Off Road Wheels

Image Letter Code Type Years Used Notes

ORCT's - 6155bf CTS Construction Tires Spoke(Type 2) 1985-present 8-Spoke chrome construction wheels

ORSB's - 6157bf ORSB / SBCT / ORDW Off Road Saw Blade / Saw Blade Construction Tire / Off Road Directional Wheel 1996-present

The SBCT reference was found on southtexasdiecast.com describing the tire on the 2001 Gulch Stepper (Final Run). A better example of the SBCT is on the 2000 Hot Wheels #111 Wheel Loader--a saw blade mounted on an official construction vehicle. However, by inspection, the ORSB and SBCT appear to be the same tire. The SBCT may just be the ORSB applied to construction vehicles.


Also called Directional Wheel (DW), Wave Wheel (WV), or Tri-Blade (TB). The DW & WV references are old but were well known 1st was Scooter1's Hot Wheels Wheel Chart and the 2nd Paul M. Provencher his Die Cast Pro Hot Wheels - The Definitive Wheel Chart http://whitemetal.com/ppro/wheelweb/main.htm The TB reference I remembered was hotwheelscollectors.com (Rugged Triblade)
