i wouldnt bother getting rubber tyres for a 1/8th, you wont get much traction on the track but if you are going to race or ust drive on concrete then id suggest you go to your hobby shop and ask and find out what brand those rubber tyres were.

Those tires are for rain conditions. They are $40.00 each! They are no good for dry. They do list a dry tire but , I wouldn't waste my money on them.

yea? I must be stupid or something then, I bought cap tires made for a touring car, bought a bunch of them at $35 ea. I remember one order that was $750. But, I wend 2 years undefeated running a touring car against pan cars on Oval(although not on-road) and when I sold them to a guy in Tenn, he called me several times wanting more.

But I would say that for on-raod, $40 each for a tire to play in the rain is steep. Then again, if you wanted to run your car in the rain, $40 would be nothing compared to the cost of bearings, electronics and anything else you would take a chance of destroying with water. Like if the engine sucked some water into it.
