Default New tires

I have been using a set of fly eagle wheels and tires on my 1/7 yellow f18. It's the only thing that survived the maiden flight of my fej 18 but that's another story.
I need new tires for these fej hubs. Same design as skymaster just a different size. Inside tire size is 48mm and outside diameter is about 94mm. I have a set of skymaster that are 96mm od but ID is a bit big at 52mm. I put them on and carefully centered them. May work short term but not they will live up to the task long term. Any help is appreciated.

Not sure, but I may have something that might work for you.

Thanks anyway David. I'm also considering new wheels and brakes. Maybe something a little more mainstream.

BVM's F4 wheels and brakes are easily adapted to the Yellow 1/7 F-18 ... they are not exact scale but look great on the plane. That's what I have on mine since I removed the Glennis ones (that were beautiful but waaay heavy). Let us know what else you find.

I have looked at bvm site, didn't see the f4 wheels. I have heard some had used them on the yellow 18.
