Default Wanted: Tires for 3 1/4" Tamjet wheels

Guys,

I have a set of 3 1/4" Tamjet wheels on my FEJ F-15 and I desperately need a set of tires for them. Anyone have a set lying around that they can spare? Tam's not making any wheels or tires any more and has none left. I really don't want to have to go out and buy a new set of wheels and brakes just to get new tires... [:@] Help please! [sm=crying.gif]

Dumb question Bob, but did you check with Todd? I know he had some, just not sure of his stock on them now.

Also, you may have to call him to find out because I know they are not listed any longer, but he may have a set "tucked away".

George,

Thanks for the suggestion. I just talked to Todd and he has a couple of sets of Tam's wheels, but no replacement tires...

No, No, No! I just talked to Tam and he's alive and well. He just sent me a custom-made, excellent (as usual) replacement pipe for my FEJ F-15. He just doesn't do wheels and brakes any more. He said that 5 years ago, when he started doing wheels and brakes, the demand and profit margin was high enough to make it worth his while. Now, with all of the ARFs out there, there isn't enough of either for him to do separate wheels and brakes, so he got out of that business. He's still in everything else though!

Now, anybody out there have a set of tires for me?

Bob... Thinking about this... Have you tried Cermark? I believe they where partners on these wheels and may have spares!

I don't think they are the same. The 3 1/4" wheels look much bigger than what's on the F-16...

Last year at the Toledo show CJM booth had wheels that to me looked to be the same as Tams.
