Default New Foam Tires On The Market!

There's a new, inexpensive brand of tire now being sold in the U.S. called "Twister Tyres"

They make foams for sedans, 1/10th scale, and 1/8th scale cars!

Visit Twister Tyres Website!

I am not an employee of this company, I am just helping out a friend by announcing their new website. If you have any questions regarding the product, please direct them to the email address on the site.

cool

if they can lower the price down to 8-9bux to match other online stores then it will be even better

the extra few dollars add up to a lot when you buy 10 set of tires at once

I don't control the prices my friend..

the big market is the 1/10 on-road and 1/8th scale tires!!

That's cheaper than cheap for the prices they've got!

i still get my foams cheaper than that. and you may want to anounce the site, when it is finished, ie all the links go somewhere. maybe free shipping would make upp the difference. just a suggestion.

there are "photo"pages without photos, and 1/10th scale page has neither pictures nor prices, but perhaps i'm just too picky

yeah, I know that, but the links work. you click on them and they take you somewhere, not like it says "page cannot be displayed or something"

maybe you're being picky

Patient young jedi, the 1/10th tires will be up as soon as they are available and the pictures will be there after this weekend (there's a race i'm attending and will be taking pictures for them).

You are slowly but surely getting on my nervs with your constant plugs about GQ tires.

First of all, have you ever even tried Speedmind tires? Everybody I know who tried them kept running them.

Secondly, if you want to sell tires here, you should start a commercial thread like the other shops and dealers.

Oh and btw, these tires look nothing like Speedminds.

SM have a conical dish rim. Twisters look verymuch like another tire from GRP......
