Just a heads up guys, I sent a check to Joseph on 9/27 for three sets of tires and today the mailman just dropped off a small box with 3 sets of these tires inside. What I received looks even better than the picture above, and quite honestly better than a lot of kit tires.

Not sure how he does it, but Joseph casts some excellent tires and his service is outstanding. I think I will be spending time at the workbench tonight getting some new tires mounted on some builds!

Do not hesitate to buy any of his tires, they are accurate, well detailed and like I said, his service is outstanding!

Thanks for filling another void in the truck tire world Joseph!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Joe!

3D modeling is a great way to spend an evening. I drew this drag radial last night and it will more than likely see production in the near future:

The truck tires are in production now, and will probably be joined by a "beefier" cousin before too long.

Wow! This will be a great adition to your really nice line of tires! I think that many of us the off road model builder will be very interested in those tires, in the 35"_37" rage!

Scratch the drag radials for now, something else has caught my eye!

I need to let Santa know that I have found something for him to bring me.

Nice job on these, can't wait to see them ready for order.

The 3D-printed piece should be here before the end of this week and I will put it into production as soon as I can. It should be available soon after the beginning of 2014. It is 1/24 scale, and will fit scale 15" wheels. I will probably make some truck-type wheels soon to complement these tires.

edit: Here's a render of the smaller tire with a 15x8 Pacer wheel I drew tonight:

Here is a picture of the 3D-printed master for the Krawler. The "real world" size is 35x13.5x15 and it is 1/24 scale. It will go into production soon.

For size comparison, here is a kit tire from the Monogram 1/24 Bronco (left), my BFG All-Terrain T/A in the middle, and the new Krawler on the left:
