    You'd have to cannibalize them from another figure, which means you'd have to buy another figure.

    My optimus has a couple of tires broken, but they're still in place and roll without problem ,luckily.

    I have the same problem. My G1 KO Sunstreaker's tires are falling off the rims. We need somebody to make replacements of them.

    Honestly save yourself the hassle and glue them. I had that happen to mine several years ago, used some super glue and they haven't come apart since. Of course there's always that nagging feeling in the back of your brain that the toy isn't in perfect condition but I'd say saving some money and having it repaired is better than blowing the extra money just to get some tires :)

    I've tried CA glue once on tires and when the glue dried it was white in some spots, looked awful. But, that was before there was tire-glue for RC cars. Might try that some day. Sunstreaker really is the worst, but the others are just cracked and hardly noticeable.

    Yeah that's no good at all. I try to just use a small dot of glue, spread it out thin and make sure nothing oozes out. It's worked so far for me (knock on wood!)
