Default Vintage Kyosho 1/8th tire help!

I have to repost this here. Originally this was posted in the electric onroad thread, but most of the posters there are 10th scale guys, and I know theres many more 8th scale guys here. So, please ignore that this is an electric RC.


Hey fellas! Ok, so just to start...I have no idea about onroad RCs. I've always been an offroad guy.

I'm working on a vintage Kyosho F1 8th scale that came out around 1992. My car is fairly complete with one exception...tires. I have absolutely no idea if current 8th foams will fit these wheels or if 10th scale foams will stretch to fit. I honestly don't even know how to properly measure the wheels but I did my best. I've taken it to several hobby stores, but since onroad isn't popular here, they dont know wither. Here are some pics. If you have any ideas, please let me know. I'd really love to get this thing running again!

Crabs are just pets you carry around on your groin....
