Default Yokomo Pro Tire Sander

Where can I buy one of these Yokomo Pro Tire Sanders? I saw it's out of stock at SpeedTech and may be in stock at Yokomo but for almost $70 more. I was wondering if there is anywhere else to get one of these tire sanders.

The picture you posted is for the Tire Sander Pro (YT-TSP). The price is wrong as listed at Yokomo USA, it is listed at 190Yen not dollars. This is the newest tire sander and is belt driven. Only advantage I can see is that is is supposed to be quieter than the YT-TSM. The TSM is $90.75 at Yokomo USA and is $79.99 at Speedtech. That is only about $11.00 more. If you can purchase anything else to get the total over $100 you get a 10% discount. Maybe some wheels or if you have a Yoke, some parts.

I have the TSM and see no reason to get the TSP other it makes less noise. The TSP is noisey, doesn't bother me, and when I bring it out, others are always wanting to borrow it anyway. You can call Yokomo USA and they will be able to tell you whether either one is in stock.

I did look there first and it is listed on the website but is shown out of stock.

I am looking to get the TSP and when I click to order it on Yokomo's website it lists the price at $190. I saw that it is in Yen but it doesn't convert when I add it to cart. I guess a phone call will be the only way to sort it out.

Thanks

does this sander or any sander extend the life of rubber tires and improve traction?

Gets rid of the bead in the middle of the tyre for a better contact patch instead of going around how ever many laps it takes to get rid of it.

That's about it. I guess you could take some old tires and just ruff them a little and it may improve traction. Have never tried it though.
