EBay Mystery Tires Review


EBay Mystery Tires. Hello thanks for watching. I want to show you these tires I got from ebay. Sometimes you are shopping on ebay for parts and you see something that looks too good to be true. I was looking on ebay and I found these cheap tires. Set of four. With wheels. With foams. The whole set is about 12 usd. Another 4.5 usd to ship them here to the us. This is what you get. I’ve been using these ones already. They have a few different tread patterns. They have different styles of wheel. And they have foams inside. They come like this. They are marked “www.kforce-racing.com”. When they are listed on ebay, they are not called “KForce”. They will be generic from a chinese seller. So you get this whole set. Whole set of four. Let’s open this. I took a chance on this set. When I got them out they were clean like this. I’m trying both tread patterns. I liked this smooth one first. I thought this looked like a good hard surface tire. I find these tread patterns to be basic and good. The rubber is soft. Not the softest. Soft enough to get good performance. They won’t last too long. At this price, you can afford to burn some rubber. The wheels are nice quality. They are as nice as the pictures on ebay. They are not glued. You will need to glue them yourself. Let’s pop one open. They come with foam. With the parts that come in this package… … Everything here is quality., Everything here is good enough to put on your buggy. It is good enough to be an upgrade to the typical Tamiya kit tires. I looked at the KForce-Racing website and found taht this tread pattern is called “The Monaco”. I don’t know if you can see well, the grooves here are shallow. But they are deep enough to make a difference. This is a semi slick tire. It is soft enough and the wheel is stiff enough and the foam is supportive enough to work well on pavement. Look at the profile. It has a medium roundness in profile. Works great on pavement. On hard packed dirt I’ll show you a video here. It’s working on a hard packed dirt surface. It has some loose dirt on top. If you listen to the car go around the turn here… Maybe you can hear… This tire connect with the dirt and tearing some of the dirt away. On hard dirt surfaces, this tire works okay. Don’t think this is strictly for on road. I’ll see how this one works and do a follow up review. Just with these two tread patterns, you are ready for most surfaces. I’ll continue to test these. As of now, I give my enthusiastic support to these tires. These… EBAY MYSTERY TIRES

    Great overview. I actually ordered a set (for 9 bucks). Looking forward to checking it out. Thanks for the tip! Less than half the cost of a Carson set, which I usually refere to as very cheap (plus the tires and wheels broke before the thread pattern was gone). Thanks again.

    That's good that you found a reliable source for ultra cheap wheel/tire kits. It's not as easy in the Trail Truck World….
    They rarely list compounds, so that's a crap shoot. I still haven't found the perfect 96-98mm tires for my CC-01 Landfreeder. I've got 100mm's on it now, but they're just barely TOO big to look Scale.
    Those may make great rear tires for my Holiday Buggy – but fronts are still elusive. The stock ribbed are….OK, but not great. I'm on an extremely tight budget(I'm actually having to save up for a $96 TT-02!)😕

    You've got some great ideas, and I look forward to seeing more! I just subbed. I'm just getting back into the Hobby after being away for about 19 years. The more Scale aspect is what drew me back!

    Thanks for review, they seem to be holding up fine.
    I have DT-02. These will be my next set of rear wheels and tyres for sure. Unfortunately front tyres for RWD buggy are a bit hard to find cheaply. I might just get hex wheel adapters and use these tyres on the front.

    I have these on my Team Associated SC10. The tire height is shorter than the stock height so I changed the pinion gear to have (2) additional teeth to get back to the stock speed. They are great for bashing and getting some street drifting action. Nice video

    These seem pretty good for the price. I think they could be used by companies for RTR vehicles, as they are cheap and have pretty decent performance. My friend was bashing with these and the wheel broke when he landed, but that was his only issue. Nice video.

    I’m currently looking at aluminum wheels with the HSP name brand that look like they’ll work on my Neo Scorcher but I’m waiting for a response to that question from a couple sellers.

    I recently bought cheap 1/8 buggy tires on Ebay called “wilderness nylon wheels” which have a similar thread pattern as Badlands. I am actually quite happy with them. 4Pcs free shipping for $23.

    Cool video! I've had pretty good luck with cheap, ebay, chinese made tires. I have got some for 1/10 buggy, but mostly 1/8 buggy. The only thing with the 1/8 buggy tires is the foam is too soft but the tire and rims are great! I have a set on the way I intend to race with in, 1/8 e-buggy. I'm running a set now with the stock foams and There not too bad but with better foam could be great!
