Hello folks. Long time looker, first time poster.
Wondering if anyone on here knows where I can find some O-scale Cat 797 sized tires for a mining diorama? Either from a supplier or someone that produces them via 3D printer, or elsewhere. If it's a 3D printer option, I have a die cast Michelin tractor trailer with a load of 6 of them,...where I can take one out from and send it off for scanning if needed. Not sure if it can be done without sending one out, or if there's a program for it. Either way, I'm looking for around 15-20 tires.
Thanks in advance for any help

While I recommend asking our host first, if that is not successful you may wish to check eBay. Using CATERPILLAR NZG CAT 797 TIRES for replacements/trailer load 1:50 leads to one source.

Hope this is helpful.

Ha....right under my nose. I usually check eBay and other suppliers, and have been asking around to the model suppliers for a couple years now. I thought CCM would be able to hook me up being that they're involved with getting models commissioned I do believe. But was told their manufacturers would be the ones to contact but then they'd more than likely want me to buy a bulk load. Figured it may be easier to get some done with a 3D printer. Not sure if anyone on here dabbles in that sort of tech or not, or knows of someone.
I'll see what I can get figured out with these eBay listings from this seller to start with. Thanks for the heads up hipo

Iconic Replicas from Australia do 40' open top containers with 6 Bridgestone mining tyres inside as a load for trailers and dioramas. Not sure if DHS stock them but they have there own website if can't find them on DHS.

Right on, thanks for the tip wheels77. Just looked them up. And shopping in Australia is a better currency conversion rate for me in Canada too.
