If I'm not mistaken, those are the Sledgehammer tires? It's been a really long time since I've seen a set of new ones, but I remember them being very similar to the tires on the Tamiya Monster Beetle. They were very soft compared to Blackfoot tires, which were harder than a pair of K-Mart sneakers. They are still fairly stiff compared to the tires of today. Think about this: I don't recall them having any foam inserts, so that should say a lot about how hard the rubber had to be to keep a tire of that profile from collapsing under the weight of a Sledgehammer. Also, most sets you find in any type of used condition are generally dry rotted to the point where they fall to pieces.
