Randy as in 1-1tires, yes ! Probably the best source on a Bias Ply is Coker tires . In the 1-25th scale model versions , I recall M P C doing snow tires back I guess about 1967-8.

There was/is a snow tire available in scale. MPC tooled up a Goodyear Suburbanite snow tire and it currently is available in resin form from The Modelhaus and you can also find it in the reissued WWII Jeep from Round2.

I even had a set of H78-15 Guardsman's from Sears once! :lol:

 

The only 1/25 snow tires I remember and have are for the old Jeep kits and they are really small.

many late 60s to very early 70s original kits came with snow tires....the Daisy Duke Jeep has some that are very close and same size as the original ones from AMT and MPC kits.
