  • Aurora Hot Rod Tires

    My club races a couple of classes that use the Aurora Hot Rod chassis. We have a Jalopy class.....

    and a vintage Indy class......

    The rear tires must be at least 0.460 inches in diameter and 0.150 inches wide. The Super Tires Hot Rod tires, HR 430s, are too small in diameter, so I use tires by another make that have been sanded down. I was advised that Tyco 460R tires (460 X 275) could be cut to narrow them down and there are also AFX Low Pro 460Rs (460 X 215) that are a little wide. It would be nice if there was a Super Tire that was the perfect size. I know that there are a number of other clubs that race similar cars, so I was wondering if there was enough of a demand for these tires to justify coming out with a new size.
    If you are interested please post something.

    A lot of drag racers use the hot rod tires stretched on to the 4 gear rears. Having a larger diameter available would be great.

      I spoke to Nick about these tires recently. There seems to be a rather limited demand for this size. Yesterday's Sizzler race included our Jalopy class that uses tires of this sort. While I was preparing my cars for the race I found that the tires on two of the cars had stretched and were slipping on the wheels. I had to cut down two sets of 0.50 inch diameter tires to replace those, but one tire tore when I was taking it off of the wheel and I had to do another set. Super Tires are nearly impossible to tear and they are less likely to get permanently stretched. The other side of the coin is that Super Tires are very difficult to turn down, so tires that are the correct diameter are necessary.
      The hitch with coming out with a new size is that the molds are very costly, so a lot of tires must be sold just to cover that cost. There is another maker that offers tires that are the correct size and they are a robust formulation that is similar to Super Tires, but that maker is going out of business and now is selling off his inventory. If no one is offering this sort of tire there might be more of an incentive for Super Tires to sell them. If anyone out there is interested post here or contact Super Tires directly.
