AKA Racing tire design is a great outdoor or indoor alternative and will complement the CITYBLOCK and I-BEAM. The square outer pins and center bar lugs allow for great traction and long tire life compared to other small pin tires.
Notes from the team:
The GRIDIRON tire is a team favorite and is used on the front and the rear of the Truggy in hard-packed conditions. This tire combines the forward bite to launch you out of the corners yet still provides a stable feel while cornering.
Tread Performance: Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.
Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it's a priority in AKA tires. Molded components are manufactured to the highest tolerances to ensure the best possible alignment of all the molded components. This results in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.
The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development that AKA brings to the table. In fact, AKA engineers have been responsible for developing some of the most successful tires in off-road racing for a generation. Each compound is tested in labs then rigorously track tested to ensure the highest quality.
AKA tire molds are made in the USA using the most advanced mold-making techniques and processes available. The cost is higher to produce such a precision mold, but it's part of an uncompromising desire to deliver the highest quality product available.
AKA offers 3 different long-lasting tire compounds, each of which is color-coded by a small mark on the sidewall of each tire. AKA offers soft (green), medium (blue), and hard (yellow) compounds that provide superior grip for across the entire spectrum of track conditions. For specific compound information, see our tire application chart to determine which tire is best suited to your track conditions.
AKA was the first to introduce this simple and effective packaging to the RC car market. Each bag can hold two sets of tires and more importantly can be used over and over. The bag also helps keep them organized and out of the elements, keeping the rubber at its best possible condition.
