Ordered them on 032013 - got them today. Really fast turnaround for free shipping (IMO). It even came with a free decal sheet.
Hope I installed it right...
Here is the foam insert + Tamiya rubber wheel: (front inserts are a bit narrower than the rears)
Adhered the sticky side of the foam insert within the raised edges of the inside bead lip:
Worked the tire over the rim / insert assembly towards the back of the wheel. Seated the bead into the rim by pushing the foam
flush and making sure the tire seats flush to the bead ring of the rim:
The fit looks better than my previous attempts @ gluing rubber tires to foam rims. The SWEEP tires + F104 rubber wheels
does not look like it is prone to sidewall tearing or chunking like my other setups.
