Will it fit my locomotive? Attached is a photo and below is the text of the info that comes with the traction tires; I only wish this info was in the product listing so I knew in advance if I was buying the right product! CALUMET TRAINS SUPER TRACTION TIRES FOR TYCO CHATTANOOGA AND 0-8-0 TENDER DRIVES. THESE TIRES ARE MADE TO FIT INTO THE WIDE GROOVE 0N TYCO 0-8-0 TENDER DRIVEN STEAM LOCOMOTIVES. THESE TlRES MAY ALSO FIT SOME LATER MODEL TYCO DIESELS. NOTE: EARLiER TYCO MODELS HAVE A NARROW GROOVE WHICH USED A THIN ROUND RUBBER WASHER AS A TRACTION RING. THESE TIRES ARE NOT COMPATABLE WITH THAT TYPE OF SYSTEM. TO INSTALL, THE TIRE MUST BE STRETCHED EVENLY TO FIT OVER THE OUTER EDGE OF THE WHEEL. ONCE PAST THIS, IT WILL SHRINK INTO THE GROOVE AND FIT SNUG. THESE TIRES ARE MADE OF A MATERIAL THAT HAS A SUPERB GRIPPING CAPABILITY. YOU WILL NOTICE AN INCREASE IN PULLING POWER AFTER YOU INSTALL THEM. They are a great value because they worked for me, saving an otherwise useless locomotive. They were not easy to install, as I had to disassemble nearly the entire tender for clear access to the wheels. I cannot speak as to how long they will last, but with 20 in the pack, I have plenty of spares.

Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
