With a good drop that T/A would be outstanding.  No center caps?

I think the center caps are there. May be a glare on them so they don't show up good in picture.

How did you attach them on your trans am?

Blitz......I have a whole remake in mind for this T/A including dropping it in the dirt.  Brians correct, the center caps are there just a bad picture.

Brian this Welly had solid axel hubs that the stock rims snapped onto which were almost the same size as the holes in your rims........I just did a little sanding on the hubs and the rims slipped right on then I ran a small screw into the plastic hub to hold the rim on. Worked pretty well.

Cool. Thanks for sharing how they went on. There's so many different ways to mount these wheels.

looks great Corrupted........wish I had the skill to replace wheels.........nice job.

ravtoy,
I had never replaced any wheels either but I purchased a set of Brian's 10 spoke rims and installed them on a Welly Trans-Am, took me about an hour and was actually pretty easy once I got over the fear of messing things up, but I love the way the wheel swap turned out and I'm very glad I decided to give it a go!

I say give it a try if you have a car that you want to put a new set of wheels on! Just my :twocents:

Here's the new wheels on the Trans-Am:

Thanks again Brian and I'm still going to pick up at least one set of those 5-spokes!

Amazing... :drool5:

Just letting everyone know that I'm lowering the price for the 5 spoke aluminum wheels to $65 per set. So if anyone is interested just let me know. I've got to get rid of the ones I have so I can pay for the rest of them. I won't be making any money on them at that price, but I don't want to leave the machinist hanging any longer. Thanks.
