Try monotuning tires. They are $11 a pair on www.kinetixrc.com. They are often better than the cheaper tires because they dont chunk as much, as wear less.

I second that. I'm very pleased with my monotuning tires. Great prices too.

Thanks bro

For 2 pairs its a buck cheaper than OPM...

Does he ship out next day or does he ship when the auction ends...OPM ships next day, takes about 10 days to get to my door.

Can't complain, because of these guys I can stay in the sport

BTW: How much does Ron (Atomic) charge to ship the mono-tuners?

KAT,
He ships when you buy, the auction doesnt end until he runs out of his listed quantity. The shipping is also a lot cheaper than his website

Ron Atomic shipping is usually five bucks.

i got blasted by lots of folks last time i mentioned trying to save a few dollars by ordering from hong kong. i guess they have deeper pockets than most of us. by the time they are on my doorstep ever dollar under $10 is basically like free tires every $100 i spend. that goes along way when i also have twins to feed.

Lol those folks can shove some foam up there a$$, not every body in this hobby is a millionare or fully sponsored. I buy from both my hobbyshop and online, but if im going to save half as much online, im not going to waste my money in the shop... i just cant afford it.
