Tiger Wheels was a company based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, founded by Antonio Fadhel in 1999. At that time, Puerto Rico was an interesting market for manufacturers of small-scale diecast model cars, since professionally organized diecast-car downhill races had become very popular on the island. In order to meet this demand, Tiger Wheels introduced a range of 1/64th scale diecast cars specifically designed for racing. Hence, the models are very heavy and feature fast-rolling wheels, but their appearance is still quite realistic. The range comprised classic American sports cars (Ford Maverick, Chevrolet Camaro, Shelby 350 GT), pick-ups, a VW van available in many different liveries (including a series dedicated to towns in Puerto Rico and another one dedicated to American states), and a series of Ford Crown Victorias as used by Puertorican police departments. In the beginning, the models were made in China by Anson, but the VW van seems to be a copy of a Johnny Lightning model. Since production numbers were low and the models were only made for a few years, they have become quite rare nowadays.
