Busted folding tires wanted

We are looking for folding tires to use for models of tracked equipment. Holes and small tears are OK since they dont hold air.

"What is a folding tire?

A folding tire is, in a way, a special version of the clincher tire (see tire construction, bead core). In this tire, the wire is replaced with a bundle of Kevlar fibers that allows it to fold easily and also makes the tire lighter by about 50 - 90 g."
