Couldn't you just assemble the tyres on the wheels, then chuck them up in some a dremel or lathe, or power tool, then spin them up, and put a bit of sandpaper to them? I've done that on for instance Revell Spad wheels, to make them thinner.
I wish it was that simple, but the rubber the kit tires is made out of does not sand well, I spent about an hour with a coarse sanding stick and still not smooth, Plus the grooves are cut so deep into the rubber that they may be too small if I can ever get the knobs on the tire sanded down level with the surface. And the kit only comes with 5 tires so even if I could get them all smooth I would be short one spare tire.
