1/8th Buggy Grid IronThe Grid Iron tire was designed for tracks that are hard packed and or tracks with little dust. This tire design is a great outdoor or indoor alternative. The square outter pins and bar center pins allow for great traction and long tire life compared to other small pin tires.
Innovations:Tread Performance: Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.
Balance: Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it's a priority in AKA tires. Mold components are manufactured to the highest tolerances to ensure the best possible alignment of all the mold components. This results in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.
Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development that AKA brings to the table. In fact, AKA engineers have been responsible for developing some of the most successful tires in off-road racing for a generation. Each compound is tested in labs then rigorously track tested to ensure the highest quality.
Mold Accuracy: AKA tire molds are made in the U.S.A. using the most advance mold-making techniques and processes available. The cost is higher to produce such a precision mold, but its part of an uncompromising desire to deliver the highest quality product available.
Compound: AKA offers 3 different long-lasting tire compounds, each of which is color-coded by a small mark on the sidewall of each tire. AKA offers soft (green), medium (blue), and hard (yellow) compounds that provide superior grip for across the entire spectrum of track conditions. For specific compound information, see our tire application chart to determine which tire is best suited to your track conditions.
Re-sealable bag: AKA was the first to introduce this simple and effective packaging to the r/c car market. Each bag can hold two sets of tires and more importantly can be used over and over. The bag also helps keep them organized and out of the elements which keep the rubber at its best possible condition.
Notes from the team: The Grid Iron tire is a team favorite and is used on the front and the rear of the car in hard packed conditions. This tire combines the forward bite to launch you out of the corners yet still provides a stable feel while cornering.
