    Yes, those are my Pacer wheels.  Item numbers FMR-038, 039, 040, and 041.  They come in pairs with locking hubs or caps and with 6 lugs or 5.

    Thanks, multiple Mikes   This 16" tire and wheel is a definite possibility.

    PK-Pro Masking Putty?  http://www.pk-pro.de/index.php?a=5068
    Basically it's just Silly Putty marketed to modelers and costing a whole lot more.  Silly Putty is great for airbrush masking.

    Mopar steel wheels seem to be available in various 1/25 scale kits, so I don't have any plans to do them in 1/25.  These sets are meant to give some options for folks building the Monogram line of 1/24 Mopars, such as the '69-1/2 Suberbee, the '70 Superbird, and the Challenger & Cuda kits.  They could be used on a 1/25 model with little trouble, but might appear somewhat oversized to a trained eye.

    They are 14" in 1/24 scale, so they'll fit just about any 1/25 scale 15" tire.. Finding whitewalls to fit these wheels should not be a problem.

    Thanks for the feedback, gentlemen.
    These rims probably won't fit the tires that come in the kit unless those tires are oversized for 1/25 scale.

    Last but not least, 1/25 scale 20" Hurst Stunner wheels with matching Goodyear Eagle F1 tires for the modern muscle crowd.

    These are available in two different sets:
    FMR-065 is a set of four 20x9 wheels and four 245/45-20 tires
    FMR-066 is a set of 20x9 wheels and 245/45-20 tires for the front, and 20x10 wheels and 295/35-20 tires for the rear.
    both sets include decals for the centercaps.
    Check out my website for full details on all these new sets, www.fireballmodels.info

    Also available now are some Mopar steelie wheels in 1/24 scale:



    The FMR-061 set is made for Mopar A12 cars, and I can also provide wider 15x9 rear wheels if you want to put drag radials on your Sixpack Superbee!
    The 15" redlines are available separately, too.

    Period-correct Bias Ply Tires for the new Moebius Fords
    Hi all,
    I have a new tire that some of you might be interested in: a 7.00-15LT bias ply light truck tire in 1/25 scale.  I made it specifically to use on the new Moebius Fords, which come with generic radial-looking tires.  

    These aren't on my website just yet, but they are available.  Send me a message or an email if interested.
    Thanks,
    Joseph

    Thanks Joshua; Please go to http://www.fireballmodels.info 
  13. Chief Joseph added a post in a topic New big ole' tire coming soon   

    Hi; this tire set is available now.  I forgot to come back here to update-- sorry for that.  The feedback from the guys who have gotten them has been good, so if you are interested in this big tire, head over to my website http://www.fireballmodels.info and see the ordering information.
    Thanks!

    They are sized for a "real" 15" x 12" rim at 1/25 scale, so just about any 1/25 scale 15" wheel will fit.  They are rubber and will stretch a little, so some 1/24 15" wheels should fit as well.
