the stock wheels is hard to get off without damaging them or the brakes. not many has luck when it comes to remove the wheels from a AUTOart model..
i had a look at some Aventador wheels i have laying arround, and in the typical way for AUTOart models:

the disc brake is snapped on a metal rod, and the rim is glued to the disc brake.
but it looks like the calipers and wheelhub is one piece, so the calipers cant cant removed, which would have made it easier to pull off the wheel.
flat screwdrivers can be used to separate the brake from the hub, but it would require the caliper removed/loosened.

The fact the DMC kit comes with hubs, wheels, brake discs & calipers shows the wheel are not designed to ever come off.
The least they will brake down to is an axle so some have swapped complete wheel sets with each other.
I see that is even pricey now with wheel sets selling for around 40 Euro!

I have looked around the Autoart spares site on several occasions, and have not seen wheels offered as spare parts.
And any floor/chassis listed usually includes the wheels.
It would seem Autoart are determined to prevent wheel removal.

You had to be really quick. Even at that money they sold fast! But you could buy a front/rear set without the chassis plate.
