but not at any competitions.

We don't use ROAR rules ( and I know ROAR rules sucks to make this hobby even more popular ).

I use 32mm rear for FEMCA and Futaba Cup, but I have to keep the rear track width 200mm.
