Hi ALL!

I have a bunch of tires and wheels that are in boxes that I'de like to figure out who made them , what they are !

I was wondering if there was a website  or somebody that would know what things were ?

Thanks Ted

Could post some picture of a few types you have?   The only other option is to look online at the various online shopping sites.

Why don't you list them in some sort of order with a # adjacent to them, for the identifier to refer to ?

And keep a running tally board.
IE
1 - Monogram
2 -
3 - Cox
4 -
5 -
6 - Revell

Mila Miglia, Champion, Riggen...

I also see Corben, AMT RTR fronts and rears and Classic. I do not see any Cox, maybe I missed them.

You found it. Right here. :)

 

But you have to follow Mike's suggestion. Attach numbers to them so they can be identified.

Corbin Wheels and German model airplane tires that get cut down, popular in the day.

Great Job, Steve

 

1. Champion

2. AMT RTR free wheeling front

3. Champion.

4. Riggen

5/6/8 and 9 probably Champion

7. Riggen quick change outer rings

10. Classic

11/12 Joe Mig 100%

13. ?

14. AMT RTR rear with correct AMT not DM tire

15. Russkit

17/19 May be match to #15 Russkit if it's set screw type, hard to see

16 and 18 probably Revell

 

The rest, who knows.

 

That's my take anyway.
