Default Who now makes tires for original 1980's BF?Im

I'm restoring an original model of the Blackfoot and need tires that will fit on the original rims that came in the kit.
Team CRP is now selling Tamiya 50374 tires, I wonder if they fit the old original BF from the 1980's?

Are there tires being sold now that will fit right on?

Thanks.

Anybody know if bruiser tires are the same size? They look the same and repros can be bought off ebay.

Regarding Tamiya 50374.

One large source on Ebay upped their prices  recently and they are newly out of stock at many hobby sites, although I found an online dealer that had them for under $7 each.

At the Toyota website: "Temporarily not in stock".
