"G" tires do look good... are they belted? All I think that tire needs is tread right in the midle of the tire.

Nomatter what I tell you if you don't try you can't judge...on dry surface they grip almost like sicks...and it's the best tire on wet I've ever tried.

No "G", Im not disagreing with you, Im just talking realety. You know and I know in a real car good rain tires have the tread line rining thru the middle.
Is there RC races in the rain? or wet surface?

No no I know you didn't disagree! I mean that they are cheap and they worth trying that's all! Race in wet has happened to me in the past. All of us who used these tires on our cars did pretty well and kept going on track. The ones that used hard foams or other brand semislicks were dssapointing.

Of course they are! There's also another set of softer ones with harder compound rims that are better bust cost a bit more. They look the same but I can't remember the number of them.
