Unhappy Where To Buy 1/12 Scale Rubber/Treaded Tires

Hi, I have a RC12LW that I am finding it impossible to find any form of rubber or non-foam tires. I have gone to every hobby shop I could find anywhere near me, but nobody can help me. Does anyone know where I might be able to locate some rubber's?

i'm not sure if they actually sell them but BSR's website for rubber cap tires say's '1/12th coming soon!' here : http://www.bsr-racing.com/cap/

Also their '2006-2007' catalogue says, 'to be released spring 2005'. anyone?

They don't make rubber tires for 12th scale. They make cap tires though which are foam tires covered in silicone. I think BSR sells them.

Rubber tires work horribly on pan cars.

BSR makes rubber cap tires. They are for oval racing.

Most 1:18 off road/street tires are about the same outside diameter as 1:12 foams.

Maybe some adaptor rims could be made for 1:12 but I really doubt they would perform like foams. but could look cool as a shelf queen.

Untill then try the capped tires.


Here are some 1:18 tires for RC18R
