Default Twister Tires?

I see that Twister tires has a 10 for $105 shipped deal goin on.

What's your experience with these tires? - are they good enuff for
parking lot racing or do they still have quality problems?
I'm thinking 40/40shore on 26/30 for an NTC3.


I don't want to have to resize them - just load and go.

Are there any better deals for 1/10 sedan nitro?

I've been using them on my 8th scale, very good tires. I'd say right on par with the Jacos I was running(and at 1/3 the price, they're a STEAL!!!)

The Twister tires are are the most popular tire ran at our track. Price is right the rims don't break like Jaco and the foam stays on the rim on the 1/8th unlike the jacos.

The best deal you can get more than likely without having to buy from Japan.

Exclamation Twister tires or twister tyres.

Check this out.

If you are looking for a better price deal. then check here. I found that the twister tires are available here Twister tires at a much lower price.

A great thing is that you also get huge discounts when you purchase more tyres.

For instance 145 dollar for 10 sets front and 10 sets rear tires.
(you need to login to get the prices without tax when you are from the US)

You can see the prices drop on that shop when you purchase 5, 10 or 20 sets front and rear tyres. This goes for both 1:10 and 1:8 scale tyres on all available shores.
These tyres compared to Ufra, Pmt, Grp, GQ tires, Jaco, Enneti, Ellegi, grp, speedmind, x-tires, grp gadini, sp racing, GP speedtires deliver great performance for an even better price. I mostly use shore 35, shore 37 and shore 40

These tyres are available for both touring and 1:8 scale cars such as serpent, mugen and kysho. The wear is great on these tires.

In europe several championships are won with these tyres.

Pro-Hobby beats advertised prices on twister tires. Just go direct. [email protected] and if you want them to beat a certain price just send them the info and how many you want and its a done deal.

I had good luck with them on my sedan, but on my 1/8th Mugen the rims are very loose- a lot of sideplay in/out and slightly too large of an axle hole making the wheel wobble.

For sedan I'd try 'em again, for 1/8th- no.

Im sure you must have been using old tyres with old rimms for mugen. About one year ago the rimms where not oke for the mugen 1:8 cars.
But on the rimms i have seen the last half year these rimms fit perfectly on mugen 1:8 scale cars.

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
