Default Where can I get 26 mm molded 1/10 touring inserts from?

As the topic says, where can I get 26 mm molded 1/10 touring inserts from?

24 mm seem easy enough to locate using HPI but no one seems to make 26 mm anymore. Yokomo and HPI have stopped production of their 26 mm products.

I'd run pre-assembled slicks if I could but my track conditions are really dusty so I need to run treaded tires and the stock inserts the 26 mm tires come with are too soft.

Nope. They've all been discontinued according to Tamiya USA's site.

I've found some Muchmore Racing moded inserts on Tower's site but they don't give any info on the width and there's no info about the width either on Muchmore's website.

Try Stormershobby.com.... Search Tire inserts, all manufactues, under Orions product. Inserts 26mm sedan, for Schumacher, probably help you. It helped me. Cant find too many 26mm inserts. that why I went to 28mm frt & 30mm rear Foam tires. Think the ROAR in 2010 Rubber only on Sedans and touring. Have to see in January.

Thanks. I'll have a look at Stormer.

There seem to be a lot of 24mm inserts available. Will putting these in a 26 mm tire cause any problems?
