Truck mounted forklift tires

18 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I've been wanting to build one of these forklifts for my 40 foot Fruehauf flatbed.

I have a few builds going on but would like to start obtaining parts now.

Does anyone know who makes tires similar to these?

The tire specifications are:

Tire size

31" x 15.5" - 15"

Tire outside diameter front/back

31" / 31"

I would start in the toy isle of any K or W-MART or toy store in general. Carry a ruler Or at least note pad with a sketch & markings to check what you find.

Also try the "farm" toys in Central tractor or Agway stores.

Try looking at ATVs in the toy aisle at a Toys R Us or Wal Mart, probably have something pretty close in size and tread style. Check out dollar stores too, they often have cheap toys.

Try looking at the Hot Wheels Monster trucks. My son broke one of his and I took the wheels and tires and although I never measured them they look to be about the right size.

What about tires for a radio control car or truck?

They look a lot like Goodyear Terra(?) tires used on monster trucks, so maybe a 1/32 scale USA-1 kit from AMT could supply the tires for the forklift?

The Modelhaus, lists a set of Good-Year Terra tires. 34x15.5x15 I'm not sure what scale 1/25 or 1/24. Item # T-710 Steve Prideaux
