What common 1/24-25 kit contains biggest offfoad tires ?
Posted by Gluecipher on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 8:14 AM

Hey, i would really appreciate all of you who could quickly tell me,what pickup truck kit contains the biggest offroad-ish tires,and maybe wheels to go with em.

Mount-n-goat has off-scale ones so lets forget em ,but lets say im looking for rubbers with 31-40" scale diameter,and atleast A/T style tread, or more coarse. I recall that Mpc Deserter has these same tires and wheels as mountngoat ?

I have a set from AMT Crew Chief but does some kit have bigger ? In example whats the diameter of tires coming from Revell Ford Pickup 85-4360 ? How do they compare to Crew Chief tires.

* I dont want monster truck type of tires either*  Big Smile

 

Any help is wellcomed. Im having a quick visit to model store tomorrow and i found it out only now so im in bit of a hurry.

The MPC Fall Guy pick-up has pretty big tires. This kit was later released as a generic 1984 GMC Pick-up.

Perhaps an even better set is found in the Revell Mad Mudder.

Why would you go and tell me about this "mad mudder"...i mean ive never seen one in reality but now after Googling its pics...aint that one nice kit. Though, its not commonly available in northern europe by far. But thanks, i now know moreYes

After calling to the shop im going tomorrow, i know they have the Mpc Deserter in stock, but that seems to be same as the 1984 Gmc you referred to ? And it has 1/20 wheels and tires. Or does it contain two sets of tires and even the smaller ones are relatively big and coarse ?

Theres also the Revell Ford Ranger,and it seems to have offroad pattern/treaded tires but ive not found any mention of their diameter or comparison pics to assist me on doing decisions.

Moebius 70/71(?) Ranger is there as well but it seems to have lame,narrow smooth tires so its useless to my in this case.

 

Thanks!

The Revell 78 GMC Big game country kit has fairly good sized tires.

Oh yes it does, i found out about that kit only few weeks ago, and no shop ive asked from, havent had it yet.... And no idea when they can get a hold of it. Sad.

 

But when it is physically in any shop, im getting one sent to me instantly. I know its "just another" take on the old 78 GMC to some, if i got it right, but i sure like its concept, as it has lots of parts already in it, making it easier (cheaper) to build it my way. Im weak when it comes to camo so the plain boxcover is a deal maker. It has very good tires out the box. Not monster caliber but still big, far bigger than on average 4x4 kits ive seen. Other kit for tires might be revell Jeep Rubicon but it has zero other usefull to me, beside the tires/wheels.

Revell's Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (kit #85-4053) might have what you're looking for.
