DPRG: balloon wheels?

Hi all.

I noticed that several robots featured on the dprg web pages use some
sort of balloon (pneumatic instead of solid rubber) wheels.  These
look similar to what is used for RC airplanes.  Are they just big RC
airplane wheels, or something different?  I'm currently using lawnmower
wheels for my robot, and I'd like something a little more rounded and
shock-absorbing.  By the way, I need them to be about 5" in diameter.

Thanks in advance,
