I had a dream, that lead to an idea, that will not change the world. But I told it to wife and she loved it. Now to make it happen.

I recall as a child having small rubber tires from model cars and what not.

I need to find a source of them to make a ring. It will have the tire for the ring, and then I am going to take a toy animal cut it in half and make a tire tread thru the middle(greenstuff)of it. Mounting it for the "Jem"

So any help on finding my tire… any ideas?

what size? I can lay my hands on one easily enough for you if we talking 'model' size – 1:50th approx to say near to 1:43rd. Of course, anywhere dealing in spairs for diecast models, slot racing cars, radio control cars will have rubber tyres of various shapes and sizes one would expect.

There are quite a few people offering them on eBay as replacements for Dinkey Toys etc., in various sizes.
