    Vintage or current motors? Recommend JK Hawk 25 or Parma homeset motors. I am trying to use silicone tires instead of mixing the foam tires with the other cars. H&R, BRM, and others have tires and rims, but 1/8" is not common in many sizes. An 1/8" reamer helps to fix the availability. You may find the silicone coated foams as well.

    Pro Track makes very good silicones for 1/8 axles. These are PRO327S https://www.slotcarhotrod.com/produc...ytona-stockers For a motor, there is a pretty wide variety. Is your track wired for brakes?

    Pink endbell helps date your motors, but homeset ones have armature wire very similar(thin) to other homeset motors. Many of the womps were geared differently and it cannot hurt to change the gearing to suit the tires you choose to use. The Hawk-25 and other homeset motors should work fine with about 3/1 gearing (8-24; 9-27). The 35T might be intended for 1 inch tires.
