Default RB concept speedline racing tires 1/10th Foam

Hey, Has anyone had any experience with the RB concept speedline tires? I just saw them pop up on A-main hobbies today. They are decently priced compared to other tires. I was just wondering what the word on them is.

Thank you,

id like to know as well. Im also wondering who makes them as RB contracts others to make thier products. Maybe Novarossi Tires? Looks like Novarossi tires look the same and may be made by Kawahara/ZAC Project

yah I wonder who they have the contract with. The rim style looks generic. IE alot of tires use that style. I currently use the MSR and Twister Tires. For the price I may have to give a set or two a try.

Thank you,
I bought 4 complete sets of 1/8th, trued them up, but have not had a chance to try them yet.
I did notice that the foam does seem so much softer when truing the tires.
Not sure if I will buy any 10th scale yet, until I try the 1/8th scale.
I heard, but dont know for sure that the foam is maufactured in Japan.

We are testet the 1/10 touring foam tires. It is ATS(Twister) produktion. Has the JAPANES rubber and the same ATS rim style. But is much more lighter than ATS and very strong rims. Wery good grip.. Commes in a vacum nylon backs wich is good for fresh storage.

My LHS also carries the RB tires. The 1/10th sold out almost immediately. The people that did get to run them did like 'em. I plan a gettin a set to try for the 1/8th.

I bought some last week. They work pretty well. But just as someone else said, the do feel a little soft in comparison to other brands of that same sure.
The guys at my local track run them and they love them.
