I wanted to start this thread solely as a sort of listing on where we get our replacement wheels for our diecasts from. Someone had posted a few websites in other thread, so if you guys can kindly post those links here again, it should be very helpful.

Cheers.

Those look really nice. I make wheels and tires. Right now I only make for drag racing, but eventually I'll get into others.

More time and money.  Any link to where you ordered?  Saw someone mention Nowak before but haven't read up on it.

THAT would be awesome.  Something to customize my exotics and StreetFighter/Pro-Touring muscle cars would be great.  A lot of German sellers offer wheels but you usually have to "kitbash" for anything over here, other than GMP, for 17" and up.

You're not going to find anything like this in North America.

Usually, it has to come from the car that has them and I remove them.

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

Once I do finally pick up a Minichamps SL65, I want to swap the wheels on it.  I think it deserves something better.

Send the member a PM. He doesn't have the wheels on his website. http://www.diecastxc...st-customs-nrw/

He's got some photos of the products and pictures of wheels that customers put on their W140 Norevs. He is working on an adapter for the Norev W140 for me. Hopefully I'll get something within the month.

Hey Guys,

will post here some Pics from the Wheels im gonna make at this time.

First the AMG 3Pieces will be available with a nutring, to get different rim beds.

The MAE rim is still in the shell. This will last a little bit.

At last I have build for a coming project ( Vorsteiner E63 AMG) the Vorsteiner V308 rim.

Tyres are available for all rims in different strengths.

Greetings from Germany

Michael

(I believe, I would need a distributor in the states :-) )

Ya I would def. splurge for some deep concave wheels.  After having real AME Circlar spec R's on my 1:1 350Z I grew to hate lips and especially polished lips.  So much debris gets caught in there and ruins them.  Switched it up to some bronze TE37's and couldn't be happier.

DEJA VU'!!!

I was just trying to convince a friend of mine who is BIG into ADV-1 wheels that he needed to write in and suggest they start making diecast wheels.  He had saved a wallpaper of a black 458 Italia on ADV-1's which I coincindentally received today...a black HWE 458, NOT a set of ADV-1's.  lol


I would pay TOP DOLLAR for an ADV-1 replica wheel!!!!!!

nice choice of wheels and colour, volk also my favorite wheels, but since I'm more into european car I prefer the G2 (no, I have no 1:1 car hehe).

I have build last Year for Raidou (Rainer) a Set of Wheels for his last Wiesmann Project.

click here for pic

The Diameter without Tyre was 35-36mm. With Wiesmann Reartyre (on the Pics seen) the Diameter must be 40 ore 41mm.

Ive been on Work till 4 in the Morning and have an Idea for the ADV1. This will need a few Weeks. All the Prototypes are Handmade, no CNC or other Machine.

Greetz

Michael
