GQ 1/8th scale soft rims

GQ 1/8th scale soft rims

GQ Tires have announced their new 1/8th scale soft rims and now offers two rim choices for RC racers. GQ’s Pro Rim is a stiff rim that is suitable for warm weather racing and on smooth, high grip, and/or fast surfaces, while their new high tech ‘Soft Rim’ is suitable for racing in cooler weather along with bumpy and low traction surfaces and/or tracks with tight turns that are more technical in design. The ‘Soft Rims’ are stiff on the outer edge which maintains corner speeds then soften going toward the inner edge. This softening of the rims is what gives these tires the extra traction on the types of surfaces mentioned.
