Ipanema dealers have access to belted radial rubber slick tires in sizes from 24mm to 30mm for 1/10 scale cars.

They're made the same rubber materials and construction as the bigger GT car tires and don't balloon.

Shore ratings of 35, 40, 45, 50 & 55 are available.





Here's Specs:

Corsa
Width 30 (mm) Diameter ext 67(mm) Profile 9(mm) Scale 1/10

Force
Width 26 (mm) Diameter ext 67(mm) Profile 9(mm) Scale 1/10

Pr
Width 25 (mm) Diameter ext 64 (mm) Profile 6(mm) Scale 1/10

Pr II
Width 24 (mm) Diameter ext 63(mm) Profile 5(mm) Scale 1/10

They are available pre-mounted and ready to race.

Check out the "where to buy" section on the Ipanema website to get them.

I have used the Ipanema 1/10 tires and to be honest they dont last what so ever and the grip is not that great either.

The best Rubber Tires for racing and or bashing 1/10th 20mm cars are PMT Tyres from Italy, they come premounted on rims, they are low profile, comes in 4 different shore hardness, and they have treaded and slick patterns.

We have been racing with them for the past 5 years in our Only Rubber class with excelent results, even with today high power engines...we've tried every single brand in the market, and nothing works well with nitro cars as PMT tyres, we race 1 hour mains and they hold their grip, in dusty parking lots and on preped surfaces.

I don't know who imports PMT in the states, but you should give them a try, you won't regret it.

I got them from the guy that handles the parking lot racing, to be honest i dont know what shore or anything but they felt really soft maybe thats why they didnt last and also affected the grip.

It sounds like you may have used the Ipanema Sintec ProII tires. They are softer shore with soft foam inserts. This tire lends itself more towards 190mm cars and used by a few 200mm nitro drag racers for straight line traction.

For on-road racing use with 200mm nitro cars, the Corsa, Force & PRO tires with firm inserts work much better for you. Shore ratings should be selected by surface conditions, temps, chassis weight, race length & driving style.

Corsa
Width 30 (mm) Diameter ext 67(mm) Profile 9(mm) Scale 1/10

Force
Width 26 (mm) Diameter ext 67(mm) Profile 9(mm) Scale 1/10

Pr
Width 25 (mm) Diameter ext 64 (mm) Profile 6(mm) Scale 1/10

Right now there are only 2 dealers in North America selling these 1/10 scale rubber slicks. Without knowing the dealer you got your tires from, there's no way to make it right.
