Sorry, can't help you. Most of the one's I've "worked" on are the older AutoArt's. Generally, however, from what I understand, there may be a Philip's Head (Cross Head) screw under the hubcap of each wheel. You may have to pry off the hubcap to expose it. Not being familiar with the models you cited, I do not know if that will work with them. One big caution: Do Not Try to Pry them Off with a big screwdriver! You will very likely break either the wheel or a fragile suspension component that way. Look at the wheel/suspension mounting from every direction possible. If you can take the body off the model without damaging it (major concern here is a steering column that is locked into the dashboard mount), you may be able to better determine the attachment method of the wheel.

Good Luck!

Thank's for the tips...
It's still hard to do, but I'll keep trying.
