scaleauto makes some: http://www.132slotcar.us/store/index...783dadc0cb9161

the 2007 is the softest compound. 2008 is medium and 2009 is hard.

i'd go with the 2007, although depending on the car, track, and what tire treatments you are allowed to use, medium might be a better option. i ran soft compound on my GT40, cleaned with wd40 on a wood track and the car was getting so much traction that it was flipping in the corners. i'd still go with soft on a wood track, but i'll be careful not to clean them so much next time.

Default Scaleauto tires rock

We switched to Scaleauto sponge tires, no glue and now cars that were a challenge to get working well fly.

These tires really work, we run the SC-2009 on the Group C cars and SC-2007 on LMP cars. Same size just a little more grip. I find the SC-2009 is perfect for most cars, they even work well on NINCO track.

For cars that you cannot fit the 11 mm wide tire under Scaleauto also makes a 9mm wide SC-2018.



SC-2007N for LMP cars, white band (soft) Pro Comp



SC-2008N GT Cars, yellow band (medium) Pro Comp 2.



Sc-2009N for Group C. Red (hard) Pro Comp 3.



9mm wide works great on Avant Slot.

Default I posted with titles but here goes Jay

Pro Comp 3 Red is hard, we use on NINCO Track and for cars that do not need too much grip. Also to create speed difference between classes.

Pro Comp 2 Yellow is medium great on a high grip track.

Pro Comp White is soft we use on the fast class cars.

Nsr does make a couple different glued and trued foam tires, part number 9025 and 9025, but in my experience their wheels don't usually fit on slot it axles.

If you want to clean them use my Love Lotion...... search that and you can make it yourself. Works better than WD40.

If you want to use NSR foam preglued tires, simply use an nsr axle.

Currently the NSR foam tires are the "World's Fastest" 1/32 scale wheel/tire as established during the Land Speed Record event held in Cincinnati, Ohio.

There are also multiple traction compounds to suit your specific track/car.

foam tires are very easy to sand. either on a tire truing machine, or even just on a piece of sandpaper held underneath the rear tires. i had to sand mine quite a bit to get them to fit under my gt40.
