Looking for tire and wheel company
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 22, 2003 1:28 PM
Hi,
I had a catalog a couple of years back (that I can't find now) from a company that sold, among other things, very realistic Super Swamper tires for 1/25 scale. They had a good selection of tires and wheels. Does this jog anyone's memory? Anyone have a source for such things? Can anyone help me? Ok, that last question has been answered by the doctors many times!

I've run across those somewhere recently. I'm not sure about the scale though, could be 1/24. Give me a chance to go through my *favorites* and I'll get back to you. Probably tomorrow, almost out of time for today. Sorry.

I think American Satco is who you are looking for. Search the net, they have a site.

In case you haven't been there yet...

MarkIV is right, American Satco is the place. They do have Super Swampers, a couple of Bridgestone Duelers and Formula Desert Dogs. Here's there description and a pic of the Swampers. Sadly, they are out of stock. They look cool though. americansatco.com

"SKU 10009
ITEM 10009 TSL Super Swamper
Out of Stock
4 tires per set (These are still out of stock. Made in Japan and the manufacturer has not yet advised us when they will have more available). The TSL Super Swamper is a large size 14.5"x36" tire perfect for a jacked up SUV, pickup, or 4x4. Fits large diameter wheels such as the Revell-Monogram 4x4 kits and large size AMT/MPC, Revell 1/25 wheels, Lindberg 1/20 wheels or the many aftermarket machined, photoetch, or cast wheels OD 1.50" ID 0.71" Width 0.57" These tires are highly detailed, premium quality tires, molded in a rubber compound. They are intended to allow modelers to replace the plastic tires in most kits with a high quality, realistic, and precisely scaled tire. Also great for conversions and updating of kits.

Dave in Pa.

"Ya, English, but it is no tire...."

There are a few dealers who carry the Satco tire line so you might want to search some of the aftermarket delaers, you may find some in stock.

Try going here: http://www.modelcarkits.com/

And check out the message board. You don't have to sign up to post. I think I recall someone there mentioning having a set of these tires recently. They may be gone by now but it wouldn't hurt to ask. You might also ask if anyone is casting them in resin. It's a cool place and worth a visit.

I just found this post. I had no idea it was here until I started searching for the company that made these tires. If you haven't found any yet, how about helping me my idea and start writing letters to INTERCO. My email is DJeffries0902@aol.com maybe if we try hard enough we can get ourselves some. Thanks
