        If I recall correctly at one time Jel Claws sold tires directly to the public from their own website, or perhaps that was from a Facebook or ebay page. When my computer crashed last year any link that I might have had was lost and a Google search only turned up other vendors that have at least some Jel Claws.

            There do not seem to be any Jel Claws on that site.

              The link policy on this site is endlessly and needlessly frustrating.

              Go to the site [ innovative hobby supply dot com ]

              From the drop down menus at the top of the page, select
              -> Products
              -> Jelclaws Slot Car Tires
              -> 1/24 Scale Slot Car Tires
              -> 1/32 Scale Slot Car Tires
              -> 1/43 Scale Slot Car Tires
              -> 1/64 Scale Slot Car Tires


              Jel Claws were the first replacement tires I found when I started in this hobby a few years ago. I found them at my local hobby shop. But after trying a bunch of other tires I'm not really a fan. My current favorite are [ ho tires direct dot com] tires. They come in just about any size you might want and work well on my plastic track.

                Great info every one I'll be checking these sites for my tire needs, and plan on trying out other tire brands also.

                  Thanks Axle for that info. What fooled me on the Innovative site was the link to Jel Claws on the opening page, if you hit Shop now that goes to a dead end.
                  Be aware that different types of tires may not always play well with each other. I normally run silicone tires on my track, those leave a residue on the track surface. From time to time I test tires for a maker that has both silicone and urethane tires. If I run urethane tires on my track they soon get coated and loose much of their grip. A good surface cleaner will remove the coating and restore the grip until the tires get coated again. If I need to test urethane tires I have to strip the track down with lighter fluid and run hundreds of laps with urethane tires before the testing begins. I have a MaxTrax, which is made of Sintra, things might be different on a regular ABS plastic track or a routed wood track. I have only run Jel Claws once, I can't recall if they had the same problem as urethane tires.

                    Super Tires .460" with radius on the outside edge is a direct replacement.
                    Works fine for nice, smooth, running... just like the Mega G+ chassis!
                    Black silicone, of course. -- Ernie

                        I seem to recall that the Jel-Claw front tires for Tomy cars may interfere with certain closed wheel shells, but it’s been a while.

                        So even though they are a little stickier than ideal, I put Jel-Claws fronts on open wheel cars and cannibalized OEM fronts that are still good. Long term solution may have to be “razor” front wheels I suppose, once all my rubber fronts dry out and crack. I’m not a stickler for “realism” and generally enjoy things about slot cars that some might find goofy, so that works out.
