    p-51 diamond tread wheels-tires?

    Anyone besides glennis making a wheel with a diamond treaded tire? Looking for something in the 4.75 to 5 inch diameter for a p-51 and I'm only seeing glennis at $175 for a pair of wheels. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim

    Thanks, only Robart's diamond tread only goes up to 4 inch and their aluminum p-51 wheels in the larger sizes only have straight tread and they're not much less than the glennis. Doesn't someone make a pair of scale p-51 wheels for roughly $100? Jim

    You might try Unitracts out of England. http://www.unitracts.co.uk/ From what I've heard they might have what you're looking for. I'm curious to see a set of their diamond tread wheels as I'll be needing a pair in a 5" - 5.5" diameter myself.

    Iron Bay offers a 5 1\4" block tread wheel. It is a plastic wheel, not aluminum, but looks very good.[link]http://www.ironbaymodelcompany.com[/link]
    Don't know the exact price, but they should be around $30 each. Byrons last price on them was $24 ea.

    You might try Aerotech as theirs are $95 a set but I don't know if they are diamond treads or not
    Doesn't look like it but they are machined nice.
