Might be on your own since only AFV Club makes the deuce in the cargo and fueler versions. Revell of Germany has released the old Monogram M34 deuce along with the old Jeep. That'll give you 6 or 7 tires/wheels (can't remember if there is a spare). Model Expo had the old kit fairly cheap.

I take it those wheels(revell germany) are farily accurate?

I haven't done the measurements, but they "look" like the real McCoy. The backside of the wheel rim will have to be tweaked though. Tires are vinyl, two-piece rim is that dark green plastic. I've been working the old kit recently, someone else did the kit in Israeli markings and it was posted on this site for us to see (he re worked the rear view mirrors if that rings a bell). Search for the link so you can see the kit for yourself.

I just compared my Monogram M-34 tires with the AFV Club M35A2 tires. Obviously, the AFV tires are much nicer, but the M-34 tires are the same size, the M-34 wheels are slightly smaller and not as detailed. There are only 6 tires in the kit as no spare is included. The AFV Club kit comes with 11 tires/wheels.
