AKA Enduro & Wishbone SC tires & Grooved inserts

AKA Enduro & Wishbone SC tires & Grooved inserts

AKA have announced the release of the Enduro and Wishbone tires, designed specifically for 1/10 short course trucks and to fit the stock wheels from all the popular brands. Gil Losi, Jr. and Mark Pavidis designed these tires which feature 2.2”/3” bead design and an inner carcass design made to perfectly fit the industry standard AKA closed cell foams. This results in a much more controlled outer sidewall for more consistent handling and tread wear meaning no more cranking in tons of camber to keep the tire patch flat on the ground. The AKA Enduro tread pattern is an all round good tire for just about any surface condition, while the Wishbone is suited to high bite blue grooved clay tracks or indoor clay tracks. AKA have also released of their next generation of tire foams. Based on the original industry standard closed cell foam insert, their new grooved insert is designed to take advantage of the radial ribs the carcass of their Wishbone and Enduro tires while still providing great performance in the other treads. This new grooved insert design is replacing our original non-grooved insert.
