    I had to replace a tire for my rid prime and it took awhile for me to locate one. Try ebay or post a thread in the wanted section here. Took me months to locate one but someone here finally came through for me.

    The tires are well known for cracking, some to the point of falling off of the figure.

    Instead of replacing them, I've heard that you can super glue the cracks and keep the tire from disintegrating. I've never tried it, so I can't confirm whether or not it works, but I'd be willing to give it a try.

    Ebay:
    super glue in fact work, but you need to use as little as possible

    Basically, drop a little in some plastic (like a clear window from any random package), then take a needle or something similar and put a just a bit enough to glue both sides
