Default 1/8 scale foam tires

Hello, where are y'all finding good/low cost foams and pre mount tires here in north America? I have been out of 1/8th scale on-road for about 20 years, i'm a bit out of touch, no one in my locale does real 1/8th scale anymore, only dirt classes. Please enlighten me, Thanks

Thanks Ndude, I ran accross them and all the tires I need were out of stock. Hoping they stock back up after the race I need some foam pretty bad.

Kamikaze's website isn't always up to date. Call him and he just might have what you need.

That being said, Robert at ashford almost always has what you need

Twister is prob the least expensive site to order tires. Shipping is fast also

Thanks! Looks like i'll be placing a big order with them soon. Any tire brands I should stay away from? I guess the japanese foam is the best all around from what I read.

Everyone uses jap foam. Go with what you can find on a reliable basis.
