We have tested these as a slip on replacement and they give excellent results even on a highly rubbered in track. We did not find a need to glue them on which is good news for racers not comfortable with tire gluing and truing. All we needed to do here was lightly sand to remove the shine on the tire surface and they gave excellent grip comparable to trued tires from other brands. We did find on Scaleauto you will need to narrow the rear axle as these tires feature a bulge on the sidewall that does not allow direct slip on replacement. But other than that and a light scuff nothing needed to be done here to get very competitive lap times. Personally we would prefer them without the bulge but if you do not want to move your wheels in then it is easy to shave off part of this bulge on the sidewall, or mount the tire around the other way and lightly radius the unfinished edge of the tire.

Super Tires on a BRM axle 

 

  •        What you see in picture #1 is a new Super Tires® tire and BRM wheel S-014.
  •        The final O.D. diameter after mounting is 1.103”.
  •          The contact patch is .611”, not including side radius (on one side of the tire only).

 

 It is easy to tell which are Silicone and which are Urethane from the Dealer packaging as Urethane tires come with an orange description card and Silicone with a white card.

So ask for these at your Scaleracing LLC Dealer, and if your Favorite Store or Raceway does not have them get them to call Alan @ Scaleracing LLC 1-253-255-1807 to order.  

 Here is the Scaleauto replacement tires fitted to a Scaleauto axle.
