Default Multi colored on road foam!

Hi guys, this is something thats in the pipe line, still undergoing testing, but so far we have managed to get some good compounds. Nylon rims, 8th still under development. Sure thats a first for most of us, they not just colorful, they WORK WELL

All the best!

If they are around the price off the normal tires it would be nice to have for every different shore a color.

I like the idea but the blue and yellow gotta go!LOL I think it should be a mix of colors for every shore. Don't limit a certain shore to one color, what if the compound you like to use turns out to be a real cheesy color? Also, what effect is the carpet groove gonna have on the color, will it turn them all black?

Would be sweet if it were one color per shore. That way, no more guessing what your used tires are! I have a box of used tires that i'll need a durometer to figure out.

Dont think that the carpet will effect the colour, the colour weares through evenly, so in other words its not a surface colouring on the tire but consistent all the way through. So as long as the tire is losing foam it will stay blue or whatever colour it is.

Will there be any green or yellow foam tyres in the pipe line?
A set of those with black rims would match my body colours well!
Also a combo of green rim with yellow foam or yellow rim with green foam would look great!

Might also be nice to have black tires with a colored stripe down the middle to help identify shore. (still thinking about how expensive a durometer is. )

That would be cool to have color stripes on just normal black-foam tires. Each color representing a different shore.

There is some serious interest in identifying compounds by using colour, I think that is the way forward, makes things really simple on race day. I am wanting to see what other colours he can do, green, yellow, purple, aqua....so lets see. Price will be highly competitive, if not the most affordable
8th donuts I am hoping to be really well priced so you dont have throw up when you put a brand new set of tyres on and chunk them the first time you go round, that REALLY sucks!

Really appreciate the feedback from racers, keeps us thinking

All the best

IMHO, I don't care too much for the colored foams. But that is just me. I do like the colored rims so you can match your color scheme on your lid. Is it possible to mold the shore on the wheel itself?
