No ETA yet. If I had to guess, February or March.

Thank you. Ive been retrofitting the B5M finnisher body in my B6 and really love the finnisher style. I was wondering if you guys will do one for the TLR 22-4 2.0 too?

I don't think so.

Good stuff. Looking forward to hearing more on this tire. Something with a little "tread" like this I would be very curious to try out.

I used green flip outs as that would be a legal pin here since its not hard and went well, but was used to setup with slicks. Here the traction is pretty high ehough we role with slicks but I am always open to giving new things a try

are the reflex 4wd front tires larger in diameter than the flipout 4wd fronts in wheeler class. seems like I can get more steering with a larger diameter front than rear. I,m trying to run 3d's in the rear and the flipout are smaller

I haven't measured them, but I'm guessing they are bigger than Flipouts. Also keep in mind that Reflex's are 60mm/2.4 tires/wheels.

i'm getting about 86mm for the 3d's rears with avid rims and red aka foams, the flipouts 4wd fronts are 84.5mm with yokomo rims and red foams. are there any 4wd fronts that are 86mm or larger? the reflex comes in 60mm rims and foams but I figured the sidewall was thinner than 2.2 tires

With Maifield's rumored move to Yokomo it'd be ace to see a YZ-4 body from you guys.

Amain said the space bars would be available yesterday but they still say back ordered. I need a new set of tires and wanted to try these. Do you guys have an idea when jconcepts or amain will have these in stock?

I really love using Carvers SCT tires on the front of my 2wd Short Course truck. My current pair are finally wearing out after years of use. I can't seem to find a new pair of Green compound replacements anywhere. However, I do have an old pair in good condition mounted on rims from my older truck. Does anyone know if I can use CA debonder to remove the tires from the rims safely for reuse? What would I have to use to clean off the tire bead in order for them to readhere to a fresh set of rims? There's several of us in the Northeast who still run Carvers so it would be nice if JConcepts would reissue this tire again. Or create a modernized replacement.

Just be patient. Amain probably got them in but it is New Years and probably have holiday hours so check back tomorrow or Tuesday.

We are probably down to the last few with blue inserts, so they haven't made the switch to the grey yet (this is on blue dirt webs). I'm one of the few guys that like the blue insert . Mount them up on wheels (don't glue) and see how they feel, if they are full and don't have any gap, then they should be really good. If they have a gap and don't feel right, email us and we will get you replacements.

It's a supply and demand thing; demand is extremely low, so unfortunately supply has been put on the back burner.

If you want to remove the tire from the wheel, put some acetone in a bucket (maybe 3/4 of an inch) and then something (small wire rack) to suspend the tires just above the acetone. Put a lid on the bucket over night and the fumes should debond the glue. Don't let the tire sit in the acetone or it will swell up.
