This is the AKA Racing pair of 1:10 Gridiron SC Soft Pre-Mounted Tires with Red Insert for the Team Associated SC-10 4X4. The AKA Racing Gridiron SC tire was designed for tracks that get hard packed but start off with a bit of dust. This tire design is a great outdoor or an indoor alternative. The square outer pins and bar center pins allow for great traction and longer tire life, compared to other small pin tires.
The AKA Gridiron SC has an innovative inner carcass design made to perfectly fit the industry standard AKA 1:8 buggy closed cell foams. This results in a much more controlled outer sidewall for more consistent handling and tread wear.
The R-Line pre-mounts also feature our new soft red insert. The red insert is designed to soak up the big bumps with its fluted I.D. while still maintaining its shape in the turns to increase corner speed and consistency.
Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers Gil Losi, Mark Pavidis and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each and every tire goes into production.
The long life of the AKA tire is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development Gil Losi brings to the table. Each compound is tested in labs and then rigorously track tested to ensure the highest quality.
Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it's a top priority in AKA tires. Mold components are manufactured to ensure the best possible alignment, resulting in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.
AKA tire molds are made in the U.S.A. using the most advance mold-making techniques and processes currently available.
