This is a set of two AKA Racing Pre-Mounted Grid Iron Short Course Tires, in clay compound. These tires have been pre-mounted on black AKA Cyclone wheels that are intended for use with the Associated SC10 4x4. AKA's indoor or "clay" compound has been finely tuned throughout 2 years of research and development, to provide maximum traction and great performance on clay tracks.
The GRIDIRON SC tire was designed for hard packed tracks that start off with a bit of dust. This design is great outdoor's or as an indoor alternative. The square outer pins and bar center pins allow for great traction and long tire life compared to other small pin tires. These tires feature a 2.2 x 3 bead design and an inner carcass design made to perfectly fit the industry standard AKA closed cell foams, plus they have been designed by Gil Losi, Jr. and Mark Pavidis, so you know they work! The result is a much more controlled outer sidewall for more consistent handling and tread wear. No more cranking in tons of camber to keep the contact patch flat on the ground. The GRIDIRON is suited to high bite blue grooved tracks with little dust where a short pin is a must to keep the truck consistent. Combine this tire with the already successful WISHBONE SC and ENDURO SC, and there is no condition AKA can't handle on an SC truck.
AKA is offering these tires pre-mounted on Cyclone SC wheels because AKA tires work best on flatter style wheels vs. the cone type wheels that leave the tire unsupported. The Cyclone SC has been designed specifically for 1/10 short course trucks and will fit all standard 2.2" x 3" short course tires. All wheels are made from the same proprietary nylon blend as the the AKA 1/8 scale wheels for consistent, bomb proof performance.
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 that AKA offers the best pre-mounts in the industry.
