Appearances Mario Kart 7

The Wood tires (known as the Wooden tires in PAL regions) are a set of unlockable tires in Mario Kart 7. Although they may seem inconvenient, the Wood tires actually offer a good boost of acceleration and handling, but their speed and weight are hindered. The Wood tires are the only set of wheels to offer a handling boost, but no off-road boost.
