This is a set of two Schumacher "Block" 1/10 Buggy Rear Tires.
Schumacher Tire Compounds:
- Green: Medium Compound. Slightly softer than Blue, generally used as an all around compound and works well in both wet and dry conditions.
- Yellow: Soft Compound. The racers choice! The benchmark tire compound for all others to try and beat. Excellent choice for dry conditions.
- Silver: Super Soft Compound. The ultimate dirt/dust tire
NOTE: These tires do not include foam inserts.

They have mega forward bite,
Almost too much side bite (they can be a bit edgy when new.)
MUCH longer tire life than DBoots Multibyte or Schumacher Mini Spikes.
The mounting bead is very narrow; I ended up mounting them to the inner ribs of the wheel rather than the normal outer ribs.
They are a bit smaller than the 2.2" wheels and the compound is very hard; so its a bit of a struggle stretching it over the wheels.
I am very impressed with the grip and handling of these tires with closed cell foam inside. The other tires mentioned above tend to last about 1-1.5 race days before they worn out. I have 2 race days on these (TQ'ed and Won both race days!) and they still have much of their life left; I'd have to guess 75-80%. I wouldn't hesitate to say these will last me at least 6 race days probably more; I'll have to see how the traction fades as they wear.
So from a handling and budget standpoint I can overlook the mounting difficulties; and highly recommend these for short pile astroturf.
Update: These things last, and last. I've only gone thru 2 pair since February. That is racing average 6 times per month (some weeks twice, some weeks once.)
