Where can I get donuts for making drag tires (1.06" dia and up)? Wheels too for that matter.

Hey Tim, (JK products)

 

I have purchased lots of donuts from you guys and your website show no donuts larger than 0.920".

I used to make sets and re-rubber for all our club members.

Trouble is finding sheets of foam. I used to order a square foot of inch thick but my supplier closed and I havn't found a new source?

I have purchased large donuts from JK in the past. 

 

Tim; if you can find any of the natural rubber donuts in the miscellaneous junk you got from Jerry, these worked

out the best for me, and they are around an inch and one eighth. I only have a few left and I would like to use these

for my restoration projects.( each donut is wide enough for two of the old Dynamics wheels.) 

 

I am so glad that a person like you ended up with Jerry's business. It is a lot of work and aggrevation for very

little return.

When colored foam/Rubatex tires were used, THEY came in sheets, usually pre-punched.  Most tire makers today get their natural rubber/fish donuts precut by waterjet CNC and they are MUCH more round and consistent - not ragged sheet punched.

Wonder is too hard for drag.

I made a pair of donuts from knockoff crocs. They were fast as hell but tore up the edges in 10 laps or so and chunked after 15 laps.

I tried treating them with several solvents but nothing firmed them up.

It was WAY too much effort.
