Default New Hobby Shop Needs Help!

We have a new hobby shop and track trying to open up (our one and only)
and trying to find suppliers for aftermarket parts. Tires mainly.
Other than the standard great planes and horizon people.
Does anyone know where to find tire suppliers?
I don't work for the hobby shop just trying to support them. It would be a lot easier for me to just order online, but without them there will no be a place to race.
I'ved searched till my eyes are bleeding
I believe Corally USA is one,
Any help here would be greatly appreciated

Contact Adrian on the forum (Look on Schumacher Mi2Thread), I believe he works with Schumacher, who imports Takeoff Tires. Good Luck

Have you tried to actually contact the manufacturers such as Proline to ask who they distribute through?


Where in Texas?

It's opening in San Angelo, Texas.

Thanks for all the replies This will be a big help in so many different ways.
I've been lurking in the background here for quite a while after hearing
about a new store to opening up. This is the best site to be on. period!

Thanks again, return the favor if and when I can.

Dealer accounts with Horizon, Great Planes, HRP (Sorex premounts), RC America (Jaco foams), Lotz (everything MuchMore), and Schumacher (RP and Takeoff tires) will give you just about anything you could possibly want.
