treaded tire was fitted to Australian Mk. VIII
Spitfires, and any other Spitfire with 4 slot wheels
that needed additional traction due to harsh
operating conditions. This style of tread was
referred to a Z-block, for the distinctive Z shaped
tread blocks that wrapped onto the side walls. The
tread pattern has been accurately depicted,
including the narrow ribs that connected the blocks.
A great looking pair of wheels that will set your
Spitfire model apart. Designed for the Tamiya and
Pacific Coast Models Spitfire VIII kits. Pattern by
Lee Coll and Roy Sutherland.
