Default US retailers of GRP tires

I am trying to get hold of a set of GRP Rally Rain XSoft compound tires for 1/8 buggy. Any body know of someone selling them here in the states. i know Great Planes is the distro for GRP but they only have the GRP Rally medium compound.

Any help is appericated. Also if someone knows of a company in England that has them I would be willing to pay the extra to get them.

Thanks
Hitman

I called them just now and they said you can place a special order if they do not carry that specific tire.... for a minimum order of 25.00 which you would probably order 2 pair so.... make sure to have manufacturers number for the part... I cant locate them anywhere? special order them!

Default Thanks Lowgeared

Lowgeared,
I found them on the the Italian GRP website I am going to try them with softener on them on the front of my buggy. On the main factory web site they have them in 5 different compounds.

Default Yes Amain has the C compound

All
Thanks for the info. But AMain doesnt have the compound I am looking for. I am searching for GRP Rally tires in the Rain XSoft compound. Part number is GM01E

The part number breaks out this way. GM01 is Rally tires. The E is for the compound. They have A-E compounds in the Rally tire. I found all of this here

http://www.grpgandini.com/uk/1-8-offroad.asp

Thanks again all.
I plan to call Tower today and see if they can special order me to pair.
