These 1/8-scale Buggy Tires are pre-glued and mounted on yellow dish wheels. These tires are designed for on-road (street use), and fit all popular 1/8-scale nitro and electric buggies. The slick-type design provides increased life on street and asphalt surfaces, or any high abrasion surface that typically destroys off-road racing tires.

I will be buying some more sets of these as they are too well priced and offer good traction on indoor damp clay. I do use Liquid Wrench penetrating spray as a tire prep and it turns these tires pretty gummy.
Fitting up Losi on-roads, I hot-lapped my MBX7 at Gulf Coast Speedway, Texas. It's a national-level on-road track with lots of twists and turns and a brutal back-straight. The Losi's scrubbed in well and held to an unprepared asphalt surface well. They survived kissing the bang boards with no apparent damage. I did not use tire sauce. Losi chooses to vent the wheel with two largish holes rather than vent the tire. Not my preference, but it seems to work well for this application. Wheel tightens down firmly with the standard Mugen wheel nuts and does not work loose during hot laps.
On the starter box, one tire looked like it might be out of balance, but it never displayed any adverse habits during scrub in. Later in the session, that was gone. I'm satisfied with the Losi 1/8 on-road and it's now my standard-A tire for when I run my MBX7 on-road.
You definitely can't beat the price on these too, ~$15.99 / pair? Awesome!
They seem to wear well and get surprisingly good traction. I recommend them.
