The SC Wishbone is the first ever Short Coarse specific indoor or hard packed tire for Short Course racing. On its very first race it took a convincing win at the 2010 Cactus Classic in the Pro-2 event. The tire is made specific for the 2.2 – 3.0 inch wheels that are common on all Short Course trucks. The Wishbones center bars and smaller pins gives the tire a huge advantage on hard pack or indoor conditions giving the truck more forward and side bite. All of AKA SC tires feature a unique inner carcass ribbing that supports the outer sidewall to the wheel and also captures the foam. This gives the tire a consistent feel across the width of the tire. Other tire manufactures leave gaps in these areas therefore the tire is not supported all the way across the width of the tire. AKA tires work best on the flatter style wheels vs. the cone type wheels that leave the tire unsupported.
More specifically, Gil Losi Jr. and Mark Pavidis designed these tires with a 2.2”/3” bead design and an inner carcass made to fit the industry standard AKA closed cell foams perfectly! The result is a tire with a more controlled outer tire sidewall that creates consistent handling and tread wear. No longer will you need to add tons of camber to keep the tire patch flat on the ground. The Wishbone is best suited for high bite blue grooved clay tracks or indoor clay tracks. With a set of Wishbones in your box you won’t need to worry about having the right tire!
