Racing Tires

Towel City Tire specializes in delivering high quality, remanufactured Racing Tires to tracks across the United States and Canada. The reason drivers want to race on our tires is simple. We were in the business of Retreading tires when racing was born. Early stock car drivers relied upon us to carry them to victory on the weekends. Since those days, many aspects of racing have changed but the one thing that has remained constant is our determination to deliver the best tires we possibly can.

In many cases, our tire will outperform brand new 'sticker' tires. This is because our tires are made with our proprietary rubber compounds. Over the years we sat down with our rubber producers and came up with specific rubber compounds for virtually every racing scenario. With this advantage as well as combining the proper tread compound and built in camber, drivers on our tires are ahead of the competition.

For information on specific tires, please select either Dirt Racing or Asphalt Racing to see our available tires for each. There you can also see which tread patterns and rubber compounds are available. Below is a chart listing our various Rubber Compounds and some brief information about each.
