1/24 Offroad / "Desert" Tyres (Tamiya Peugeot 405?)

01-16-2019, 11:36 PM
Hello folks,

I am currently searching for a set of offroad / "desert" tyres for a 1980s Dakar Rally car project in 1/24 that need to have certain tyre dimensions...

Ideally, I would like to use tyres from Tamiya's Peugeot 405 T16 Grand Raid, but I don't have these.

Therefore, tyre dimensions should be the following:
Inner Diameter: 1,8 to 1,9 cm (I guess that's 18 inches in 1/24?)
Outer Diameter: about 3 cm
Width: about 1,7-1,8 cm

Tyre Pattern should ideally look similar to this (Tamiya 405 as well):

But in the end, every gravel rally tyre would be OK for me, if the above mentioned dimensions fit.

Any thoughts on that? Thanks in Advance.

Not sure if it's worth considering: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TAMIYA-1-24-PEUGEOT-405T-16GR-Model-Kit-Tire-Screw-Set-24094/153332413377?epid=1501496781&hash=item23b352f3c1:g:MNgAAOSwF5hcGO7~:rk:18:pf:0
