  • What tire

    I have a set of nsr 5005 wheels tired some 1425 super tires silicone and they are very dished out. Only thing on the nsr site is rubber looking for some sillies. Any information would be very helpful. Thanks in advance, Tim

    Very helpful tool.

    It will tell you that Quick Slicks CB20, CB21, CB22 or CB23 will fit that wheel.

      Or to save some pennies, maybe you could try filling the air gap in the centre ridge with masking tape or similar going around and around until it's the same height as the alloy.

          Thank you Cj I will give them a try, now just gotta figure the correct size I’m running 1425 and they are I think about an .804 I wanna go. A little on ride height. Wobble I have some auto trim tape I will give that a try I’m not a big fan of the nsr air rims.. Thanks for the help guys. Tim

            The CB23 will be the closest in size to the 1425 if you want a direct swap. Are you planning to glue and true or run as slip-ons? Either way, they are a good choice and with 4 different ODs you should be able to get the ride height you want. Good luck!

                Or...........you could glue some strips of sponge tires between the two flanges,.....true them so they are just proud of the flanges, then glue/true your tires.

                This will allow the tire to compress a touch more, and, progressively, which will aid handling and grip.

                Cheers

                On the top is a sponge doughnut....this happens to be a Scaleauto sponge tire.

                The second picture shows the tire cut into strips and glued (rubber contact cement) to the wheel.

                The last shot is of the sponge tires trued.....just a tad higher than the wheel ribs...............glue and true your tires !!

                    Yes in deed that looks like a very solution for air ride rims. Thank you Chris.👍 Tim

                      That is a clever way of filling in that gap of those types of tires .

                          More importantly it improves performance..

                            I have used O rings to fill some of mine as a test. Just another option.

                              That's why I keep BSCRA foam cuttoffs.
                              ...another option if you want something more solid is a pair of 'O' rings with a dab of superglue to hold them together once they're in the wheel then skim them down.
