Like some belts, it has become so hard to get idler tires with the right measurements we are looking for. 

 

I checked studio electronics and IT-17 is the one I needed but is not available. 

 

I am looking for a idler tire with inner diameter 15 mm, outer diameter 20 mm and thickness 3 mm. 

 

Any help with finding this is greatly appreciated. I don't want to go with the "O" ring method because the surface needs to be flat for better grip (more surface area) and a fixed RPM motor pulley is in contact with it.

Google Terry's Rubber Rollers. He's the master of everything idler, custom or OEM.

Thanks Hajidub!

 

I know about him. But for my current need it is way expensive to buy from him. 

Normally we pay under $4.00.

Hi Bill, It was for AKAI GXC 735D cassette deck. In general we all need these types tires for boombox decks also. So far, http://www.smcelectr...com/vcridt.htm  is the best, but studio electronics pulled away most of the belts and tires on their site. I wanted a 15mm inside diameter, 20  mm outside diameter and 3 mm thick tire. I found so close what I wanted from SMC.
