1 Pair of Rear, Urethane Slot Car Tires, handmade by Paul Gage.
These tuning tires provide outstanding traction and handling characteristics that wont disappoint!
Very soft tire for plastic or smooth wooden tracks
Rounded profile clears all bodywork and improves cornering over stock shape tire.
This is a great performance tire for the following Carrera 1/32 models: :
Once installed all you need to do is sand the tire lightly to true it up and remove any convex or concave centers, and away you go. This can be done easily using a 120 grit garnet sand paper or emery board, then finish with a 240 or 480 grit. A recommendation from Paul Gage:
If you wish to glue on the rear tires, use a clear nail polish. Just clean the tire with acetone, lightly sand the bead on the hub, paint a generous layer on the inside bead of the hub, paint the outside bead of the tire, then mount the tire. Allow one hour to dry, sand them true, and away you go!

PLEASE NOTE: These tuning tires will look much smaller than the Carrera stock tires you are replacing (in some cases you may even be able to fit the tuning tire, inside the stock tire). Some tuning tires may fit multiple wheels, these tires are made to stretch so Paul doesn't need to have a separate tire available for each type of car.
When installing you will need to stretch the tuning tire over the wheel.. To avoid damage to the car, or wheel, we have found it is easiest to take the chassis off by removing the 4 bottom screws prior to installation.
