Default On Road tires?? Rubber ones?

Is there such a thing as 1/10th on road rubber tire slicks mounted but i need 30mm for front or back? The standard size is how much? Like the sorex mounted ones?

24mm is the standard race width.
Best options for racing come from: Sorex, RP, Takeoff, Jaco, Powers ect


No one makes 30mm race tires. HPI does make 26mm and some 30mm tires but the 30s are in drift compound= no grip... No to many grippy tires outside the 24mm range

Ive seen some BSR tires that lookes smaller in height but definetly wider than the standard Sorex or CS tires. Tag on it said they were rubber tires for 1/10. Unfortunately BSR site doesnt say much and the hobby store is real far from me to take a look.

BSR tires are mainly for oval cars. They make capped tires that are not legal for touring car racing, but ok for bashing(they make them for touring cars though). They will definatly cost more to buy then normal touring car tires with loose inserts. They also make foams for TC

Not sure if they still make rubber tires that i had used about 6 years ago

BSR does still make capped tires for the oval crowd. They offer foam tires for 1/10 and 1/12 oval, nitro touring, nitro 1/8th scale, electric touring, and 1/12 onroad.

They will be offering the new Jaco Prizm wheel for touring cars, but they have their own wheel for 12th scale.

John does an awesome on his tires. I run the current touring dish wheels down to around a 2.06 before tossing them. They still bite and will NOT come unglued.
