This tutorial applies specifically to the Hot Wheels Ferrari Enzo and to 1:24 Import Racer wheels. With a little creativity you should be able to put any other kind of rims on the Enzo but don't question me on this, I've only put on these rims.



Disassemble the model into its various pieces. Get ahold of the front steering rack and assembly and take it apart. Don't worry about getting the actual Import Racer rim into the assembly. It would be a very tight squeeze. What I did was keep it on the outer edge of the assembly (never actually slips inside) but trim the piece down, see the ragged edge of the black piece on top in the picture, so that the rim doesn't stick out from the car too far. Don't go nuts or you'll have to make up the distance with washers.



I do know that the brake disc above, which doesn't have any notch in it is the one you want to use for the front of the car. I believe you would normally find those brakes on the REAR of the car but they have a larger diameter interior so they were moved to the front. So if the rack assembly from the Enzo is trimmed down to the right size you should just be able to assemble the entire thing with a long screw like in the picture below. The white arrow points to the rack assembly (which must be trimmed down a little) and the blue line shows how far in the rim goes. As you can see it lines up right outside the rack assembly with the brakes.



The rear assembly is almost completely stock, just put the Rims on the stock axle (I think its stock) and use the brakes with a notch in them. The picture below shows all the parts found in the rear axle.



Sorry it's a little difficult to explain the front assembly, good luck!

to remove the rims from the enzo do you just pull them off?

another question... how do you get the the front wheel assembly since it is underneath some plastic???

the rear wheels can be pulled off.

The front are screwed in from behind on the spindle. You have to disassemble the car to get behind the spindle to release the wheel.
