Hi,

Are correct '60s-style rim sizes available for 1/24 TSRF cars? I mean rim diameter of about 16 mm. Some years ago I bought pair of rims with foam rubber tyres for my 1/24 TSRF. The diameter of these rims are about 19 mm. Low-profile tyres with big rim diameter don't look realistic in '60s sport cars . . .

Regards,
finscale

I will have some seriously-nice 1/24 scale '50s, '60s, and '70s style 15" rims available real soon. These will be available in 1/8", 3/32", and 3 mm axle sizes. Three different widths and two different styles.

Anything available yet?
How about matching inserts?
