Default Looking for older tires - 1.9"

Hi All,

I'm dusting off my old Kyosho Optima Mid Custom, and I need tires!

I've been told the older tire size, 1.9" is extremely hard to find, and my searched have proven so. And, since I've been out of eth hobby a long time, not too sure where to look or who to ask for replacement parts.

I've ask two local / well known hobby shops in Canada, and (typical) unless you know what you want, they're of little help.

Any one know of an old tire dealer? or can recommend a wheel / tire set-up that's very close to the original?

I would be taking a look at some of the Tamiya models for possible rubber offerings. Sometimes you gotta really dig to find tire specs. Better yet, get some 2.2 wheels. I had some (Lazer's wheels?) on my Optima with no problems. The choices for off-road buggy tires is diminishing. 2.2" Pro-Line Calibers, or Blockades, but are soft compound. Check out some of the Schumacher offerings in 2.2" buggy tires if you do decide to go with 2.2" tires.
