Probably more insert- perhaps a double stuffer or a full size 26mm molded insert (HPI or- if you can find them- the old Tamiya). The groove is caused by the tire distorting and running sliding over onto the edge of the sidewall bead---called a 'death groove'--- and it will actually cut the tire off at the sidewall eventually.

Problem with these new formulation Type A's is that they don't have as much "stick" as they used to...
