The design of the wheel is nice, probably wouldn't change that. Just paint them silver with new decals.

I was favouring the BBS LM actually

I never liked the wheels on this originally but they grew on me as the build progressed, however a set of BBS LM's would look good.

Yeah I only kept them cause the previous owner destroyed half the chassis when taking the original wheels off and these are attached in a very peculiar way so swapping wheels on this would probably involve a rebuild of the entire chassis. Kinda dreading it tbh

Or it could've been another shipping damaged one that the previous owner half-arsed. I had to rebuild mine too, that was fun! Not.

Alright so I finally decided on wheels for this model, which are the Work Meister M1 in silver. Here's a pic

I was originally torn between this wheel and the BBS LM (bottom).

I think it's a good choice, I'm happy with them. Now I can move on to redoing the engine and interior. I would also like to do a correct R33-specific Mine's livery

Also in the works are a carbon wing blade, mirrors and possibly a black front lip - we'll see.
