Anyone know of a good caster offering these or similar tires in 1/25-1/24? I am looking for a set or two for my '55 panel truck.

Let me know if you find anything. I need a set also. There is not much out there for off-road custom builds.

Al @ Ma's resin makes quite a few different off-road tires, but none exactly like those pictured.

 

Check 'em out:

Sam - what size of military type tire are you looking for? I have a set from Italeri's Toyota Landcruiser that I won't be using. They are close to stock size (1/24), I would guess.

You might also want to check with Casey, he was looking into casting some tires like that.

Thanks Jeff!

 

I don't have anything like the first tire but is the second one the same as the Power wagon or Jeep tire? I'm making the wheels & tires from the Italeri Mil jeep now & they are a slightly smaller version of the PW tire.

You might see if your local hobbie shop has the reissue of the WW II Jeep from MPC. I think that it's from Round 2. The tires look very much like the pictures of the four 1:1 tires in your post.

Unless something has changed in that kit, the tires in it are actually Goodyear Suburbanite snow tires. Not a bad rendition of them, just not correct military tires.
