Tires (also known as Wheels or written as Tyres in British English versions) are vehicle parts that appears in all the Mario Kart installments, but are only customizable in Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Tires alter the speed, acceleration, and weight stats. The tires have changed constantly throughout the two games, varying in size and features.
Mario Kart 7
The tire customization first appears in Mario Kart 7. Each tire affects the speed and weight of the vehicle.
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Tire customization returns in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The stats have not changed much from the previous game, but in anti-gravity the speed and handling are affected. In addition to the new tires, every customizable tire from Mario Kart 7 excluding Mushroom and Red Monster reappears in this game.
Mario Kart Tour
In Mario Kart Tour, tires are not customizable and have no effect on stats, unlike in previous entries. However, the tires of a kart are not a part of each kart's model, but instead their own models loaded for each specific kart. The name shown under each tire render in the following table is its internal file name, while the name shown on the left side is the tire's name as it was known in previous games or otherwise conjecturally derived from its internal name.
