This is a pack of two AKA Racing "EVO" Typo Front 2wd Buggy Tires. The TYPO is a very low tread pattern that has been optimized for hard-packed indoor tracks. The carcass features the 1/8 scale EVO style bead, combined with a refined tread profile.
NOTE: These tires are only compatible with AKA EVO 2wd front wheels.
EVO Bead: The EVO bead design uses an 1/8 scale style L-shaped bead mount. This allows the user to glue the tire to the wheel more effectively, creating a much stronger glue bond.
Red Insert (Soft): The red insert is designed to soak up the big bumps with its fluted I.D. while still holding its shape in the turns to increase corner speed and consistency.
Tread Performance: Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers Gil Losi, Mark Pavidis and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.
Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development Gil Losi brings to the table. In fact, Mark and Gil 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.
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.
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.

AKA "EVO" Typo Front 2WD Buggy Tires (2) (Super Soft)
I picked these up along with a set of rear Typos. My track went from hard-packed and dusty to sugared and high-grip/high-abrasion. I've been running these on the front during both track "styles" and love them. I'm not a huge fan of the rears but the fronts give good traction that isn't incredibly aggressive. After several hours of run times the tires are starting to show slight wear but are probably good for several more practice and/or race days.
