This is a pair of AKA Racing EVO tires with GRIDIRON tread design pre mounted on yellow wheels for 1/8th scale Truggies. The GRIDIRON tire is designed for tracks that are hard packed and or tracks with little dust. This AKA tire design is a great outdoor or indoor alternative. The square outer pins and bar center pins allow for greater traction and a longer tire life when compared to other small pin tires. The EVO version of the GRIDIRON has been revised with more tread density for better performance and wear characteristics.
The new EVO Truggy tires feature the new ROAR legal 1/8th scale Truggy bead design and a redesigned carcass shape that includes internal ribbing. The new bead design mimics the 1/8th scale buggy bead design which makes for easier assembly and a stronger bond between the wheel and the tire.
The carcass shape has been refined to take advantage of the new Truggy bead design. And internal ribbing has been added to minimize tire growth at high RPM and support the tire contact patch during cornering. All of this adds up to improved handling and lower lap times.
AKA Tire/Wheel Features:
- Tread Performance - 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 tire goes into production.
- Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development Gil Losi brings to the table. In fact, Mark and Gil 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.
- Balance: Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it's a priority in AKA tires. Mold components are manufactured to the highest tolerances to ensure the best possible alignment of all the mold components. This results in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.
- Mold Accuracy: AKA tire molds are made in the U.S.A. using the most advance mold-making techniques and processes available. The cost is higher to produce such a precision mold, but its part of an uncompromising desire to deliver the highest quality product available.
- Assembly Quality: AKA Pre-Mounts are all hand assembled using AKA Premium tire glue and are double checked for adhesion quality. There is no doubt we have the best pre-mounts in the industry.
