TYPICAL TIME TO PROCESS TIRE ORDERS IS 3-5 DAYS
The tires are cut without the use of wheels, if you need wheels you must add them as a separate item
Customize your tire order and have the tires cut, profiled and hand finished to aid in the overall performance of the tire. There are 2 types of profiles and thickness to choose from:
This profile has become very popular over the past few years due to chassis design evolving and the construction of the tire changing. This profiles removes rubber from the center of the tire to maximize contact patch to the desired thickness and then the edges are profiled to remove minimal rubber to preserve the integrity of the sidewall maximizing roll speed.
The same steps are taken for this profile as with the Hybrid but the edges are profiled much more aggressively to help aid the tire in making side bite for lower grip conditions and in some cases lower horsepower classes.
There are two choices to choose from when it comes to the thickness of the tire regardless of what profile is chosen:
Thicker tires are designed to produce more bite, last longer and act more aggressively to prep in terms of how the durometer is affected. Thicker tires are generally desired when the tracks are medium to low bite and dry slick. Typical thickness of a thick cut tire is .65-.80 thousandths
Thinner tires are desired in higher bite, high temperature conditions or when a tire is desired to be scuffed and cured over time to create a tougher surface when aggressive prep needs to be used with less durometer affect. Thinner tires are also used in restrictor plate classes to aid the kart in making roll speed. Typical thickness of a thin cut tire is .35 - 50 thousandths
