Hi all,

 

Wondering if anyone can identify these wheels. They appear to be aluminum with very nice wire wheel inserts (maybe multiple layers), secured by set screws and sized for current model Scalextric axles.

 

I acquired them on a recently purchased Scalextric Mercedes 300SLR, but turns out there were three rear wheels and only one of the narrow front wheels.

 

So, I'd like to identify them and a source for replacements, if possible.

 

I think they look great!

 

Any help would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Jim

They seem to be BRM CERCHI LEGA RAGGI DI 15" - 20x7 + 22x9 - BORRANI PZ NINCO MITOOS.

The BRM wheels are very nice wheels but are also (rears in particular) too wide for a scale 300SLR.  They are more appropriate for 60's sports/racing cars.  Two approaches - fit the front wheels all around or use the Mitoos wires from RS slot racing or Pendle (UK)

Thanks guys!

 

I ordered a set of four of the 20x7 (fronts) with matching tires.  Can't wait to try them on the car!
