Slot Italia Wheels and Tires
 

Slot Italia produces a complete line of CNC-machined wheel hubs in a variety of sizes. A machined wheel is a true and round wheel that will track properly and reduces the amount of effort required by the motor to propel the car down the track.

 

Wheels hubs are available in bare machined aluminum along with black and gold anodizing. An ultra light-weight machined magnesium wheel hub is also available for the ultimate in performance.

 

Slot Italia machined aluminum wheel hubs come complete with a set of black resin wheel inserts and 0.9mm M2 hex set screws for securing them to a standard 3/32" (2.38mm) steel axle.

 

A variety of wheel insert styles and colors are also available to match the original plastic RTR wheels that they replace.

 

Slot Italia also provides matching tires in a variety of compounds and sizes to match the type of track you will be racing on. The table below describes the tire compounds currently available and their intended uses.

 
Compound Track Surface
P1 - Hard rubber For non-abrasive tracks surfaces such as, Carrera, Scalextric Sport, Scalextric Classic, and SCX.  Provides more consistent grip than Silicones on a dusty track.
P2 - Medium Rubber
P3 - Soft Rubber
P4 - High Resiliency Rubber For abrasive track surfaces such as Ninco.
S1 - Silicone For clear smooth tracks only.
Z0 - Zero Grip Use on front wheels to minimize drag.
