That makes sense. I hadn't thought of that.
I saw some 1/8 buggy tyres discounted in a model shop, but they were still pretty dear - about £10 GBP / $15 or so for two, I think. Probably cheap as such things go, but still quite a lot for a bit of moulded synthetic rubber. I'll have a closer look if they're still there next time I go.
