Figured i would post this info these toys are not at every single "Dollar General" store but that is where i get this "made in china" toyset for these fantastic offroad tires!
the wheel is a 6 tire vehicle so if you get 2 toysets its enough offroad tires to do 3 model offroad trucks/jeeps!

of course i hate to throw away a perfectly good toy! especially around the holidays with all the toys for tots dropboxes i went ahaead and "swapped" some virtually useless parts box hard plastic tires, and some rims from the parts box i won't use on my builds and replaced the stolen offroad tires kids do not discriminate tires on a toy! none that i know of anyway......
heres the pics!

Those are pretty neat looking. They'd be great on a Jeep or Bronco. :)

With a hundred and fifty two views , I'm sure ppl are going searching for the tires.

Thanks for the tip BTW.

Plus, this topic was covered, or at least mentioned, once before, so it may be old news to some. I suspect the difference in the front and rear wheel opening diameter of these tires is making a few people go ---> :huh:

I picked up a set of these from a tank thingy that was molded in blue, labelled 'POLICE' and had white rims. :)

That's why we never get any new 4x4 kits , not enough interest. Those tires look pretty decent though.

Great find. I also find diecast cars in 1/32 that have "DONK" wheels. I have purchased them just for the wheels and tires. The rest becomes painting test beds. The "DONK" wheels are just the perfect size for 1/25th scale cars. Here is a pic of the wheels I found and used them for this low rider car

Exactly Casey. I think it was a couple of years ago that I showed those tires in a thread. The difference in the openings actually work perfect for the AMT '84 GMC pickup and the Jeep Commando. The front opening fits the large wheelbacks like they were made for them. The rear openings are quite small and will require a little massaging to fit a 15" scale wheel.
