Then the tire will slide right on the wheel if you work quickly. the plastic tire horns do help to get the tire started since the rubber's I.D. is a fair amount smaller than the plastic wheel's O.D. And another tip....when the rubber is worn out or damaged, if the wheels are still in good shape, it's easy to get the old rubber off. for that, I kept a large coffee can (witht eh plastic snap on lid) full of thinner. Toss the used wheels and tires in there and let them soak overnite. The solvent will dissolve the glue and the old rubber will slide right off, leaving a bare wheel that's ready to receive a new donut. Heck, way back in the day before the cars had ride height adjusters and when we all ran greens on both ends of the car, when my rears got too small, I'd use this method to slide the rear donuts off. After they dried out, I'd mount used rear donuts onto front rims and use the rubber some more. Now that's when RC racing was super cheap.
Ha! I remember soaking the rear foam off of the rear wheels and then gluing them on the fronts!! BEWARE! Most of the new plastic wheels will dissolve if you soak them in lacquer thinner to get the used foam off!!!!!! You can chuck them up in a tire truer and grind the old rubber off, hit them with a sanding stick and glue on new foam.

Well I got my R12 today and I did comparing to my RC12R5.1 and the R12 rear pod is narrow than RC12R, from the centerline of the car to the left...( not the motor side)
So I put the RC12R5 complete rear axles assy. in my R12 with the jaco tires ,Bingo..
Now I'm using all my jaco tires with the RC12R5 axles good to go...

btw I think most of the 12th scale axles all interchangeable except the new R12

Hmm, that seems like a good option for regular racing when you don't feel like gluing a bunch of tires all the time.

Yeah, they can all fit one another. Just wasn't sure if the r12 did anything different on sizing.

I should have said "Dopest Looking"

Front end is pretty awesome, sorta elaborate, but obviously gets the job done.

Biggest avgantage I think with the yokomo wheels is there is less rim flex. In time someone will make aftermarket pre mounts possibly

not sure about that...I think mounted in the middle wheel might make the differnece,less flex and more stable...plus the R12 front end is narrow around 4mm compare the RC12R5 and the rear is the same....
