Yes and no. Our local one specialises in electric and nitro onroad specifically. So he can buy the fuel, bottle and other odds and ends they may share but 1/8th buggy tyres are not available cheaply.
AFAIK, in NZ there is very little in the way of 8th scale buggy tyres as the class is still quite small.
