"Clones for Classics"

Let Smilin' Ray help you re-tire!

My slot car tires are made of top quality Polymer Urethane and are track compatible with natural rubber tires.  These tires are sandable and can be glued to the wheels and sanded true (recommended). The inside edge of the tire is unfinished and has no sidewall detail due to the open molding process. This does not in any way detract from their performance.

For optimal performance tires should be glued to wheels with a silicone based adhesive. My personal preference is Household Goop.

Customer Comments:

 

“Got the tires today, all I can say is wow, you just brought an early 60s Testa Rossa back to life!”

I'll take ten (more) pair (Strombecker 1" OD part ST1S). These work really well and we are very happy with them. They fit great on those American Line wheels. We've had some of our best racing with these. They have a good balance of slide and grip.


Steve @ Smith Scale Speedway – New Hampshire

The tires worked great on my original Eldon plastic track. They had very good traction and just a little sliding in the corners, which makes for good racing.

I would like to order 6 Pair of your EHSN tires for Eldon. I just bought a car off eBay that (had tires) I believe were made by you and they get much better traction than the -deleted- I bought..
