Please refer to our TIRE-WHEEL CAR CHART to verify if this Louise RC tire set is suitable for your RC car.
Due to the extreme loads during driving, cornering and high jumps, the design of the wheel and the materials used are extremely important. The proper flexibility and strength allow the Louise RC wheels to withstand these heavy forces.
The Louise RC wheels are made of a mixture of high quality nylon granulates, charged with fiber or without. These composites have been specially developed by Dupont® for Louise RC.
The tires are mounted either with special preformed foam inserts or with cut-to-size foam inserts. The inserts are selected in a specific density and size in order to guarantee perfect dampening and form stability of the tire.
Mounted - Glued
Due to the extreme forces the tire must firmly bonded to the wheel. Louise RC takes the highest care in bonding the tires properly. For years they have been searching to find the best way to glue the tires well but also in a clean way. Today Louise RC is considered one of the best in the RC industry. The tires are glued with a special rubber cyanoacrylate glue. This glue has been specially developed for Louise RC to guarantee a perfect firm bond to withstand all extreme forces.
The following steps are performed in production at Louise RC in order to obtain a perfect bond;
o The rings of the rubber tire to be glued are slightly grinded and degreased.
o The surface of the wheel where the tire will be glued is grinded up and degreased.
o The tire is bonded to the wheel with cyanoacrylate adhesive using a special dosing machine. As a result, the equal amount of glue is always applied.
o The bonded tire is pressed for a specific time in order to ensure perfect bonding and curing.
o Each tire passes a spinning and pulling test to ensure perfect bonding.
The Louise RC racing tyres are made of a special rubber compound where high demands are imposed on the grip that the tyre provides but also on its wear and tear. The racing tires are available in 2 different compounds, Soft and Super soft. The tires also build up more grip when the ideal temperature is reached. That's why we always recommend driving a few laps first to bring the tires up to temperature.
