Hello fellow DXers,

As the title says I'm in search for some cool Mercedes AMG style wheels for my 1/18 NOREV Mercedes CLS (the newer CLS) . My CLS is white but I don't like its current stock wheels (and the ride height as you know is not the best) and I wanna put some AMG style ones to make it look more sporty and AMGish. Also, do you know how I can remove its current wheels?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Just pull it ;-)

I searched for a long time for AMG style wheels, and i found it on a Class A Norev... they goes on a Kyosho without any modification.

Very cool wheels bro! Great job! Is it possible to buy only the wheels instead of buying the whole car? Also, will they fit my CLS ? By the way, I don't think that you can just pull even the front steerable wheels, right?

I have two Norev CLS models, and after some hesitation, I pulled the wheels from both cars without any trouble. I have the CLS in Diamond White and Thulite Red. I thought the red car looked better with the darker wheels and the white one looked better with the silver wheels. That said, I think both would look better with AMG-style rims, so that is a tempting project for later. In the meantime, I lowered both cars with small zipties and it made a huge difference. I'd be more excited if my red car wasn't damaged in the process. The metal foil on the chrome trim is rubbed off in a few places, the super glue I used to re-attach a mirror ran, and a taillight is missing some of its clear red paint. My white one is flawless. I plan to keep both for now with the hope of fixing the red car. At least I bought both of them for 50% off!

I wish Norev BMW wheels were this easy to remove. Per my experience, they are usually glued in place. I have a wheel swap in mind for my Frozen Bronze 6er Gran Coupe and not being able to complete it is driving me nuts!
