Browse a Wide Selection of RC Wheels and Tyres
There are many styles of RC Car wheels and tyres, each designed for specific types of terrain and driving styles. Some popular types of RC Carwheels and tyres available in our online storeinclude:
- Slick tires: These are smooth, treadless tires that are designed for use on pavement or other smooth surfaces. They provide good grip on smooth surfaces but may struggle on rough terrain.
- Knobby tires: These tires have deep, aggressive treads that are designed for use on dirt, grass, and other rough surfaces. They provide excellent traction and stability on rough terrain but may not perform as well on smooth surfaces.
- Foam tires: These tires are made of foam and are typically used in racing applications. They provide excellent traction and grip on smooth surfaces and are often used in indoor or carpeted tracks.
- Monster truck tyres: Tyres are large with deep treads designed for use on very rough terrain, such as rocks or mud. They are typically used on monster trucks and other off-road vehicles.
When choosing wheels and tyres for yourremote-controlled cars, it's important to understand the ground you want to be driving on. Your driving style and car type being used are important to make sure the correct style of tyre is used.
How to Choose the Best Tires for My RC Car?
Once you understand the different types of available RC tires, you then need to pick the one that’s most suitable for your RC car. That might seem like a straightforward decision, but the truth is that you should take your time here, carefully assessing your options and needs.
Why? For some, it may look like an unnecessary waste of time, but if you want to get the most out of your RC car, the tyre you pick will have a massive impact on its performance.
Here’s what you should consider when choosing the best RC tyre:
- Surface Type: The type of surface you'll be driving your RC car on matters a lot. There are specialized tires for different surfaces, such as pavement, dirt, sand, and off-road tracks. Choose tires that are designed for the specific surface you'll be using your RC car on.
- Tread Pattern: Tread patterns affect traction and handling. For example, if you're driving on a loose or uneven surface, you might want tires with aggressive treads for better grip. On the other hand, smoother treads are better suited for smoother surfaces.
- Compound: Tire compounds determine the level of grip and durability. Softer compounds offer better grip but wear out faster, while harder compounds last longer but might not provide the same level of traction. Consider the trade-off between grip and durability based on your usage.
- Size and Fit: RC cars come in various scales, and tire sizes are specific to each scale. Make sure to choose tires that are the right size for your car. The diameter, width, and mounting style (hex, pin, or beadlock) need to match your car's specifications.
- Weather Conditions: If you plan to drive in different weather conditions, consider all-terrain or multi-condition tires. These tires are designed to perform reasonably well on various surfaces and weather types.
- Brand and Reviews: Look for reputable brands that are known for producing high-quality RC car tires. At our store, we only offer tyres andRC car tools and accessories from industry-leading manufacturers.
- Type of RC Car: The type of RC car you have also matters. Different types of RC cars (e.g., on-road, off-road, drift, crawler) have different tire requirements. Ensure you're choosing tires that match the intended use of your car.
