I realize that laquor thinner won't take off a pre-mounted foam since they use CA now to hold it...I'm talking more of when I remount it using the old contact cement method. The few sets of tires now I've gone through since starting back up in 1/12th scale have all had problems seperating from the rim just like they did back in the contact cement days. The way I mounted mine had much less seperation issues then a factory glued tire. I guess with the larger diameter rim I could grind them down but with the normal diameter rim my tire truer will not reach all the way to the rim.

You could always throw them on your truer and use sandpaper or a file to take off the foam that it wont reach.

Although mounting tires at this point is probably not worth it IMO. I dont think you will have problems with them coming off the rim normally. I havent had a Parma touring tire come off the rim in hundreds of sets.

I guess...I just like to do it myself...I find all to often that factory trued tires once they get to me are no longer true. If they come with a lot of meat that's fine because I can still true them to the height I like...but if they are pre-trued to race heights I cannot.

Our tires still come big out of the box. I am not totally for the race trued tires just because there are people who like to start their tires bigger and don't want to start them rubber band sizes. Yea it is a pain to true a lot off to get them to smaller big race size but there are a lot more guys who run bigger tires for weekly racing than smaller tires for big races.

I've been using the GRP's recently and even though I have a truer, I love the fact that they come at 58mm, I know your boxes state that your tires are made by GRP do you have a different foam formula than theirs? They feel the same to me, but I am not good enough to really say that they are exactly the same. Locally anyone who runs 64mm usually gets convinced that the "need" to true their tires to get their car to handle right

i think the problem with having grp true them to 58 is in their grinding wheel. it has a very generous radius on it, and ends up narrowing the tire too much, even when cut down to 56. probably fine for asphalt, but on carpet, sidewall characteristics are paramount. unfortunately, unless they can get a custom grinding wheel from grp, they will likely come at 60.
