Cracked open a Revell Miller AA/FC funny car kit today and was shocked to see the rear wheels are treaded. What gives?

With the way Revell recycles as much as possible from kit to kit, I'd say the were overstocked with rear tires for the Stacy David Rat Roaster and tossed them in. Those tires are treaded and bigger than a lot of slicks.

Somebody screwed up.

Guys after some inspection it seems the tires might have been switched by the kits previous owner. The car clearly has Goodyear sponsorship but the tires are Firestones. Most likely the tires were switched out at some point. Thanks for the input.
