These are high traction rubber tires for the Tamiya F104, F104X1 and F104 Version II. They are designed to fit the standard F104 foam wheel; items 54400 (F104 Metal Plated Wheels) and 51378 (F104 Spare Wheels Set).
The front tires are a soft compound designed to give the F104 chassis excellent steering characteristics. These tires are ideal for both asphalt and carpet surfaces.
- Carefully insert the included foam insert to the inside of the tire. Make sure to position the insert so there are no uneven bumps.
- Make sure to use a hand drill to make one 2mm hole on each wheel. The hole is needed to release trapped air once the tire is glued and it provides the necessary air gap when using rubber tires.
- Slip the tire from the outside face onto the wheel. The outside side wall of the tire will lie over the flat outside face of the wheel.
- Position and line up the outside and inside side walls and apply CA (super glue) around the complete edge and let air dry.
