Default Tamiya M05 Ra (Rally) question

Hi guys. I have already spent a lot of hours looking for a specific answer about the use of tire inserts in this model. All popular models of M03/M05 uses tire inserts in their assembly manual except this particular model. To those who owned this model, did you put inserts even though the manual did not suggest putting any? Is it this particular tire they use in this model that does not need any insert? Please enlighten a neubie. Thanks.

Rally block tires don't require them. Thats the set up for off-road. Hope this helps. Even the 1/10 rally kits don't have them either.

My son threw a set of those tires (no inserts) and some CVA shocks on an old TL-01. I was amazed at how well it performed in the dirt. Those tires are way better than I expected them to be. So was the old TL-01. I might have to pick up a rally car soon.
