Looking for a high-traction upgrade to your SW or old GMPW-style tires? Check these gummy monsters out!

Description [Hide]

Although the rubber traction-bands on the OLD GMPW series wheels are good (and even better when double-layered), you need some "good grips" when you start playing mini-sumo in the advanced leagues.

Specifically molded to offer maximum traction, these 14 durometer Shore 'A' elastomer tires are the easiest way to upgrade your Sumovore to top-level competitiveness. As they are thicker than traction bands, they also increase the rolling diameter of the wheel from 67mm to 71mm.

Note: Tires sold individually (not as pairs)

Note: These best fit the old GMPW wheels, as the new GMPW wheels come with premolded rubber traction tires.
