New Aoshima Firestone Wide Oval Tires


Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has the new Aoshima Firestone Wide Oval tires.  I wasn't even aware they were out there till I saw them mentioned on a recent Luka Cee YouTube video.  They come with some nice Cragar S/S wheels or chrome 5-slots, which, unfortunately, are 4-luggers.  

In the video, the package appears to contain a piece of paper.  Anyone know if it's the backing paper for tire lettering decals?

If you have a set, I'd appreciate seeing an up-close pic or two of them.

I bought both sets at my LHS. The Slots are boxed as ENKEIDISH, and yes they are 4 lug. The Cragar SS are boxed as American SS. Both are 15". The decals appear to be licence plates. I can't make out the bottom part of the decal sheet. The larger piece of white paper behind the decal sheet is only a protective sheet. Here are some pictures.

For a moment I thought these were re-pop and re-branding of the MRC  Muscle Car Hop-Up Sets, but these are all new design. Nice!

The photo of the tires and of the instructions confirm that they are big and little set, but the tread pattern seems to be too modern for Wide Oval tires.

Is 1999 a safe site?  Anyone ever ordered from them?

To avoid confusion 1999 is Hobby Search, not Hobbylink Japan aka HLJ. I've ordered from Hobby Search twice, zero issues. They don't offer the shipping options that Hobbylink Japan offers.
