I have plans to mod a 1/24 911 Turbo '88 in the style of an RWB Porsche. I'm currently looking around for tires in that style (wide, 18-20 inch with low profile) and was wondering if anyone might have some suggestions. Thanks!

The best idea to me is to use tires from Tamiya GT2 "Road" kit, they probably are the widest available.

I'd go for narrow wide rims sets from C1 models.....

....and you haven`t still seen the car :cool:

the inserts are from a Aoshima wheel set, the aluminum rings from the 19" Foose set

also I took some wheels from Chris. they are really nice, and the packaging is real cute too.

Nice wheels throughout, the C1 wheels need more cleaning, Mike ones have an aluminium ring (just polish a little bit, thats all) and the tire pattern is crisper

I had my shop make me some alum barrels to fit the C1 wheels. I got both the 993 and the 964. 964 barrels are deeper
