Does anyone know if the specific type of tyres is/was used on another transformer?
Certainly not that I am aware of, they're one of the few releases from that time period that had rubber tires.
Unfortunate considering how easily the ones on the Motorvators - Gripper especially - break.
Any similar in size then?
Nothing comes to mind. Most of the earlier line toys with rubber tires had smaller wheels. And a lot of the later ones that have got rubber tires tend to either be smaller wheels, or narrower ones.
I can say with near absolute certainty that there's nothing close to Gripper out there.
I don't think you'll find suitable tyres from TFs, sadly - they're a lot bigger than any other rubber-tyred 'bots that I know of.
Gripper was the UK repaint of Victory's Blacker, right? Such unique knobby tires on him, and it's so awesome to have rubber on larger cars. I haven't had Road Caesar for long but he's one of my favorite combiners already!
I would think you may be able to find some R/C car out there with suitable replacements.
