Mounted Nubz Tire 143x68mm S Compound on Dish Wheel White

HPI Racing is proud to introduce the next level of Savage and truggy performance: Mounted Nubz Tires! The Nubz tires feature an innovative narrow design for accurate steering response and quick acceleration on the track. The high performance rubber compound is soft and sticky, optimized for high grip on dirt tracks. The rounded contour allows consistent traction on uneven surfaces, high grip in the corners, and low resistance on straightaways. The race-tested Nubz tread pattern and soft compound rubber provide superior grip on dirt surfaces for fast lap times. Internal tire ribs allow the use of soft compounds while adding strength to the tire for extreme durability and helping avoid deformation at high speeds. The included precision molded inserts fit perfectly inside the tires, providing accurate support. No trimming necessary!

Specially designed dish wheels have a horizontal wheel groove which isolates the glue joint from centrifugal force, increasing the life of the glue for less tire and wheel separation. Oversized 17mm hex design strenghtens the hub/wheel connection to prevent stripped wheels with powerful engines and during extreme driving. The wheel itself is molded from high strength nylon, and the lightweight Race-Fit dish design delivers sleek aerodynamics and protection from dirt. The overall weight of the mounted Nubz tires is 35% lighter than the stock Savage wheel and tire, delivering faster lap times and improved handling.

Sold in pairs, the Nubz tires mounted and glued on dish wheels. Three different wheel colors are available: white, black and yellow. Nubz tires fit truggies and buggies that use 17mm hex hubs, and will fit the Savage when used with HPI 17mm Hex Hub Conversion Set (#87229) or HPI Universal Joints with 17mm hex hubs (#87233).

I'll have a Nitropolitan...

4 parts Sidewinder Race Blend 30%
2 part Nitro Speed Scent (Crazy Cotton Candy)
1 part Nitro Speed Scent (Very Cherry)

Shake and strain into a chilled glass.
Garnish with a lime wedge.

They will be better for handling and lighter for more speed, but they won't last 20 minutes on a savage, the weight will be heavy and the tourque from the engine will wear the nubz down to nothing. Nub tires do the same on buggies, on a truck they will wear faster due to the weight.These are only good for people that are serious about racing and have either a sponsor or the money to go and buy a new pair after every race.

That would be a cool tire to put on a buggy, give it mroe ground clearance...
