I have been wanting to change those horrid Ferrari 512M rims for the last year but do not have any idea how to pull them off.  Do you just yank em' off and risk suspension damage or is there a certain technique?  I need info on the Hotwheels and Burago Models. Gonna try F40 rims on the 512M

From most of the HWs I've taken apart, the fronts are usually screwed (from the back) onto the spindle. The rears are usually on an axle and you pull them off with brute strength. The Diablo GTR, Enzo & Pantera were all like that.

The 512M wheels are the same as older Bburagos... You can easily pull them off (with some violence  ;-) ) but I'm not sure if you wouldn't ruin those pins then. But it's worth a try  ;-)
Note that the pins are bigger then Bburago's wheel pins, so you can't just swap wheels...  :cry:
