Hello

Has anyone used these? If so, what are the dimensions? Height of the wheel and tire is my concern! Are they for smaller import cars or full size American

A little arithmetic shows us that a properly scaled 19" wheel in 1/24 scale will measure about .79166" across the tire mounting area.

Now, because the OD of a wheel is usually somewhere around 1" larger than the nominal tire size (19" in this case), we assume the OD of this wheel, if it were full scale, would be 20".

So, if we measure the diameter of this known dimension on the wheel/tire that's facing our computer screen (it's 3.53" on mine), we can divide that number into 20 to arrive at the scale the wheel appears to be on the screen. On my screen, the wheel appears to be 1:5.56 scale.

Having THAT number in hand, we can measure the OD of the tire on the screen, and multiply it by 5.56 to give us the OD if it were full scale. That number is 22.518".

Divide that number by 24, for 1/24 scale, and we arrive at the actual diameter of the model tire as .93825".

This is consistent with other 19" 1/24 wheel-tire sets including rubber-band tires I have here.

This wheel-tire combo is appropriate for all 4 corners of an import, or fronts on a larger vehicle like a muscle car.

Bill Engwer!!!

Now thats what Im talking about!!! Math and I have NEVER got along!!! (2 + 2 is sometimes 4). I "wondered" if the wheel size would be only good on fronts of full size muscle car??!! If its consistent with other 19" 1/24 wheel sets you have, then,.....You sir, have saved me a mess of broken pencils figuring that out!! I am looking to build the Monogram 59 impala Skill 3 kit. Pegasus wheels "to me" are too big for the front and not big enough in the back "gotta fill that rear fender!!! Guess I will keep on looking!! Thank you for that info!!!

I used these tires on different rims for my Cannonball build this year. They are a bit wide for 1/25 but not cartoonishly so, still, most cars will need at least mini tubs to fit them.
