CareFree tires can be machined or cored out to achieve
any size, profile, or weight. You can even drill holes
all the way through if you wish.
Carefree tires do not delaminate and jam up in your robot
when cut apart like foam filled tires. They are also
far lighter than foam-filled tires. They are even non-marking
and oil resistant.
There are many hub solutions avaliable for these tires
as they are all made as replacements of commercially available
air filled tires. Azusa, Douglas and Skyway all
make very good rims. These are readily available from most Go
All tires are shipped directly from CareFree to you. If
the tires are in stock they ship in 1-2 days otherwise
they have to make them and they take up to 2 weeks (but
usually sooner). Note that these tires are all specially
designed for robot combat related applications, you can
not order them directly from Carefree. We are one of the
only authorized distributors of these robot tires.
For highest traction, we recommend removing the outter
slick layer of the tire. This can be done on a lathe or
by turning the tire on the robot and using a grinder or
sander. There are also foam tire traction compounds like Trinity
Death Grip that help.
Please note that the "OD" or Outside Diamter
specification in the charts above, is a maximum number
after being mounted on rims. As different rims cause the
tires to expand different amounts, this number may vary
by as much as .25".
Carefree Tires are Made in the U.S.A.
