Well last weekend my son was racing my brother inlaws MGT 8.0 going balls out the front tire on the savage just exploded. It was a mess after that. I will get pics. The foam was torn at a seam and the tire is shreaded.

Your foam could have bunched up in several spots, its either that or a rip[:@]

I ripped a foam on of my stock SS wheels (HPI Warlocks with the Dirtbonz tires) and had severe wobbling too. I just ended up junking the tire and foam, and bought a new set of wheels and tires. But, if you want to fix it, you'll need a new foam, and you'll have to remove the tire off the rim. I would boil the tire in water to remove it from the rim.

Hah I explode my tires all the time whenever I feel like showing off doing 2 wheel driving. The foam goes flying off and it looks worse than it is.

^^^H'mm I've done TONS of high RPM two wheel driving (as in 2 wheels up sideways in circles) for up to 60 seconds and no rips so far. But then again, that was with my Imex's[8D]

Get some Ofna molded foams, bake your tires off the rims, and install the new foams/reglue the wheels.

350F for 10 minutes, then turn the oven off and let it cool with the wheel/tires in there is what I do. The glue comes undone, and badda-boom badda-bing, you're done. Let them cool completely before touching them though...HOT RUBBER HURTS!

never happened to mine stock dirt bones are fine and defentailly spent some time with a tire (or two but thats hard) at 8 in

or they could be unglued happened to me, and if you don't care about the rubber or foam cut as much as possible off the rim and soak in acetone for a day or so, then you'll be set, though crome don't like it
