The Set:
djiti's production has released this set of resin replacement wheels for the two Meng Models 4 x4 Pick Up kits (#VS001, VS002) and consist of the four vehicle wheels, one spare and a small water can.

The quality of the resin casting is good with just some fine flash in the rim spoke holes and the large casting plug on each wheel. The wheels are a direct resin reproduction of the Meng Models kit wheels and this includes the side wall embossing “DUNLCP” (with a ‘C’ instead of the "O") and “Grandtrek ATZ “. One issue is the tread has a distinct concave profile which means the tyre tread doesn't sit flat at ground contact which can be a little off putting.

Fitting the wheels to the Meng Models Pick-Up kits is straightforward with the same rear rim locating lip that simply replaces the kit wheels, all very easy.

For those who don't like vinyl tyres in their kits, these are very straightforward resin replacement wheels set for the Meng Models Pick-Up kits with the same rim and tyre detail as the kit wheels without any modifications needed on kit or wheels. The only issue being the curved profile of the tread pattern that may be of consequence.

Rating 7.5/10

Thanks to my credit card and for the review Set.
