At the scale I have been building cars I use a lot these 30.4 x 14 wheels and these 30.4 x 14 VR tires. Unbeknownst to me there are two different ones, solid and regular. I found this out after ordering a batch from BL. The regular ones don't stay attached to those wheels well. I can order the solid ones I need for the wheels I have, but which 30.4 x 14 wheels work with the regular tires?

These will work with those solid tires. :wink:

Or else you could always try out round bricks, some cylinders, some dishes or even a barrel.

I think he's asking about the non-solid ones, which are a completely different kettle of fish.

For the regular ones you need these.

You're correct.

It's also possible to stretch a small tire around a round brick/cylinder and than put the non-solid tire around it. :blush:

Thanks, that's what I figured.

A two-by-two round brick will also fit nice and snug in any space that the wheel you mentioned will fit in, and it works really well since it has a hole for a technic axle!
