Looking for the best resin to use in making a flexible tire that can be stretched from say a 14" to 18" scale size.  I know a lot of people make then out of regular hard resin but I need a resin that can stretch.  I like the Alumilite products for there standard resin but do they have a good stretchable resin?  Like the Flex 40 or Flex 30 even... for example.  Anyone with experience in this please chime in.

flex 30 is your best bet but thats a heavy stretch even when i did it it was pushing the tolerance bounds.
