May 9, 2018
These new tyres are direct replacements for the original tyres fitted to the classic Airfix cars listed below, see above image. They are available in MAX Grip versions. Airfix cat. no. 5083 / 20. Airfix saloon cars and front of Airfix F1 cars.
The new hand made MAX Grip tyres are unique to Scalextric Car Restorations and give the absolute maximum in performance at all times. Cornering and acceleration will all be at their maximum with these tyres. They give the very best performance possible on all track surfaces at all times. Simply put we have not yet discovered a better tyre for grip and race performance.
The MAX Grip tyres are hand moulded from 29 Shore A hardness rubber which is a very high grip material.
The tyres are groove treaded and have a smooth tyre sidewall. The word “Dunlop” is written on the tyre sidewalls.
