Is it possible to swap the wheels of a Welly Camaro SS with those of a Maisto Chevelle SS 454 convertible?  I mean, can I put the Maisto wheels on the Welly?  :feedback

Anything is possible, you may have to do some modding in order for the Welly model to accomodate the wheel change and still be able to roll. :cheers

I put the Maisto ZR1 5 spoke wheels on a Welly Camaro SS and they fit just fine, although it didn't roll. I think the inside of the Maisto wheels are slightly larger and will wobble a bit( its been a long time since I've done this)

I don't know as I have never tried it myself but when you find out, let us know. Sounds interesting.  :cheers

:iagree Sounds interesting :cheers


When I first tried to take Maisto wheels off, I knew I had to be careful with them, but I also had to put a little more pressure on them then I had first thought.
