Probably correct, but it looks like a black version of the Kyosho wheel. If it were white it would be indistinguishable from the Kyosho wheel. My guess is that Capricorn was trying to avoid looking just like the Kyosho.

That tyre in the pic has that been trued already? If not what is the starting diameter of them?

I like white rims better aswell but for something different i think it's good. And my star sign is capricorn so maybe they could be my good luck omen

How much will they sell for?

the size un trued is the same as all other tyres i think its 64 1/2 but have not put a caliper on it yet we will let you know this after noon we will be getting ready for state race .The rims seem to be lighter than the plastic that is used in most rims.These rims are made of carbon same material as carbon fiber without the fiber

Tommy,

Thanks for the heads up on these new tires from Capricorn. They look pretty sweet. I like the black rim. Can you put a scale to them? I'd be interested to see how they compare to a stock Kyosho. I've been hesitant to order the light weight Kyosho style rim from Twister because I know they are not as durable as the regular type. If these are lighter but just as strong I certainly would like to put in an order. To bad I just placed a big order with Twister for the start of the 09 season. Keep us posted .

Regards,
Speyederjedi
