I just got this nice Penny Alfa Giulia TI, but it needs a front tyre! Does anybody have a spare?

There we go, I never-ever heard of Penny toys before. Looks like a very nice diecast car.

Andrew, it looks like maybe a small corgi tire might fit. Have you tried any? I can\'t quite make out the scale on the bottom there. What scale is it?

It is tiny - 1/66. Someone suggested an Impy tyre might fit - I think the Corgi ones will be too big.

I guess Lesney tires are the wrong material. They do make some small tires though

Thanks! Penny were Polistil/Politoys\' attempt to enter the small-scale diecast market. They weren\'t particularly successful, but they sure are cute!

Try tires off the Mercury Ambulance/Station wagon #55/73.  The Mercury Wagons I have here have domed metal hubs and separate tires. They may fit.

Measure the hub, I may have spare HO scale truck tires here that will fit it, I\'ve got a box full.

If you have a micrometer, get the inside and outside measurements and I\'ll check through my tire box and see if I can get you a set of four that match, until you can find a replacement. It will at least get you on the road, so to speak.

I can also look through my new and used tires and see that I have.
