<p>I am trying to find out the diameter of the black wheels on a #54 Cadillac Ambulance by Lesney, Part of the Matchbox 1-75 series. Can anyone measure them for me? Would be greatly appreciated.</p>

Thanks Gerrit, that is a great site. I will be bookmarking it as I looked earlier today and could find no information when doing a search. If fact, this site did not even come up when I was searching, weird. I guess I should have tried Vintage Diecast of similar to find this site.
I have my answer. 10 x 36 so I am assuming the 36 is the tread count as the 10 is mm in diameter.

Gerrit didn't use "quick reply" but if you take all the rubbish off his link (all that past htm) it works fine.

Malcolm is correct, remove this </p> and it works fine. Thanks again Gerrit, I got the info I wanted.
