Default IDM Tires

Well the IDM tires are finally here. They are as we are sure you know mounted with ATS rubber and also they come sealed in plastic shrink. The lines will be offered in white wheels as well as 2 types. The normal type wheel which is slightly lighter then the standard wheel and also there is a transparent wheel that comes machined out for the front wheel discs that IDM offers. There will be no special lightweight tires under the IDM line. If there are any questions please email at [email protected]. We have a limited amount left right now in 1/8.

We have had some here for a bit and I have to say that they are very good. We have had no issues with glue or anything like that and the tires warm up very well.

We only have a few of the gold wheels left.The white are what are taking the place seemed like alot of the folks did not like the gold wheels as much as the white. I am not sure that the wheels are still available I can check though. The sets are selling for $25 a set plus shipping. This is 1/8 I have not received any 1/10 again yet. The tires were alot more before but we were able to get better pricing.

As I'm sure you know, tires are a big expense when it comes to 1/8 onroad racing. When you say $25/set, I assume you mean $25/pair? Currently I'm paying $15/pair for a brand that I'm very happy with, why would I be interested in paying $10 more per pair? That's about $40 more per race day. I'm always interested in trying new products, especially tires, but that adds up. Will you be making any "quantity" offers, say...10 pair for $150?
I make these comments in the most sincere and respectful manner.

No they are 25 a set. Not a pair. There is 4 per set. Front and rear.

25 a set is a damn good price. I used to get tires a buck or two cheaper than that years ago but it's been years.
