There are plenty of sources for 12" wheels and tires, and also plenty of TMGP guys who would be willing to help you.
look at www.3kracing.com, look at minimobracing.com, look at K&J Solutions ......
just my two cents.
Spoken from someone who has plenty of 1st hand experience... I couldn't agree more

This little project will be exploratory to see if ANY of them will actually take to a road track. At the moment, with the current set-up I doubt they will be competitive and I'm only looking for some practice track time. I suspect only ONE out of the bunch will be competitive enough to want to race. If/When that happens we look into the 12' wheel conversion.


I'm sure Scott was also referring to the cheap tires your considering on using. If they don't have good rubber it wont inspire any confidence thus making the entire experience no fun. If you do anything to the bike I suggest 2 things, catch bottles and good tires whether its a parking lot or on the track

When it comes to track. Do it right or stay the home. Especially when it comes to tires

Cool story bro. either put 12in front rim on it and good tires. Or have fun up your kids experience because you are cheap

Take it slow: Take a slow bike that is already owned, and SLOWLY transfer it to something that will pass tech inspection. Watch a slow bike ridden decently and enjoy beating the "All In" crowd. Again, when/if I see any of my children out ride their equipment, then we will get serious about tire and suspension modification. But for now this will be about fun and exploration of their skills.

Although new to this mini-track sport, I may of been around the block a few times...

What do you expect... you ask for advise and then do what you want

Your internet searching skills must suck too.. because a quick search reveals that the front and rear wheel have the same spoke count. This means you can buy a rear hoop and have it laced to your front hub and boom 12's front and rear.

Idk what your budget is but it can be done for less than 250, that's including the cost of good brand new tires. If that's too much for you to spend on "trying" it out then you need to find yourself and your kids a new hobby!
