Default Tire warmers?

This is for my offroad cars, but I'm pretty sure onroad guys are more in-tune with whats out there as far as doughnut warmers go. I'm looking for some velcro-on/adjustable tire warmers for tires 3-4.5 inches in diameter. Anybody know if something like that exists? If not, I'll resort to making my own and that might mean a new fire insurance policy as well.

Thanks for the link, but I'm hoping for something that is adjustable in diameter (velcros on?) for larger tire sizes. It looks like those are sized for touring cars.

I can't help with part numbers, but both Trinity and Tamiya both used to make tire warmer wraps that used velcro to secure them.

That is VERY old school, and likely as not no longer available anywhere.

You can make something just like that with nichrome wire, a power supply, some duct tape, and velcro. Alternately, there's a method using computer EIDE ribbon cable.

Google is a powerful tool. Some videos on YouTube as well.

5th Scale tire warmers are the way to go... heating elements in the nylon material Velcro adjust.
