Yeah it was something insane. I thought these wheels would end up being something not desirable. Maybe they were old, but the auction they were on ebay said blow out tire sale.

After that I never really saw the guy. I also picked up 45shore ellegi foam tires that are those yellow spoked serpent looking rims.

I probably bought like 4-5 sets of rubber and foams from the guy and it costed maybe $40 shipped.

I have two sets of Ellegi mounted rubbers for bashing. I have a full set of 45 shore, and a full set of 50 shore. Got then for less than $20 on ebay.

The problem with these wheels are that they seem to be assembled by a 10 year old kid. Excess glue was not wiped. Tires were not mounted evenly. I glue tires better than this! Oh well, it was cheap and since I'm only bashing for now I wouldn't mind getting more. For racing, I'm going to mount my own.

hey guys

do you guys run the same heat range tyre all round.
Example sorex 36 front and rear.

in my experience i have had 2 experiences where i used a warmer heat range tyre in the front. take off 27's at the front and take off 32's at the back and found my car to handle quite well, without the rear tyres over heating and then making the rear break lose.
