ive never heard of this piece? Is there a part number or description somewhere about it? Had Roche WGTR for years and didn't know anyone made any option parts..

How would this benefit the set-up of the car on a medium size track with medium traction

New tires sure make the car faster. Same as 1/1 scale.

The newer tires (almost 2 years ) are faster but mine and several others have noticed a weird wear pattern and it happens fairly quick. The tire will show a depression about 1/4 inch in from the outside. Just something we have seen.

Front, rear or both? Is this the infamous "death ring"?

Any truth to the new tires being a softer rubber?

This has been discussed on & off for the past season or so. High wear rate and graining. I asked Dumper about it at Mile High Indoor Champs and I was told they had no knowledge of this and they had still been running the same set for a couple years now. Makes it even worse when they are close to $80/set and front or rear isnt available separate.

Not in the same location and much different in appearance. Ring of death was inside edge and close to the shoulder, This is outside edge and in further. You can run the tires a long time with it but it is the eventual end of the tires life. It will start the first race weekend on the fronts first.

hate to say it as I love this class but it's dying in the midwest and northwest because of the tires. In fact lots of people are preparing for the switch 'back' to foams. would be nice to see some other players in the tire game

That would be sad to see. I came from WGT which was the foam class. I can tell you though even at $80 a set, it is still cheaper to run the rubber. To run at the top level you will use several sets of foams at a major like the indoor Champs. Just look at 1/12 scale for that. 4 sets for racing and 3+ for practice. That is fairly typical for the "A" and probably "B" groups. Going back to foams will cause that same push.

Class is growing for us in the NorthEast. Guys that have never driven 1/12th scale are joining in, which was the goal in the first place. If it fizzles out elsewhere, that good for us because it will be easier to get inventory.
Rubber tires that exibit some unsual wear, still seems to take longer to happen, has less of an effect on performance, and is easier to address - than a chunked or ripped foam tire.

^ both very good points. I think the shift was sometime last year when the CRC tires would only last maybe a couple of club races and the performance would drop off. I'm talking a new set/month. The last set our crew has been on has lasted longer. I'm on club race #6 with this set with consistent performance.
