I ordered a new set of sjt tires directly from the guy that makes them off his site in January. I still havenít received them and itís almost the end of March. I understand that snowbirds and the carpet nats just happened so there couldíve been some delay. Iíve emailed them and sent messages through fb messenger about it and absolutely nothing. Iím throughly pissed that this has happened. Does anyone have any other suggestions to either get what I paid for or get my money back? Tia

Wow you have a lot more patience than I do, I would have been raising hell after 2 weeks. Go to your credit card/paypal they will refund your money.

Did you pay via Paypal Goods and Services? Might be able to report it.

It's odd though, I received 2 sets in less than a week.

Iíve disputed the charge with PayPal. Iím not saying that heís a bad seller but be aware that there could be a long delay. Another person also experienced a long delay in getting their tires so itís not an isolated thing

Spotty supply from this vendor has been a well known and long-standing issue even before the rubber tires came out. This phenomenon was, is, and remains my primary objection to running GT12R. The rubber tired cars themselves are OK and fun enough to race with. But, for me, spotty tire availability is simply unacceptable. Itís bad enough that there is only one supplier for the rubber tires. But when the one source tends to be unresponsive, for me at least, that makes running GT12R a no go. For quite a while, we ran foam GT12 at my home track, and that produced great close fun racing. But now that some of the guys are intent on switching over to the rubber tires, Iíll switch back to traditional 17.5 GTP. At least for that foam tire class, there are multiple reliable sources for tires.

CRC25AR! We only race foams down here in Florida because we race out doors 99% of the time. Just one track is indoors -CRC carpet but it is once a month.But we still race foams there. If your having problems with rubber tires go back to foams.
By the way ya'll are welcome to come to our regional on April 8-10th. and the on Road Nationals in October- with Foam tires on the GT12's.

Why did we make a GT12R rubber tire thread? Do we need "go back to foam" talk in this one? Just sayin'
