Found these tires and wheels in my junk box. Judging by the gears on the axles they came from a motorized toy. My question is are there 1/1 tires like this that would be on a 4x4 ?? and if so what would be the purpose?? Could they be used on the street??

You could hear those tires humming a mile away if they were real. :) I've never seen any street legal tires with that aggressive of a tread. :o

I like the rims, are they 1/25 scale? Aluminum or plastic?

The tires kinda look like a sand paddle or pulling tire, just not very accurate.

Casey :lol: they hum just rolling on my desk
Jeff I dunno bout what scale they are supposed to be but they measure out to around a 15 in our scale. The bolt pattern on them looked dang near close to right for the ford I set them under just to see

Hmmm... those are certainly tires!

Seriously, I wish I'd stumble across stuff like that in my spares box! I can think of a number of uses for those!

Help this guy out! I want to know what those came from, as well!

Those are the same tires & wheels that are used on the older small new bright battery powered 4x4s 1/35 scale.
I have a few sets of them,use them on 1/25 RCs.
