Replacement tires 1:400

I have two 1: 400 models (an A320 and a MD80), where the tires have been lost at the front landing gear. Are somewhere replacement tires available? I have so far found nothing on the Internet. Thanks for help!

What brand are they? Some manufacturers will provide spare parts if you write them.

The easiest is to find O-ring gaskets of similar diameter and to then cut slices of the correct width. Then you make a hole using a pin and they should be fitting easily on the stems.

Will cost cost almost nothing and will solve your problem for years to come
