In the early 1980s, Arkin A-OK Products Co of Markham, Ontario marketed "Sport Car Super Wheels"" using Yat Ming castings. A sister company in Novi, Michigan also marketed them in America.

In the mid 1980s, A-OK marketed Universal diecast in blister cards as "Speed Wheels" in Canada. Their sister company marketed "Military Speed Wheels" at the same time.

At some point 'WT' numbered Tintoys were also issued.

Another related firm of Arkin Distributing Company of Windsor, Ontario also marketed blister carded "Sport Car" models.
