I am getting ready to strip down a Diablo SV and just from looking at the undercarriage, its going to be a matter of unscrewing and them removing the wheels.

When you say 'pulling', are you trying to pull the wheels off while the chasis is still attached to the car?

thanks for reply Diecastx,
Yes the chassis is still together but off the car.I have to swap rally wheels onto this Suby,from another AUTOart.
On Solido,and Maisto they just pulled off with some force.
These however dont want to come off.
thanks,
Madhun

Sorry for the delayed response.

Thanks for the clarification on pulling the wheels off.

Maisto's have a flexible male/female end which allows them to be removed from the axles rather easily. I wish all wheels were made like this.

As for the AUTOart, try using a small flathead screwdriver and see if you can wiggle them free and see if you can remove them that way. I am not sure if this particular model has screw holding the wheel in place or not.
