Im not sure...but you can try getting white ones and dying them. Use Rit dye, you can get it at most grocery or fabric stores.

Just use the Rit dye on white ball cups from rpm. It allows you to get the shade of red you want! Nitro is right.

All of us old school racers use to die our parts back in the day because everything was molded in white nylon. I dying my wheels black, cant do that now because most wheels are pvc.

Didn't the Matt Francis version come with red ballcups? If so then you should be able to buy them somewhere.
