I prefer Super G tires for both my 1/8 and 1/10 touring car. My second choice is CRC for the TC. I'll also use Yokomo and TRC if nothing else is available, but try to stay away from the TRCs as much as possible. I liked the way Ellegis performed on my TC, but they constantly chunked. Prolines are crap.

My understanding is the tyres are ALL the same, but named and manufactured different to suit different car manufacturers.

FAST are made for Mugen
ELLIGI are made for Serpent
POWER are made for Kyosho.

I like the Zac tires. They seem to last a little longer than what we were running (TRC and ProLine mostly).
