Need tires for vintage Turbo Optima Mid SE

Looking for Kyosho Option House tires W-5021 or W-5032. They are the wide/low profile design. I'm already looking at Ebay, so far no luck.

Also, would anyone know what modern tires/rims I would be able to adapt to the drive nut on this buggy?

The rims from the Tamiya Top Force, Rising Storm, and Gravel hound will fit along with the rims from the Kyosho Lazer ZX-R. These rims are 2.2" and will allow you to mount up some of the modern day tires. The rims from the Academy SB will also fit, but they're a slightly different offset which I believe will narrow the vehicle a bit.

I'm in the same boat - looking for modern shoes for my old cars (Optima of some sort and Manta Ray). There's another thread titled 4wd Electric Tires and Wheels in this forum with some more followup replies.
