Try this link and you may find the manual with part numbers. If not I have not the foggiest. Possible to try Dave Belsten as he may have a manual somewhere.

Thanks for the link.

Seems that the original OT-66 are very hard to find so I was looking at the option house tires.

Wich ones are the correct ones?

The kit tyres are the OT-66.

Alternative Option House tyres that are period correct for the car are W5031 and W5032.
W5031 are square blocks, W5032 are wider spaced square cone spikes.

So front and rear are the same?

Thanks

Yes, the short wheelbase Mids used the same wide tyres front and rear. Kyosho only went to narrow fronts with the long wheelbase Mids.
