If you like more than one color, please vote on the poll for your first choice of color and post a replay to this thread with your other preferred color(s).

Best regards,

I voted -"Black" above....as REAL 1:1 tires are Black, and I like them to look real'ish. BUT, I also run alot of Dirttrack oval racing, and my 2nd choice of color would be Brown(or Tan'ish?), somewhat like they used on the X-traction "Muddy" Dukes of Hazard cars.

Once upon a time ... i liked the traditional black but then my eyes stated to fail slowly on me . So now days give me orange or yellow or white . Something so i can see my car at the end of the track ! Today's long tracks and fast cars coupled with some aging racers is a recipe for colored tires LOL !

Black for the same reasons stated above but I have to say, we run my IROC cars, tweaked tuned and built by our very own aj350, and they all run white O-rings up front and matching white silly's out back. Now, they really look cool when running all 4 this way. Especially with the cool bubba racing 55 chevy pick up bodies. Really trick looking bunch. Sorry just my opinion.


BTW: Thanks aj350 aka AL for building these babies. They all run great and therte is no clear cut winner, all run the same.....FAST!!!!!!!! Awsome chassis tweaking pal. :thumbsup:

I voted Yellow but in 1/32 I can't find anything EXCEPT Black or Black with white lettering. Even Yellow Dog tires are Black :confused:

Later The looking to be different with my TOY cars Rockinator

I like red for some reason... they look good beneath most any car, you don't see a lot of them and I just obtained a small box full of red o-rings and sillies :rolleyes:

Some blacks with wide white walls would be cool, though...

Do they still make the Redlines? I don't remember who used to produce them, but they aped the GM Muscle Car style of all black with a thin, red line around them... I think they were some weird foam, though, not rubber or silicon...
