hi, can any body tell me whether the IWAVER 02 WIDE-10 tire any good to race on carpet? it so cheap. so i 'm thinking to order some 10deg. do you think that iwaver 10 deg. tire is the same with gpm or atomic 10 deg.? thanks.

it's a pretty much vague question...

but generally the softer the tire the better grip... although beware that there is such a thing as too much grip... which may sometimes cause your car to traction roll...

carpets also differ from one make to another... so one type of tire might not be good for all types of carpets...

in the same way, all tires are not made equal... so 10* iwavers, 10* gpm and 10* atomics might not have the exact same characteristics....

i've tried the iwavers and gpm tires... they're pretty soft, and will provide traction for carpet tracks...

You might want to get Foam tires or Atomic Radials (10*)

firelap... not sure, but the tires on the rims that came with the iwaver i got were pretty soft... but not their softest...

i suggest you try ordering over the border in singapore...
here's a link to a singapore track...
