I receintly was able to acquire a long out of production resin cast wrecker kit made by the late Ron Cash from Ohio. The kit is a replica of a real wrecker known as Tug Boat Annie.It was custom built for a towing service co.in Mn in 1937 and took it's name from a then popular radio show of the same name. I would like to find wheels and tires for this build that at least look similar to those on the real truck. As I do not have the skills to post photos here I would suggest that one might Google the real truck to see what wheels and tires I am talking about.Thanks for any help you can give !

Miller Motors knew "cool", didn't they?  That is a nifty looking wrecker!

...and thanks to Andy for finding and posting pictures of that fine looking wrecker.

I have one of those as well and for that build and many others I would love to find a good source of good "spider" wheels for bigger trucks like this.

Don't the Mack kits have six spoke wheels also?

Check me if I'm wrong, but I seen to recall the AMT White Freightliner, Road Boss, and Autocar kits having wheels very similar to the 30's 6-spoke style, but with "webs" between the spokes?

Checked my A64B kit.  Yes they are 6 spoke with a web in between but a close match to the first photo.  Mack wheels are not that close.

Thanks for posting that photo,but I really hate to buy that kit for just the wheels and never plan on using any of the rest of the kit.
