Default Air/Nitrogen filled tires

Does anyone know of RC air or nitrogen filled tire/rim sets? If so, any contact info?

Just thinking how cool it would be if there was a rubber tire (good quality like sweep/impinema ect..) that was bead sealed like full scale. They'd have to have a belted/semi rigid sidewall as well as the center to prevent ballooning as well as bouncing. I know they have them for some of the 1/10 and 1/12 porche's (as well as larger scale airplanes) so it's not completely out of the question. There'd be no more glue!

it would indeed but sadly law of physics prevent em from being anything remotely close to efficient.

Long story short, on smaller scales aka lighter cars, it doesn t work. Pointless even on 1/4th cars performance wise, now scale wise on larger scales is another story
