Cool Front Tires Wobbling...2WD Buggy...

Guys, I just got in a shipment of tires, and the front tires are on the rims...They are not glued yet...I put them on the buggy and gave them a spin, and they are wobbling...It's not the rims, it's the actuall tire...It's probably going to have negligable effect on handling and might go away after awhile, but's it's annoying the heck out of me...Is there anyone else who has this problem and is there a solution to the problem...

As alway thank you for your time and opinions...Racer53

It's normal.

You could always balance them if it's really bugging you.

Could be the way the foams are stuffed in the tire. I've seen it many times and you need to "work" the foams around in the tire, it should go away. You need to do this before gluing them, once glued you might not be able to get them "right"

I think it will affect the handling. would you put wobbly tires on your real car and do 60mph? your r/c machine is doing 200 or 300mph to scale. we spend hours reading sets ups, changing shock oils, putting on k springs or a myriad of other things to get the car to stay planted. any extra wobble that you have that the other don't means slowness.

i binned the tyres(tires).

Thanks, Racer53

once you run on them for a few, the inserts will somewhat "align" themselves.

Just one more reason I love CC foams....if that truly is the issue and not the tire itself.

I run Closed Cell in the rear tires, but use the stock foam for the front tires...

Didn't mean to imply that I run CC in the front, I don't, it's just the nice thing about them. I've yet to find a CC soft enough to run in the front on a 2wd buggy. 4wd buggy is different, I run them there.

I spent some time with the foams and made sure they were in place correctly and then tried them again...MUCH better, hardly any wobble at all...

Thanks guys, Racer53

I've run 1/10 scale buggy and a little tire wobble is not an issue on a non drive wheel vs a drive wheel.

Speed is speed regardless of scale. A baseball going 60mph is going the same 60mph as a car on a highway. If you wanted to scale the speed, you would have to scale time and distance as well which would have you back at square one.
