Tires are one of the most important components of any race car. Tires and wheels play a huge role in performance and stability. Calandra Racing Concepts has been a leader in 1/12th scale tires and wheels for many years, winning the Cleveland U.S. Indoor Championships, the ROAR Nationals, the Snowbird Nationals and the International Indoor Championships with our current "Track Magnet" tire mounted on the revolutionary CRC White Dished wheel. CRC now offers a second 1/12th tire package called CRC "Pro-Cuts". Pro-Cuts are mounted on CRC's new "High Roller 38" (HR-38) wheel. This new 38 mm wheel pushes the outer diameter of the wheel to the ROAR and IFMAR maximum, complying to all ROAR, IFMAR, EFRA and BCRA rules.
CRC Pro-Cuts are mounted with the latest exotic high-grip, long-wear racing rubber and trued to RACE READY sizes. Yes, finally a tire you can take straight from the package to the track, and be competitive! CRC Pro-Cuts are 1.80" in the front and 1.90" in the back. Because the HR-38 rim has a larger outer diameter, the tires feature a race winning "low profile" to reduce side wall flex and add grip. Not only does the low profile increase corner speeds with more traction, the chance of tire damage is reduced with the smaller sidewall.
The new larger rim provides additional clearance in the front suspension area, allowing the racer to add suspension travel.
