So I have some extra wheels from defective GT Spirit models that I picked up on eBay- the 437M wheels from the F80/F82 and the ZCP wheels from the E92. I've thought about putting the former wheels on my Paragon M4 and the latter wheels on my Kyosho M3. I still like my GT Spirit models, but I have to admit I like the opening diecast models better, and I think the GT Spirit wheels would look good on them. Has anyone attempted a similar wheel swap? I think wheel removal on the Kyosho is pretty simple, a bit more complicated on the Paragon, and then fitting the GTS wheels to each diecast may require some surgery and ingenuity. Should I give it a shot? Right now, all of the models in question are boxed up, so I'm just thinking about it for now. I figure I'll find a use for those extra wheels no matter what.

So I took a look at the GT Spirit wheels last night. It won't be an impossible task, but it won't be easy either. I'm not sure my modding skills are sufficient for the task, but since the GT Spirit tires are spares, I may still give this a shot. We will see!
