I'll be gettin' a few sets of those, even though they are a bit pricey.

Agreed.  MSRP is in the $17 range, although I'm sure they'll be discounted through the usual on-line sites.

My first thought was "OOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhhh lookatthat!!!" Then, I saw the price. For a few bucks more, I'm sure I can find a kit with similar rolling stock and some other stuff for the parts bin.

$13.99 is not bad. For the price of one kit, you can get two sets of wheels instead of one. I'm ok with that.

$13.99 is the Round 2 price.  They'll be higher at any LHS.  I'm getting a bunch, regardless.

This is EXACTLY correct.....  Hobby Lobby, Michaels ....even Hobby Town on occasion will have kits in the $17-$18 range.....much less with a coupon and for the same money you could get rolling stock AND an engine.....and I always seem to need suspension parts so......this is a nice set but the price is WAAAAAY off the mark......

Shop around.  I'm sure they'll be discounted through various sellers.

I agree completely. I can buy the 53 Chevy gasser for almost that at hobby lobby.

Ok, lets see. These wheels come in the re-issue Ohio George Willys kit. To get more of THESE wheels and tires, you would have to buy this kit again and raid it for them .  Last time I bought this kit, it was $25 bucks. So, I know have ANOTHER AMT Willys kit in the collection, and this one, is missing tires! That cost me $25 bucks! I already have multiple copies of this kit, both original and re-issues, why would I want another one? Oh yeah, the wheels and tires. 

 

Now,before we get into the "I can get this or that" discussion. I am only talking about these wheels and tires! And only because no one else is offering them. And no, this is not including resin products, since they are even more expensive and then the real crying would start! A comparable set from Speed City is almost $20! 

 

I am sure not all hobby shops or online vendors with be charging the full price, and if you act now, you can get the for the $13.99 from Round 2 website.

OK, I don't have have multipal copies of this kit, neither original or reissue, so I now have a kit full of usable chassis, interior, and engine parts I can use on other kits as well as the very nice set of wheels and tires I bought the kit for. Cost $25. :o

The funny thing is, every time Round 2 comes out with another tire set, there is the same whining about the price.  Over and over again.

Exactly...they must be selling pretty well...I hope they do a Wide Oval tire set and a redline tire set eventually.

The 2 smaller tires I have no use for . the wheels I have very little use for. But if they had done a similar 4 set pack of the just the slicks as in  other tire parts pack, I would be all over them at retail.

 

so I am less than enthused with how they're packaged.

 

That said , anyone that buys this set and doesn't want the blue streak slicks , pm me

Actually, the front rims in Round 2's PP005 parts pack are brand new, with a five bolt pattern.  The Ohio George front rims are a four bolt, and a holdover from the original tooling.  The rear rims in the parts pack are the newly tooled extras found in the Ohio George kit.

Another reason to get these sets!
