    Any news or reports on these, thinking these will be good for winter. Should keep the water out the foams if the glue is good.

    Got mine over a week ago but not had chance to use them

    They look great, I could see them being the end of troublesome beadlocks for me

    If I have one reservation it's that the plastic used for the wheel is very rigid. This could be both good and bad. Will have to see.

    Shame they don't do a big chunky tread as well.

    As soon as I've used them I'll post up.

    I like the look of the tyres, but not so keen on having white wheels, especially for off road use. Being glued means no chance of stripping the tyres and dying the wheels too I guess?

    For sure you won't be able to dye these, mainly because the plastic doesn't look to be the dyeable type.

    They could probably be sprayed with the right paint.

    White doesn't bother me, I'm sure the dirt will clean off!

    They are virtually the same size, within a couple of mm, as my Hostile mini MX mounted onto silverback wheels.



    As an added bonus they are each 100g lighter.

    This is a pic of the inside.



    Because they don't have beadlocks the inner tyre wall is deeper profile, which I think should aid handling - the tyre is evenly spread across the wheel.

    I also think it's the low profile inner wall of stock tyres that causes the beadlocks to be forced out, there isn't much give there.

    100g per wheel is a huge weight saving if you have a full set. Should help the car steer slightly quicker too.

    Cheers Ive now im clicking and buying a rear set, 200g is loads tuck me a few weeks of trail and error to remove 146.5g from my drive train. Now with these thats 346.5g yepee, might lose a tad of grip though. My KK are ripping the grass to bits, the grounds that soft just takes the grass straight out for a good 6ft.

    I'm sure there wasn't a 'tax/vat' box when I placed my last order, it seemed fairly straightforward but then I've ordered a few times from them.

    Well tested these just now, coming from KK they clearly don't have the same grip. But wow the baja is now a total different animal, forgot how good it is to power slide.
    Been driving on the road and can confirm evan with the first outing they will last, not slagging or naming other tyres but these are good.
    My baja hit 19720k don't no how fast that is but at 16700k was 51mph and no probs at all, very stable and no blowing.
