I used the Twister tires for a good portion of the season last year and compared to Jaco(what I was using previously) I thought they worked just as well and had the added benefit of actually fitting the axles better than the Jaco rims.

Are you referring to 1/8th rims or sedan rims?

1:8 scale mugen tyres.

How about a price of 27 dollar for 1 set front plus 1 set rear on mugen 1:8 scale. Yoo have to purchase 20 sets front and rear though
If the design has changed then I may try them again. I liked the prices and service from Omar, but the rims were not up to snuff. It was early 2006 I was using them and the rims were just too loose on the axle. The ones I used looked like the pics on his website- maybe he should update the site

THE SEDAN TIRES ARE NEW RIMS VERY STRONG THE INSIDE OF RIM HAS RAISED LINE OF PLASTIC WHICH STIFFENED THE INSIDE. ALOT LESS FLEX

Excellent tires for the price!

My favorites are Kawaharas but i'm not willing to pay the $$ for them. Twisters are almost as good but they're very close.
