Slim are an unlockable set of wheels in Mario Kart 7, while being available from the start in Mario Kart 8.

In Mario Kart 8, they excel at speed and handling, but hinder in acceleration and traction. Its stats are identical with the Crimson Slim and Triforce Tires.


Mario Kart 7

The Slim wheels makes its first appearance in Mario Kart 7. They are noticeably thinner than other wheels. They have chrome caps and a red and silver axel.

Mario Kart 8 / Deluxe

They return in Mario Kart 8, having a different appearance from the previous installment. Major changes on the design of the wheels are made; they are now black with a red star-shaped disk, instead of black with a red and silver center, like in Mario Kart 7.

CPU players tend to only use these tires whenever they're using the Standard Bike. However, a CPU-controlled Luigi will also use these tires alongside the Mach 8. Likewise, a CPU-controlled Mario will use these tires whenever he's using the Comet.

A variant of the Slim, called the Crimson Slim, also appears in Mario Kart 8, where they share the same stats.
