Caliber tires can mix match with??? - 12.30.2009, 03:38 AM

I m using caliber buggy tires but I find it too much side traction my buggy with tend to overturn.

I m using aka ibeam n city block for my truggy. Seem to work but it's also the truggy is heavier n stable.

Any advise? I was told to clip off the side of the caliber tires. I was thinking of mix n match

I personally wouldn't modify the tire because it will affect handling. I would say to just slow down on corners to help reduce rollover. You could also lower the suspension a little, and/or decrease camber so the edge catches less. I wouldn't mix tires unless they are the exact same size otherwise the CD will have to absorb the difference in wheel/axle speeds.

Ok, but my truggy is using aka ibeam & city block it's great. But it's too costy to ship them to Singapore. Proline is avail in Singapore that's why I want to try mix & match if possible.

Maybe try a set of bow ties on the back then? Don't know if they work like good ole bow fighter combo, but maybe worth a shot?

turn them the other way around as calibers are directional.

+1 one way gives you more forward grip, the other gives more grip on the outside of the tire.


you want to Increase your front camber- less camber will give you a larger contact patch and make it worse.

Yeah that's what I was thinking turn the front tires the other way round. So less forward bite?
