Default Who has been running grp 63mm?

Just wondering if your rear foams keep coming off the rims like mine?I went through two sets of tires today the first set I could see maybe them coming loose because I kept running over the curb at the turn by the pit lane exit but the second set I didn't run over any curbs or rumble strips and they started coming unglued after 3 tanks.Also I have noticed that the rims are weak compared to my old kawahara tires.I am going to try out twister tires and see how they handle.

These are the extra wide grp 1/8 I am talking about.I am not cutting my tires down at all.I just thought I should be able to open the box slap them on the car and run them in.But maybe that is the problem?

Sorry your having this problem but if you are going to run high grip tracks with uncut tires you will most likely have traction rolls and you will damage what ever tire you choose. Traction rolling is very hard on tires and results in the kind of chucking you pictured the other day. Sometimes the best value in a tire longevity is to reduce the diameter. Anyone who has run 1/12th scale will tell you that full size tires get torn up but remove a couple of mm and they will last far longer, hense the new 38mm rims.

Well I ran in two sets of tires today msr 35 shores and twister 37's and none of them had come unglued and are still in perfect condition.I think one of the reasons the grp's are coming unglued is because the rims are soft and weak.I am done with grp tires now.
