Default WTB 16" rally tires

Anybody know where I can get 16" dirt tires? I heard Kumho made some, but I can't find those anywhere. I don't want to spend more than about $400, if that's even possible.

Thanks

I just checked and the only Kumho dirt tires they have (R700) only go up to 15 inches.

Ah, didn't know that. Never shopped for them On the other hand, you can get 15" steelies that fit a WRX.

Eh, my bad. Apparently the slight upsize in brakes from the RS to the WRX knock the 15" steelies out of contention.

Yes, there is only one set of 15" wheels I know of that fit the WRX brakes: SSR Comp-H, I think, and those are like $400 apiece.

The only 16” dirt Rally tires I know of are the Michelins and they’re expensive:

there are certain 15" wheels that DO fit WRX brakes, and some of them aren't steelies.

PM vaus here, he has a set and can tell you who makes them.

"team dynamica pro race 1s" clear the brakes they weigh 13 lbs and are pretty strong. team dynamic also has a "rally" rim in a 15 that is bulletproof

all 16 inch rally tires are front deive tires. they work but not as well as the 15s. kumho has the 15 for like $90 a piece but i prefer the pirellis. the falken/ kumhos are DOT aproved and good on the street also. the michlines and pirellis are mot and come apart over 80 MPH

If you're looking at buying tires because you're worried that your mods will bump you into Open, and you want to have tires to be competitive in that class, hang on for a bit. We're re-evaluating the classes. There's a good chance that we may revert back to the CRS classes, at least for this year.

Well, it's been raining way too much up in Willows and we've basically got a mud bog in place of a rallycross course right now (pray for dry weather, ASAP!). When it's muddy the even the tractor sinks. Here are a couple shots of how much the field can flood (pics a few months old, but you get the idea, it's still way too wet right now):

You may want to look into these things instead of rally tires.

Since techically the drivetrain is free in Open, these should be legal. (Credit pcowan for the idea originally).

I'm looking for dirt tires because I want to have more control and more fun rally crossing. To me, it makes no sense to compare driving skill or car mods when you can't control the vehicle. Using street tires on dirt is fun for a minute, because you slide all over the place, but you don't really get a sense of how to actually drive competitively on dirt. That's what I'm looking for.

Our classifications don't impact national or divisional events. There's nothing finalized yet, but the way it will probably work is this: Those who trophy in their region will be invited to divisionals and/or nationals. These divisional/national events will be run under the unadulterated SCCA RallyCross classifications.

Just got some news regarding the rallycross field. There are currently not one, but two lakes maybe 1 foot deep in the field. We may be forced to reschedule the first event since given the forecast, the need to mow the field's 4' tall mustard grass, and grade the field before we can even build the track, doesn't look promising. Unless we limit everyone to a swamp boat class.

Stay tuned. We'll be figuring things out in the next week or so. I'd say the changes are VERY slim the field will be in a usable state.

lets use the once a year pass on the other side. the dirt we used for the school. That would be bad ***. That one we could get some real speed going or have a longer track in general

Maybe we could design the course around the lakes... and if you don't take the right lines, you SINK.
