Figured i would post this  info  these toys are not at  every single  "Dollar General" store but that is where i  get  this  "made in  china"  toyset for these fantastic offroad tires!
  the  wheel is a  6 tire vehicle so if you  get  2 toysets  its  enough offroad tires to  do  3 model offroad trucks/jeeps!
 
of course i hate to throw away a  perfectly  good  toy! especially around the  holidays  with all the  toys  for  tots  dropboxes  i went ahaead  and  "swapped" some  virtually  useless parts box hard plastic  tires, and  some  rims  from the  parts box i won't use on my  builds and  replaced the  stolen offroad tires kids  do not  discriminate  tires on a  toy! none that  i know  of anyway......
 heres the  pics!

as you can see i pick these toys up every so often when i have the extra 8$ on hand
its a bargain i think you can't buy offroad tires and rims that nice on e-bay for less money they will work for almost anything!!

 

:wub: :D  hope this  post is  usefull  especially to  all those  4x4  guys  out there!!

Those are pretty neat looking.  They'd be great on a Jeep or Bronco.  :)

Plus, this topic was covered, or at least mentioned, once before, so it may be old news to some. I suspect the difference in the front and rear wheel opening diameter of these tires is making a few people go --->  :huh:

I picked up a set of these from a tank thingy that was molded in blue, labelled 'POLICE' and had white rims. :)

That's why we never get any new 4x4 kits , not enough interest. Those tires look pretty decent though.

Great find.  I also find diecast cars in 1/32 that have "DONK" wheels. I have purchased them just for the wheels and tires. The rest becomes painting test beds. The "DONK" wheels are just the perfect size for 1/25th scale cars. Here is a pic of the wheels I found and used them for this low rider car

Exactly Casey. I think it was a couple of years ago that I showed those tires in a thread. The difference in the openings actually work perfect for the AMT '84 GMC pickup and the Jeep Commando. The front opening fits the large wheelbacks like they were made for them. The rear openings are quite small and will require a little massaging to fit a 15" scale wheel.
