Help with Ferrari 641/2

Help!  I've dug out an old Tamiya 641/2 to build whilst locked down.  The kit and the decals etc are all perfect but the tyres seem to have broken down, the rubber has gone all misshaped and hard.

Does anybody out there happen to know if there are tyres available as a grade up part or have a set they don't need? I've searched the web and can't find any anywhere.

removing perished tyres

can anyone offer advice as to removing old perished tyres. I have a 1/12 Lotus 49b whose tyres have perished and they look as though they are punctured. I have managed to source some new Firestone tyres. would appreciate any advice as to how I should remove the old perished tyres without breaking tbe wheel from the hub.
