    What other size tires does Summit carry? I’m looking to replace the fire truck’s tires with NDT/NDCC or other period correct tires. The size I’ll need will be 7.50x20. Looking good on those rims!

    I can’t recall, where did you get the tires? Never mind, I found the entry...

    Hi

    Are you backing the holes up with anything while you weld them up?

    I like brass or copper, clamped tight to other side of the hole, while welding them in, saves on grinding time to finish.

    Looks like a fun project.

    Cheers Phil
