Default Aluminum Inserts for JP Hobbies Tires

Hi Guys.
I bought a set of 50mm JP Hobbies tires to replace the larger 60mm tires that came stock. The wheels and brakes are the same for a number of tire diameters with the only difference being the tire wall height. Anyway, the new tires did not come with that aluminum insert that are inside the 60 mm tires and the 50mm nose wheel. I would not imagine they would as the rubber is just a replacement wear item, but, I cant find this part or any mention of them anywhere on the net including on the JP Hobbies Website. Does anyone know where to buy these?
Thanks!
Dom

I figured it out. I pulled them out of the larger wheel, and they are just one size to fit the wheel and provide some lateral security for the tire when the wheel halves are bolted together. So they also fit inside the 50mm tire.
