CRC unveils their new Pro Mount F1 Wheels! Many of currently available wheels for F1 are based on the Tamiya foam tire wheel. The foam tire wheel from Tamiya is a well designed and produced wheel. However, it was designed for foam tires, with no centering or mounting guide ribs for the rubber tire bead. When rubber tires started becoming popular, these foam wheels were used because they were readily available, despite not being designed for rubber tires. And while they worked OK, there was plenty of room for improvement. The new CRC Pro Mount Wheel is specifically designed for mounting rubber tires like CRC’s RT-1, the TCS F1 and Pit Shimizu F1 line of tires. With the molded in mounting ribs, the Pro Mount is superior to other F1 wheels. The rib guides the tire bead in the right place, not allowing the tire to be mounted too far on the wheel. The design makes mounting F1 rubber tires much easier.
