Rubber Tyres for 1 1/2", 2", 3" and 4" Scale

We are pleased to be able to supply the range of rubber tyres formerly supplied by Double B Designs, now that Terry Baxter has retired.

NOTE - we are currently awaiting pricing from the rubber manufacturer - will post here when available !!

We can get the rubber tyres made in a number of different sizes to suit traction engines from 1 1/2" scale to 4" scale.

We can supply the tyre material cut to any length you require, but reserve the right to supply it in short lengths suitable for your wheel sizes. This is to avoid having lots of little lengths left over, although it is always possible to join shorter lengths together with super glue.

To apply the rubber tyres to your engine we have compiled a comprehensive fitting guide. Click here
