Smile Twister foam tires

Has anyone had any experience with the twister foam tires from

http://twister-tires.com

Im looking to fit them on my 1:10 scale serpent 720 car ( even though im thinking of switching to mugen ).

I see that they have very good pricing (Look at those quantity princing ) but im also wondering about the quality.

In the past i have driven several different brands like jaco , grp , enetti etc.

I see that they already won some championships with these twister tires but im wondering if anyone here has experiences with these tires ..

Well prices from the USA are not interesting for me since i would need to pay sales tax etc at customs when i order these tires from the USA to Europe.

If your experiences are good with these tires then i will order them at http://twister-tires.com since their company is in europe too.

Twister tires USA is distributor for the USA as their name says already.

Besides i contacted them at http://twister-tires.com today and they are indead a long term distributor (several years) for Twister tires for many country's in and outside europe.

Im thinking of switching to a 1:8 scale mugen car. But im not sure if my budget will be enough..

ATS is the italian brand of Twister which is marketed in various parts of Europe and the north/central americas. It's just a different box.
