2 piece Firestone 9.00 - 15 Slicks

Recommended Posts

Think these slicks are from MPC. Is there an aftermarket source for these ? or has anyone cast 'em in the past ? Could only find narrower ones on ebay, think they were 7.00-15, but not what I'm after

cheers

Two piece plastic?  Those are probably from the AMT Munster Koach kit.  AMT made them in (one-piece) vinyl in the larger size also, but those are hard to find because they didn't put them into very many kits.

Thanks Mark, think you've got it sunshine, they are 2 piece plastic, just found an older built Munsters Koach on ebay with the same slicks on it.

 

cheers

Scenes Unlimited had a one-piece version of those, but they are sold out...I bought a set or two, and they are a quality product.  Hopefully they'll offer them again.

Thanks Bill, gives me another way forward.

Just checked Scenes Unlimited and will drop them an email, thanks for that James.

That tire design was also available in a really soft rubber for the AMT "Turnpike" slot-cars.

Cool. FWIW The early first issue AMT '58 Impala kits had those tires in them also. I had one "in the day".
