Hmm? The new wheels I have are the black ribbed ones. I think I compared these with some 2.2" pink wheels and the black ribbed ones were smaller. Anyway don't take my word, I got and compared those wheels more than a year ago and my mind can be playing tricks! I will check later and post picture if I see any difference.

By the way, SinCity, great find that car. Sorry to somehow hijack the thread but the info is helpful if you plan to restore that beauty!

I to have a set of white ribbed wheels that 2.2" tires fit very loosely on. Put a rubber band on them and the tires fit snug. :?

I must admit I assumed that all the ribbed wheels were 2.15" - they are certaintly smaller than other 2.2" Yokomo plain dished wheels that I have, Proline Stubbies (2.15") fit nicely - not stretched :?:

What's kit correct?

Really!!!!! What tires are kit correct? These tires and wheels were from Hyeong's NIB 94 YZ10. And I would have to say your looking at TR39 tires in the rear with a set of TF310's up front. :wink:

Just a wild guess though. :D

I have seen Yokomos between Works 91 - YZ10 94 with multiple different tires supplied with kit e.g. rears TR380 and TR310 with bars. I think, since Yokomos were true race cars and stock tires were replaced normally anyway, that they just put what ever tires they have at factory that were not so good selling tires to kits. Because of this, kits front are rear tires might be suitable to totally different kind of surfaces and tracks, like TF340 in front and TF310 with bars in rear.

The only thing I mentioned to Al about Hyeong's kit was I've noticed a different tire in the US kits, specifically the
