Nikko R/C is the largest toy-grade radio control manufacturer in the world. The company's licenses include those from Dodge, Ford, Volkswagen, Chevrolet, Porsche, as well as proprietary designs. In 2014, Nikko was acquired by global toy company, Toy State. In 2017, Toy State created a new arm of the Nikko brand, Nikko Air. In 2019 Nikko Toys Ltd. became the new home of the Nikko RC brand.



In 1958, Nikko R/C was founded by Takeshi Hattori in Japan. Nikko launched their radio-controlled vehicle line in 1966 and started producing their full manufacturing line in 1973.

In 1977, Nikko expanded operations overseas, opening manufacturing plants in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America, and New Zealand. The Nikko R/C line contained an expansive number of vehicles that ranged from buggies, speed cars and off-road vehicles to boats, special action vehicles, and air flight.

An early Nikko design was the F10 series frame buggy, a two-wheel-drive dune buggy and sold both by Nikko and RadioShack. There were many versions of the Nikko F10.

I have a Nikko Mosquito 1/14 scale rc buggy from the mid 80's. Everything works as it should with the exception of the front tires rotting away. Can anyone tell me what size (brand) tires that I need to replace them. The wheel is 1.75 x .75. I can't find anything that sizes that way. TY
