From the same designer in 1/35th, $23.71 for the set of four:

Personally speaking I think the 1/24th scale track assemblies would look better on a 1/35th vehicle,
especially if doing a halftrack.

Ah, its for 4 - OK! Yes, plan would be to install the 24th scale on a 35th Lav-II 4x4

If they all look the same just count the number & shape of the wheel holes - that will tell you what size / model halftrack it is.
