Finishing up on new wheels from Ultracast is this set with the later solid disc wheels for the FW-190. This would be more appropriate for mid/late war types. This set has treaded or ribbed tires. While there is no set application for this vs the smooth tires, I've not seen photos of the type mixed on the airframe. The set is superbly molded and on easy to remove pour stubs. One simply paints the wheel, removes it from the stub and installs it on the model being built after ensuring that the axle hole is drilled out to the proper size (though it looks about right in the image).
