  • Replacement front tires for Carrera classic NASCARS and '57 Chevys

    I have searched several of the webstores looking for replacement front tires for my Carrera stockers. Most stores don't even list them and the ones that do are out of stock. Anyone knowing of a source please direct me that way.

    If you're looking for original equipment replacements, and the front and rear tires are the same, I have a bunch of tires taken of the rear of cars. I put silicone tires on the rear of all my oval track cars and have the originals just lying around. If they'd help you out I can send them to you.

          I havn't been searching Carrera parts lately but a few yrs. ago LEB had by far the best inventory

            LEB was the first place I looked. It is possible that one or two of the tires they do list will fit but they aren't specific enough to be 100% sure. I can order PG tires that are designed as rear tires but the OEM tires are less grippy and are better on the front. BTW I did look through my mountains of tires that were removed and replaced with PG tires but they too have dry rotted, or whatever the failure is called.

              Hi Bob. Why not ask Lynne and Rob who are the owners of LEB.

              My experiences with them have always been stellar! They're quick to respond to questions and there’s a contact form and email on their website.
              Good luck!

                Good idea. I am usually loathe to make phone calls but an email.

                  I found these 4 pair (the tires on stacked 2 high). The 3 pair on the left have 'Decent Decade" on the sidewall and are identical to the ones on the #98. The pair on the right look and fit the same but have 'Carrera' on the sidewall.

                  I'll send these to Bob and hope they're what he needs.

                    Just what the tire changer ordered.
