    Use Krazy Glue. Amazing stuff. I fixed RID Magnus' tires, as well as Armada Scavenger's treads after they cracked. If you apply it well enough, you can hardly see the seams they broke at.

    I think it is just the US versions. I had to fix my US RID Prime. 1 tire split. A little superglue and a few mins of holding it together....fixed.

    I have never heard of one being broken beyond a simple repair.

    Most of mine have split but I just super glued them back together, haven't had a problem since.

    Yeah my Japanese guys show no signs of age, must be a US thing. You can get a Fire Convoy for about as cheap as a US Prime (I've given up on selling mine for that reason), so you'd probably be best off just going after the Japanese versions.

    Well mine don't even have tires anymore. They're still there but they're pretty much just hooks hanging onto the rims right now and will fall off if I take them off the shelf.

    As for fixing it... only if you know a place that would sell replacement tires for toys that will fit. (and if you find a place like that could you send me some tires for my Prime and Magnus.)
