      Good Afternoon. Does anyone have any suggestions for a source for some wider rear tires? I thought the AMT 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions T-bird kit came with some slicks, but the few I inquired about on E-bay only had the standard AMT 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions radials. I saw a set at Perry's Resin 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions , but I have heard stories of shipment taking up to 6 months. Any help is appreciated. Here's a progress shot so far. thanks....

    Since pretty much all of our work on the site is limited to 1/12 or bigger, a source for 1/16 may be difficult for most of us to find. The only source I can think of is the 1/16 dragster model driven by Beebe and Mullins (not sure about the Mullins part, could be Mulligan) That's the only source I know of for sure. Slicks and wider rear tires are much easier to find in the 1/12 or 1/8. That model looks like one of the new Minicraft kits.

    You might want to try a set of Goodyear hollow rubber slicks from a Revell 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions 1/16th Dragster or Funny car kit. You can always find those kits on ebay.

    Hey Double D, I'm in the process of finishing a master for resin 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions casting 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions pie crust drag slicks for 1/16 scale. I'm probably going to two width styles, one will fit the standard 1/16 drag wheels common in Revell 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions kits and the other will be skinnier for scratch built 1/16 Rear Tire Suggestions wheels for earlier 60's style dragsters and rods. I'll keep you posted on progress. Should be ready in about 4 weeks.

    Cheers, Dave

    Thanks for all of the help. At least I have a few options now. I just found out this morning there is a local contest with a fast approaching deadline. I'll keep you posted of the progress. My work won't come close to all of the amazing posts I have seen here, but I am having fun. Good day....

    Not a bad deal at 6 bucks. I'd also use the kit 427 side oiler motor. SWEEEEET!

    Thanks, it was for a what if contest so I thought it would be cool for the Batmobile to have a real dragster to pull to the track.
