Default Touring car tires wide belted?

hi I've been looking for a set the wide 30mm belted tires or bigger for my touring car for years.

I came across Ipanema website and they don't sell to the public or even respond to messages.

I know the touring is 24mm dominate in racing its more for cosmetics and also be nice not to have a Tamiya classic 30mm balloon so badly after 40mph.

If anyone knows where I can buy pairs of these belted 30mm touring please contact on my fb rcmotorsports park.
cheers

You can belt your own 30mm tires. Just use cloth tape ont he inside that they won't balloon. We used to do it with cap tires back in the old days.

I thought using window mesh but theres nothing that will glue it down. If the mesh debonds in one spot the tire is ruined especially after its glued to the wheel.

What glue did you use for the cloth mesh. Where do you find the material?

The cloth tape has a sticky side just like normal tape. I think it was athletic trainer's tape.

Gaffers tape will work great. it's super tacky and strong.
