Which Hot Wheels Have Rubber Tires?

  • 79 views

The first release of hot wheels cars which contain rubber tires are the Real Riders series. In fact, the term “Real Rider” is a registered name by Mattel’s wheels which refer to their specific Hot Wheels series containing an inner design with realistic tread and rubber tires to complete its wheelset.  The Real Riders series began in 1983 and was introduced during Mattel’s 15th Anniversary.

This concept of incorporating real rubber tires was first developed by Larry Wood and Bob Rosas, the two legendary designers of Hot Wheels. These two legends developed the concept of Real Riders with an aim to create a better appeal among adult hot wheels collectors. They take into consideration the fact that adult collectors would appreciate Hot Wheels more if it possesses some realistic aspects.
