I'm looking for Wide Rear Tires.
Posted by White_R34 on Friday, July 29, 2011 6:23 AM

I 'm in need of some resin or rubber wide rear tires for 1/12th scale. For both Choppers and Super Bikes.

I can scratch build them and take some time., but I would like to just buy them and save some time.

I used Model Martins 300 mm Metzler on this build.  High quality resin stuff!

Butch the tires look grate but I don't feel like going through a lot of trouble looking for a web page or calling some one. So I'm going to do what I have always done. I'm going to scratch build my own. That means the wide rear tire and wheel.

A butch your bike is awesome man!YesStick out tongue

I'll show some of my work here.

I see that there's a some othere guy making 330 rear tires. He calls the company "Minitunning". There seams to be no web site/page for this company like modelmartin. Now if I'm rong, any one that knows of these sites. please post them.

I found that the guy that makes the 330 tires of minitunning is from the UK. An he posts his work on Hiroboy's forum as well as this forum.

His last post was in 12-27-2007 an the Minitunning company is no longer around.

So as soon as I start pouring my rubber, I'll show some work. I plan on making my tire have that fat look, like the minitunnings tire but with my own tred pattern.
