  • Wheels and tires

    Looking for some current sources for wheels and tires for 1/43 cars. Primarily Carrera Go and SCX. Most of the sources I knew previously are no longer available.

      www.slotcarstyres.com has urethane tires for Carrera Go! rally cars. Not sure what else they would fit.
      I got tires from him for Kyosho DSlot cars; worked great.

        Jel Claws had tires for 1/43rd cars, those are EPDM, not silicone or urethane. The Jel Claws site has gone dead, but there are still tires listed on eBay for 1/43rd scale SCX and Carrera cars.

          Peter ( pfuetze ) is so modest...

          Bill, go to SHAPEWAYS and enter "pfuetze". You will find a big selection of printed wheels. And what is even better - if you need some special dimensions or so, mail Peter and he surely will help you.

          Greetings,

            This was exactly what I was looking for. Some new sources of tires and wheels. I thought I had seen some custom rims on one of Pfuetze's post but wasn't sure where to find it. All that I was aware of are Super Tires for SCX NASCAR, a few JelClaws and a brand called Ortman with look pretty rough in the photos.

              Really liking the looks of Pfuetze’s 3D wheels! Quite a variety of sizes and the Nomad inserts are awesome. A couple of questions come to mind: Will the Nomad inserts fit the 3D SCX NASCAR wheels? How do you source tires for the various sizes?

                i can make the Nomad inserts fit to the SCX Nascar wheels, no problem!

                Carsten in Germany did a selection of tires, partly especially for my wheels, the 11.5 x 7 comes with low profile comes to my mind, also the 10x7 was a special size in low profile.

                for the other sizes - Ortmann is doing great tires in 10mm with 6, 8 and 10mm width.
                They can be fitted to 10mm and 11mm wheels easily. They need to be glued on, but this is easy on the printed wheels. the 11.5 and 12mm can be fitted with the 10mm tires, too, but they are a little stretched (i do not like that), but still work great. you can get the ortmann tires from ebay.
                I paint the printed wheels with Revell color in silver and brush, but i have seen airbrush painting the wheels, too.

                SCX compact tires - Ortmann makes special tires for some SCX cars and Carrera go! cars.
                They fit also on the printed wheels.

                for small projects, there is an Ortmann tire with 9x13x7mm

                for wheel inserts - it is way cheaper to combine wheel insert before printing. i need to know your wishes, than i do the combining and make a one piece print for you on shapeways. there should be some examples already available under the "wheel insert" section of the shop.

                  SCX compact Nascar wheels (3D printed) http://shpws.me/RSGx
                  Nomad style wheel inserts for printed Nascar wheels http://shpws.me/RSGy

                  attention: combined wheel inserts are way cheaper due to the high base costs of the detail material of the wheel inserts! send me a PM if interested.

                    The SCX NASCAR wheels with the Nomad inserts built in sounds like a great place to start! I think I would like to get a batch of those. How many wheels come in a batch and what would the cost be?

                      click on the links posted above - they go directly to shapewayy for the costs.

                      wheels come in 10 packs, so do inserts.
                      if you want a different number just let me know

                        Do they provide a way to get the discount by combining inserts with the wheels, like you recommended? The only Nomad inserts I saw looked like they were too big for the SCX NASCAR wheels

                          no, i have to do the combining on the design programm. shapeways doesn´t offer this.
                          for the Nomad inserts - the inserts in the link posted above are the correct ones! outside diameter 7.4mm to fit into the printed SCXcNascar wheels.

                              Got a message from Shapeways that the wheels are on their way. Much faster than the forecasted date.😎
