Default Nitro tires?

Im going to be running nitro again this summer. Its been like 3 years since i last ran. Last time i believe we ran jaco's or RPM's for tires. We were running 35 front and 37 or 38 rears. What is your guys opinion on tires. The LHS carries nitro shoes (jaco's) and GQ tires. Whats your guys thoughts on the tires. jaco only makes 38 rears and gq only makes 37 rears. I ran GQ tires on my micro M18 and loved them. What you guys think.

Have a look at the Exeed RC "Enneti" foam tires. They have a wide range of compounds and they won't "break the bank".

The nitro shoes can be had for under 11 shipped a pair, the GQ's under 10 a pair shipped.
The Exceed tires are practically the same price.

Are there any better deals than these 3 options?

The matrix carbon rim is a great price with durability. Also has quality foam. The Exceed I used to run were the light weight version rim. Ran great just not for the person that will bang boards. The other option is Capricorn carbon rim available thru Capamericarc.com. Also a very good rim/tire combo.

I haven't used GQ tires for years. (back when they were orange "BBS" rims). They were an ok tire but not the best. I found the softer compounds tended to chunk easy. You're best to go to your track and see what the other guys are running.

Gq not the best rim. I forgot about Hotrace. I've never used them tho. But I've heard good things. And the hands down best just expensive and no distribution in the US is Zac project the best made!

Check out absolutehobbyz.com

They have a lot of Kyosho foams and take serious pride in quick shipping

If you not on a track you might wanna run harder shores just to save some rubber. If you need more traction just lotion them up or sauce them.
Try 40 shore

I have tried all types of brands. IMO id say go with the Hot Race nylon (white) rims, great durability and performance backed by a great group of guys who also race nitro on road and always keep plenty of inventory!
