My club uses both types of wheels/tires shown in the pic.  I see plenty of the 810 width tires on the supplier's sites, but few of the narrower tires with the set screw exposed on the hub.  My club has only one style of the narrower tires and they are $20.  Where I can i shop the narrower tires?
 
Thanks
David

You can cut tires down to whatever width you wish. A tire truer makes this a simple task, but it can be done on a rotary tool as well, just less exact.

 

Also, tires like Koford and Mid-America tires for wing racing are already cut down in that manner. They still need to be trued, however.
