    Nice where did they come from may i ask

    As regard to the only tyre you will ever need , I would wait and see about the BRP tyres and wheels , the Americans are loving them ,

    The wider tyres come with the split rim / spacer and foams
    Ddm were selling them off cheap
    I've already got a set but thought I'd grab another whilst they were cheap

    The wheels are the standard elcons for Baja

    A friend on here " Jim the goth "
    Bought loads of em, non left now

    Do you have a link to the American ones lee

    Sent you pm with email

    I've got the soft versions of these elcons and found them great
    But the new set in the pic are mediums and trust me there a swine to get on

    Hoping they last quiet well
    The fronts will, there never on the floor !!
    The grip is unreal, my car, even with my new engine in ever wheelies
    Now with the elcons it's lifting all the time out the bends and I'm running 19 gearing

    From what I have read/heard the onroad BRP tyres are great. The mini pins have had less than favourable feedback though.

    My tyres (when released) will look like those jumbo elcons.

    I hope so, the Elcons might well perform amazingly but they are a dog ugly tyre. Keep the look of the origional buggy Neil, being an old skool lover of it I trust you

    Cant wait to see silverback tires..
    If those are good as your wheels and beadlocks, i think they are best there is, and for sure hostile tires are also top-notch..

    As for above comments on size and looks etc, I totally agree but the grip is something else
    Not used any of my hostiles since
