I found one complete set in a box (very good shape with everything in it!! I got it from craigslist for 25 bucks!!) now i set it up for my son. now the problem with the chassis (i need that kind of rear tires to make it work) any idea where i can get some? i did try all kinds of tires i have from my bench (all kinds of silicone , etc.. i need some kind of tall tires) Let me know if anyone have a idea or know where to get some..

Thanks
Wes

Try Tyco front wheels(HP7 I think) mounted on the rear axle with AFX tires. I remember doing this to the trains once. The silicone tires I used at the time were a little narrower than standard AFX tires.

If you can find the axles from the mattel "Cars" sets (Lightning McQueen & Doc Hudson) from a few years back, I've found they work.
