Unfortunately Alan Raab/Ma's Resin is not selling tires right now.

It seems like all the model kits have 30" or smaller. The RC and toy stuff (like SoReal) is all 39" or larger.

I'm working on a Jeep CJ-5 with a Spring Over Axle lift that really needs some 33s or 35s.

If you can get super lucky and find a set of American Satco Super Swampers they are about 35s in 1/24 scale. You could get a set by getting one of the Aoshima 4x4 Toyotas and still have a decent kit to build.

I'll keep an eye out for that Aoshima Toyota. Thanks!

Dave, the Revell Jeep Wrangler TJ (ex-Tomb Raider) is due out next year sometime for reissue. If you can wait for that one, it has EXCELLENT M/T Baja Claws included (minus sidewall lettering :( ) measuring about 33" scale...

Oh yea, I'm all over that Jeep TJ when it comes out in the spring. I'll probably buy a couple of them. Can't have too many Jeeps. B)

If you have a Dollar General near you, check the toy section for an army set in a blue box. It has a 6x6 with an unexpectedly decent set of Super Swamper wannabees. They aren't as sweet as the Satcos or Alan's, but for $8 and off-the-shelf, kinda hard to pass up...especially when the Satcos go for $35+ on the bay. Buy two and get 3 sets! :)

PM me what you may have for trade for a Rubicon Jeep that I have, I would be willing to let it go.
