    Wrap the tires in electrical tape. Works good if you wrap it well and thick.

    Uses about three rolls for a set of four tires. Get the cheap stuff for $.35 roll.

    It can easily be removed if you decide you hate it.

    Thanks Scooter.
    I guess I just want to know the OD of the standard plastic rim as that's what I have in mind to use for drifting. Hopefully it will be a standard even imperial size such as 4" or 4.5".
