1.6 1.7 inch tyre choices ?

Post by Dadio »

Hi everyone , as the title may suggest I'm looking at 1.6 1.7 inch rear tyre options and I was wondering what hidden gems there may be out there .
I know of
pro-line Champion tyres
Kyosho Scorpion re re rear tyres

Ideally I'm looking for a near match to Hirobo Zerda tyres , a staggered 2 and 2 spike pattern or something like a Schumacher full spike failing anything better I'll go for the Pro-Line Champions .
Thanks in advance for any help .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

I thought they were bigger but I'll check it out ,thanks , I think the Optima re re tyres might be close though.

You're probably right. Frog rears are 1.5 i think...maybe if you pull hard

I do like the Frog rear tyres but I seem to remember them not lasting very long .

I've ordered up a set of Optima re re tyres , looks like they should fit .
