Where can I get it? I m not from the states BTW. I would like to try those. For info I can get brands like Xceed, IDM, GQ , ATS, Matrix, GRP, Cheetah Club easily, either locally or ordering from webshop in my region.

You can win with them all. Its up to you to get your car to work well. See if the person locally can give you some info on what compound tires work well at the track you are going to.

Most of those you mentioned are all made by the same company, ATS.

GRP and GQ are two non-ATS brands.

Depends on which Xceeds. The US made Xceeds are Jaco. The Italian Xceeds are Enneti. The Japanese Xceeds are someone else.

IDM, Twister, RB, plus a bunch of others are all ATS made.

BSR and US Xceeds are Jaco.

GRP is GRP.

Italian made XCEEDs are ENNETI, (not ATS)
Japanese XCEEDs are made by the same company that makes both the Red Box and the former Kawahara.
ATS makes IDM, RB Speedline, Twister, Cosmic, and many more.
Matrix is just Matrix.

Interesting, I thought Matrix was ATS. Good to know.
