Revell Chevy van 2-peice tires.

Recommended Posts

I know this has been a sore point with people so I thought I'd give it a go.

I simply glued the pieces together with regular thin crazy glue and sanded the tread flush after it hardened.

Not perfect as you loose most of the tread but I think it looks fine for my van. 

The wheels are from the parts box ,,, IIRC, they're the custom ones in the current AMT '65 GTO kit. Perfect for a '70s street van.

Thanks. After reading that the new 2-piece tires are made from soft rubbery material (not the hard slipper plastic like in the old days) I suspected that they would be usable.  While not optimal (we are "spoiled" by 1-piece tires in most new kits), they do look quite usable (and the lettering looks good too).
