Please refer to our TIRE-WHEEL CAR CHART to verify if this Louise RC tyre 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.
Louise RC has years of experience in producing high performance tires for RC cars. The RC hobby driver and the RC basher have totally different requirements for the tires than the RC competition car driver. From this experience the special sports rubber compound has been developed. The sport rubber compound comes in 2 densities, soft or medium-soft. For the lighter 1/10 cars the soft compound is mainly used and for the more powerful and usually heavier 1/8 models the medium-soft compound is applied.
The SPORT rubber compound guarantees a tire that;
o is particularly wear-resistant
o provides an outstanding road-handling and steering precision
o provides an excellent grip on the different types of surfaces
o is compatible with the high-power ratings of today's RC cars
