Pretty close.  The sidewall lettering on the original movie car had a different spacing and read "B.F.GOODRICH  RADIAL T/A" instead of "BFGoodrich Radial T/A."  Most of the replica cars have the modern versions of the tires, and that's the style that is on my tires.

How close would they be for the Ghostbuster's 2 Ecto-1A??

The Updated Cruiser in the second movie had BFG's.

I know MPC's version is smaller than the hollow Goodyear L60's in the original issue.

 

I am planning on getting a few re-issues soon.

I have the old, original issue of the AMT kit and those wheels fit perfectly in my BFG tires.  I can even show you a picture if you like :D

I have a digital model that I can scale to 1/16 and have printed.  Quality would be great at that size.  In fact, I would probably need to go into the model and add some additional detail because I made it with 1/24 scale in mind.  It's a 235/60-R15 size tire in 1/24 scale, but can be manipulated to give different scale sizes around that basic proportion.

I would buy a couple sets of big and littles in 1/16th in a hurry :)

I doubt you'd have too much trouble selling them.

If I had a 1/16 wheel to measure for fitting the tire, I could make it. Send me a wheel!

I would be interested in these in 1/12 scale as well, but for the `67 Corvette, `69 Camaro, and the `57 Chevy kits. I think they would look great on all of them. And I am sure others would be interested, given the 1/12 Camaro is being re-released this November!

Again, the problem is that I don't have any 1/12 wheels from these kits to measure.  Without accurate measurements of the wheels, making tires to fit them is somewhat troublesome. :blink:
