The set has four outer and four inner rear wheels with separate centre hubs and two front wheels cast in a light cream resin with just a small casting block and minor resin film in the wheel rim cut-outs to be cleaned up before use.
The details on the wheels are excellent with fine tread pattern and side wall details including fine embossing and well defined hub bolt head details. The casting blocks are quite small and only leave a small ‘scar’ when removed that can be positioned at the ground contact well out of sight. The separate hubs on the rear wheels line up the inner and outer wheels perfectly when fitted together but you will have to drill locating holes in the end of the resin hubs to match those on the kit parts for attaching to the axles but this is easily achieved.
The resin wheels replace the kit wheels without any modifications (except the rear hubs as mentioned above) and improve the look of the final kit considerably and overcome the major drawback of vinyl tyres and plastic rims is their tendency to ‘eat’ plastic due to chemical reactions.
