Default 1/8th tires

Anyone got opinions? I usually use GRP, good grip and consistent but quite expensive. What do you fellas use?

Are you talking foams for 1/8th scales like MRX-4, Evolva, etc or are you talking rubber tires for Inferno GTs, etc.

I would run Kyosho red box...of course.

If I couldn't get Kyosho tires, I would go with GRP or Kawahara.
They are both more expensive brands and are very good tires. I might try some of the lower priced options, but if I noticed any differences I would go with a proven entity.

I am not going to compromise something as important as a tire when running a 70mph $1700 car.

Sorry about the multiple posts, I've been getting really bad lag on this board recently and had no idea if it posted or not.

Danielle Ielasi just recently switched over ATS (Twister, but in Italy) so you should start seeing some race results if you doubt the quality of the tire.
