Having a hard time finding links to purchase custom 1:18 scale wheels here in the United States.  I have seen many of the links from German model companies, but many do not ship to the USA, and the ones that do are extremely expensive.  Anyone who has links or knows of any American custom model part companies, please post here for myself and anyone else who may be looking.  Thanks alot.

Nova, I've finally been dipping into the wheels and tires lately. Right now I have drag race wheels sets almost ready to sell. I'll be making 4 or 5 different rear drag tires for tubbed out cars along with 5 different front runners. I know you like to build drag cars so hopefully this is right up your ally. I've made them tp fit the wheels that I am making also. Pretty soon I will have my workshop set up and all my maching equipment in place so I can start making aluminum wheels. If you were looking for other types of wheels show me a picture and I may be able to make them.

Try www.collectablediecast.com under accessories for some custom wheels, mostly of the "bling" variety.

Were you refering to my comment? I make all kinds of parts for diecasts that you can't get anywhere else. That's the reason I started making my own parts because there wasn't any good realistic parts out there. The tires I make are real rubber tires. The only issue I am having with them is the back side of them aren't as clean as the front. It's good that you don't see the back of the tire so it's not really that big a deal.

Hi Corrupted.  Saw your posts, and your drag wheels and tires...I will certainly be getting with you for a few sets down the road.  Another set of wheels that have become very hard to come by as of late are the kenesis rims and tires...I've been looking all over the place, and they are either out of stock, or marked up to around $20 plus shipping when originally priced around 10 bucks.  Keep up the great parts, and I'll surely keep an eye out on your site for upcoming parts.  Take care.
