Quick Slicks High-Performance Tires

Introducing Quick Slicks

Quick Slicks are high-performance silicone tires for 1:32 slot cars.  Quick Slicks offer a combination of features that have not been available in silicone slot car tire until now.   Quick Slicks are an easy, affordable upgrade to improve your car’s performance.

Quick Slicks Features

  • Made in U.S.A.
  • Available to fit many popular 1:32 Euro-Style aluminum and magnesium “set screw” wheels from a wide variety of manufacturers including C.B. Design, NSR, Slot.it and Sloting+.   Initially Quick Slicks are available in 27 sizes with more planned for the near future.
  • Quick Slicks provide excellent grip on all racing surfaces – plastic or wood (painted).  The cleaner the racing surface, the better the grip.
  • Slip-on or Glue/true – the choice is yours.  If you’re a casual racer, gluing is not required - you can simply slip-on a pair of Quick Slicks and start racing.  If you are a more serious racer and prefer to “glue and true” your tires for maximum performance, Quick Slicks work very well with a tire adhesive such as IC2000.
  • If you do decide to go the glue/true route, Quick Slicks require less effort to do so than other silicone tires.  Same goes for (optionally) adjusting the profile where the sidewall and contact patch meet.
  • Rounded outer sidewalls on all Quick Slicks give them a realistic appearance like real tires.  The rounded outer sidewalls appear realistic regardless of a given tire’s outer diameter (o.d.) – no unrealistic, bulging sidewalls.
  • Quick Slicks designed for a specific wheel are the same width regardless of outer diameter – an important consideration when rules require tires to fit under the car body and you want to experiment with different tire diameters.
  • Quick Slicks were developed by actual 1:32 racers based on our own real-world racing experience and feedback from a large number of other 1:32 racers.
  • Quick Slicks are affordable.  In fact, they typically cost $1.00 - $2.00 per pair less than other 1:32 silicone tires (our 1:24 tires are up to $4.00 per pair less).  This is often an important consideration whether you race alone or participate in club/organized racing.

We offer a Quick Slicks Wheel Selector to assist you to identify which wheels fit a given Quick Slicks tire.  Still not sure which Quick Slicks you need for a particular application?  Give us a call (or drop us an email) and we’ll do our best to assist you.
