To my best knowledge : yes!

Alas I do not know if the pictured wheels are really made by fila or they are hyper stripe versions. but they did really fine in soaking conditions.

@jim white: awsome site ! great tip.

I still have a test in mind to glue strips of a cycle intube to worn wheels and try that. So you have hard (84A) PU wheel with just 1 mm of soft rubber around it.
