RC Tyres

RC Tyres

RC tyres are probably the most important part of your RC Cars or RC Plane. Not only do they help your RC model move, RC tyres are also the first shock absorbers for your car and make the ride smoother. In planes, RC tyres are used to taxi RC Aircraft while also bearing the entire brunt of the first impact on landing.

Unlike radio controlled gadgets, RC tyres have been developed ever since the invention of the first RC car. Over the years, the compound and manufacturing style of these RC tyres has evolved to make them more durable, reliable and road-worthy. While wood have a look at, Bicycle Collectibles was initially used in the early days, plastic, also see, Memorabilia Display Cases foam and rubber are the more commonly used compounds these days.

When going in for RC tyres for your model, it is wise to choose a tyre depending on the type of surface your vehicle would run on. There are several manufacturers also see, CB Radio Scanner who provide on-road and off-road RC tyres and each type is extremely independent of the other in characteristics.

On-road RC Tyres

On-road tyres are completely slick, i.e. devoid of any treads on the tyre surface. In RC Toys, and even some models, these tyres are made of plastic why not visit, DIY Plans and are generally hard. This makes them prone to quick wear also look at, Hangar 9 RC Models and tear. PVC or ABS pipe are also used where the RC drift tyres are concerned.

On-road tyres are also available in foam. Solid and slick, these RC tyres are a combination of foam and rubber or foam and silicone. The amount of foam in the tyre is inversely proportional to the durability of its compound. Pieces of foam tend to break off when driven on asphalt or even carpet, also see, Digital Camera Zoom and they tend to pick up debris quite easily.

Off-road RC Tyres

Rubber RC tyres are generally used in off-road vehicles and are available in soft, medium or hard varieties. These tyres come with foam inserts and have larger sidewalls, to maneuver on uneven and rough terrains. They have a variety of tread patterns and can be used on all types of surfaces. While soft rubber RC tyres are ideal for hard surfaces, the opposite works for hard rubber tyres.

Foam inserts give the tyres shape as they aren't filled with air, try, Tamiya RC Models as normal car tyres are. These inserts are normally glued into the insides try, Whisks in Jewellery Making so as to ensure that they stay in place. look at, Robot Supplies - Robotic Supplies

It is extremely important to maintain your RC tyres well in order to extract maximum usage out of them, and also ensure that your RC model runs smoothly. While you can wash off dirt and mud off your tyres, in most cases, adhesive tape is good enough to remove dust.
