Default Sherman tank, rotted rubber

I just got a used Tamiya sherman and all the rubber tires are rotted. Does anyone know where I can find replacements?

Thanks in advance.

Trying to draw me out again BIG MICKEY? I figured you would reply to this, even though you don't own a Sherman nor a Tamiya, just cheap stuff!

You are the biggest trouble maker on this forum!

Hey, it does the same to me too. That's why I reply to simpleton attacks like Mickey Mouse throws at me.

Other than that, I'm here to help with experienced advise.

No parts collected yet for any of the KT's, but right now I'm collecting some for my very early TI version. After building the Sturmtiger that was so much of a fun build, I just had to build the Tiger too!

Gentlemen, for heavens sake calm down and have a bit of respect for a fellow enthusiast who's first language is clealy not English. Frans from South Africa has got an opinion like all of us and deserves equal treatment. Let's face it we're all here for a bit of fun, a bit of modelling and a bit of chit chat. So on that basis, let's keep it friendly to all us.

Lecture over now.

All the best Gents.

1002frans - Thanks for the tip, unfortunately my rubber wheels have crumbled.

Panther F - Thanks for the link. That's a big help. As Tamiya USA won't ship to Canada, I was directed to a Canadian distributor [link]http://www.borgfeldt.ca[/link] . One quick call, ordered what I needed, problem solved.
