Hi there, been looking for some wheels for quite a while but I can't seem to find many 1:18 ones! So, I thought I'd ask here to see if these 1:24 wheels would fit. https://www.ebay.co....-Set/2170723744
the model is a 1:18 Triple9 Civic EF9 SiR.

the model is a 1:18 Triple9 Civic EF9 SiR.
I have not seen these particular wheels, but I do have other Aoshima wheel sets.
They normally attach directly on to metal axles, so if that is how the wheels are on your model - the principal is the same.
Axle diameter is the most likely issue you will have.

By my calculation, 19 inches in 1/24th scale is 2cm.
A little bit too small I think.
Perhaps a wider diameter if you can find them.

1:24 would be too small. Plenty of 1:18 wheels out there. If the CE28N's are what you're after, they're available in 1:18 but 18" & 19" though which would be too big for a Civic EF.

Yeah, just thought I'd ask as I've seen some people saying 1/24 can sometimes fit a 1/18, most of the good wheels are only in 1/24, that's the problem! Thanks for the replies.

1/24 wheels would be about 14" in 1/18 scale. Have seen 1/24 scale wheels on an Otto 106 Rallye & they fitted perfectly.
