Default Rubber Pan Car Tires

Is there a decent rubber tire for pan cars? I have a RJ Speed Legends Car that I bought for a basher a while back and would like to get a set of rubber tires for it, kinda like I had on my Bolink Legends car that was stolen 14 years ago. Only ones I've found so far are the Calandra Racing CLN2314 RT-1 Pre-Mounted GTR Front & Rear Rubber Tires and was wondering if there is anything else out there that I should look at besides these. I don't mind spending the money if they're a good tire, to be honest, just curious.

CRC is the only tire out there for pan cars like the Legends (pro class) and WGT-R and several oval classes..

Thanks Bullfrog!

Been out if things so long that I wasn't even sure if these were still available, let alone anything else.

They seem to be very durable as well. We had a guy running a set that was 3 seasons old and they still were working good. Another plus is you don't need adapters.

Do not confuse these with the Silicone Cap Tires we ran in the 90's, the wide style. These WGT-R tires are your best bet now, if you need a rubber tire.

I've used the CRC rubber tires on a Bolink Legends, it runs great. They last forever.

edit: on both black carpet, and parking lot. Its more economical than foam tires. I get strange looks from people for such an old chassis, but its fun to run.

Thanks again guys, I'm going to look more into those even more now.

I swapped the Traxxas TQ Link Rx I had in it for one of the TQi TSM receivers since it's been just as squirrely as my old Bolink was and this one is only running my left over Traxxas 1/16 Brushed ESC and Servo with a Stinger motor and Duratrax 1/16 Traxxas NiMH Pack (can't remember the mAh) and with the stability set at 50% it would finally go in a straight line........kinda want to go brushless next Before the whole BL Nonsense happens, I have axle questions now too, the stock plastic hub that won't stay tight enough and it shifted enough on me within a few minutes of bashing last night that the gears wouldn't stay meshed and I didn't have the right size wrench with me to fix it. Not sure if I should just get metal clamping hub or look at changing out the whole axle assembly out to something better. Are there any suggestions there too?
