I ve been using GQ tyres for 3 years now and very happy with the performance. Comparing with other tyres it wears longer than the others with the same shore. I m using GQ in my TC and 1/8th on road. One thing that I wish GQ had was a choice of rim colours, its kind of bored having orange colour all the time.

I've been using them for the past year. The shores are consistent and quality is as really good. Minimum chunking and very good tire wear. Best of all, these are the strongest tires I've tried.

I always get mine from Racedayhobbies.com. I get the shipment in 2-3 days. They are hard to find locally.
