This was an easy fix and looks great!

May 26, 2016
I just followed the easy instructions and it worked well. My last tire split when installing it but Speedway was quick to replace it. Wear heavy duty gloves to protect yourself from blistering and the installation does take some hand strength to fit it on wheel. End results look great!
Pros:
  • Looks Great
  • Easy Installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

HOW DO YOU MOUNT THE TIRE ON THE WHEEL

Answers

This type of tire is pretty easy to install. Obviously, you need to remove the old tire first. I recommend that you simply take a large side cutter (a pair of “dykes”) and snip the rubber in 2. Some installations will have a piece of wire embedded inside. The wire will also need to be cut to remove the old tire. Now, clean up/straighten/repaint the wheel as you see fit. Finally, heat the new tire to make it softer and more “stretchy”. I suggest that you preheat your kitchen oven to 250-275 degrees and place the tire(s) in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. When you take the tire out of the oven (you may want to wear gloves because it will be HOT!), quickly “stretch” the tire as if you were making a pizza pie and then set the tire into the groove on one side of the wheel. Grip the wheel & tire with the fingers of both hands and use your 2 thumbs to push and roll the other side of the tire over the wheel lip and into the wheel groove. With the tire on the wheel, check to make sure it is centered in the tire groove and the tire “lines” (tread pattern) are straight. When the tire cools it will shrink slightly and become firm again. When the tire reaches room temperature you are ready to roll! Please consider this information and let us know if you wish to place an order or if you have additional questions.

Thanks for your interest in our product line! If you go to our website (www.speedwaymotors.com) and input “Midwest industries” in the Search box at the top of the page you can click on the image that shows the Gold-colored car (which should be towards the bottom of the page). This will bring up the listing of components we offer for your car. This will include the tires, hubcaps, seat cover and graphics. As for paint color, we have never found any factory-original paint code formulas. We do not offer paint for pedal cars. Our suggestion is to have an automotive paint shop match a part of your car that was protected from the elements (usually on the underside, where 2 components might’ve been bolted together since new). Alternately, you can look through a “paint chip” book at an auto body supply store. You can choose whatever color you feel best approximates the color of your original car. As a hint, Fleet Colors tend to be non-metallic hues (most pedal cars were not painted with metallic colors) and are usually grouped in such a way that they will gradually go from blue-to-green-to-yellow…etc. and will make it easier to choose the color you like best. Please consider this information and let us know if you wish to place an order or if you need further assistance.

We have searched the world over for the correct paint codes for the vintage pedal cars with absolutely NO luck! There seems to be no surviving records for any of them. Your best course of action is to find some part of the car with a remnant of the original paint color (usually on the underside of the car, perhaps where 2 pieces were bolted together and thus protected from the sun and other elements) and have the color matched by a supplier of auto body materials. Short of that you might look in a paint chip book for Fleet Colors (which usually did not have the metallic hues common to full-size automobiles) and find a tone that you feel is suitable.

what measurement should be taken to determine what size tire to order... Do you measure the tire all the way around or do you measure it across? Thanks Eric

Hello, Thanks for your interest in our product line! Remember, wheels are metal and tires are rubber. To measure the diameter of a circle you need to start at one edge and measure going directly across the center of the circle to the opposite side of the circle. To determine the suitability of a pedal car tire we need to know 2 dimensions: the outside diameter of the METAL part of the wheel, and the width of the “slot” or “groove” where the tire fits into the wheel. So for example, a 6.5” tire (such as our 918-00815) will fit on a wheel that is 6.25” to 6.5” in diameter and which has a width of about 5/8”. A 7.5” tire (such as our 918-05215) will fit a wheel that is 7.25” to 7.5” diameter and a width of about 5/8”. I hope this answers your question. If you need further input, or your wheel has significantly different measurements, please feel free to contact us again. We will be happy to assist your pedal car parts search!

A 1960s-era Murray V-front would originally have had a tire like the 918-00815-FLAT. This tire will fit on a wheel that measures approximately 6.5” outside diameter (that is the METAL part of the wheel, not counting the original tire). Thank you for choosing Blue Diamond Classics!

I have a Murray flat face with 6 1/4 wheels. How do I know if the tires needed should be flat or round?

Answers

Hello, Thanks for your interest in our product line! Either style (flat or round) will fit and work just fine on your 6 ¼” wheels. Most toy makers used the round profile tires up to about 1955, and switched to the flat profile tires after that. The flat face cars began in 1958, so they would originally have had the flat profile tires. Many people use the round profile tires on models newer than 1955 as they feel those are somewhat easier to install. Only on certain, very collectible models do aficionados feel that to be improper (such as the Mustang pedal car). Please feel free to place your order or contact us again if you need further information. Thank you for choosing Blue Diamond Classics®! A Division of Speedway Motors Inc.
