No Foam Inserts Here–You Inflate These Tires With Your Mouth [VIDEO]

No Foam Inserts Here–You Inflate These Tires With Your Mouth [VIDEO]

We shared this post with old toy car RC car commercials on Facebook, and Steve Tuberman commented with “what about Fat Wheels?” What about Fat Wheels indeed! This 1981 Remco Jeep featured balloon-like tires you blew up with your mouth, hence the name “Fat Wheels.” We’re totally sure flat tires were never a problem. Anyone have one of these back in the day?

  1. I so wanted one when i was a kid, That was probably my first memory of anything remote controlled

    1. I have two of these . One is fully functional and the other needs new tires. They are a childhood memory that I just couldn’t get out of my mind. I had one as a child and I broke it, and never forgot how much I loved that toy. I searched high and low until I found two for sale on ebay. If anybody can tell me how I can buy some tires for these jeeps, that would be great.

  2. I had one when I was 16. It used to bounce really well on those inflatable tires! My tires had a bit of tread on them. Worked right up till I stripped the gears.
