AKA Wishbone Short Course Tires (2)
This is a pair of two AKA Racing Wishbone Short Course Tires. The Wishbone short course tire is suited to the high bite blue grooved clay tracks or indoor clay tracks. The tread design features low profile tread pattern to keep lug squirm to a minimum on high bite surfaces. All AKA SC tires feature the industry standard 2.2/3.0 bead sizes. Mark and Gil have developed an innovative inner carcass design that fits the industry standard AKA 1:8 buggy closed cell foams perfectly. This results in a much more controlled outer sidewall for more consistent handling and tread wear. No more cranking in tons of camber to keep the tire patch flat on the ground.
The latest addition to AKA's proprietary compounds is the indoor or "clay" compound. After 2 years of research and development, the compound has been finely tuned to create maximum traction and performance on clay tracks.
- Red Insert (Soft): The red insert is designed to soak up the big bumps with its fluted inner diameter while still holding its shape in the turns to increase corner speed and consistency.
- Tread Performance: Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers Gil Losi, Mark Pavidis and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.
- Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development Gil Losi brings to the table. In fact, Mark and Gil have been responsible for developing some of the most successful tires in off-road racing for a generation. Each compound is tested in labs then rigorously track tested to ensure the highest quality.
- Balance: Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it''s a priority in AKA tires. Mold components are manufactured to the highest tolerances to ensure the best possible alignment of all the mold components. This results in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.
- Mold Accuracy: AKA tire molds are made in the U.S.A. using the most advance mold-making techniques and processes available. The cost is higher to produce such a precision mold, but its part of an uncompromising desire to deliver the highest quality product available.
