I've come across pegusus a few times but there's all seem to be the same size and I know I've seen a few finished cars on here with some wheels that I have not been able to find
So if anybody would be able to point me in the right direction I would realy appreciate it thanks in advance

Pegasus does have some wheel sets with staggered sizes. Some of us also use staggared wheel sets pirated from diecasts. Also, you can buy sleeves in staggered sizes and make up your own wheels with just about any center you want.

Ace I wasn't trying to be a smarta##
The other thing is I realy can't justify spending like $50 on a model between the kit then a diecast just to steal the wheels and leave it on blocks like in the city lol
so maybe ill just be stuck with the kit wheels I have around here

I should have explained more. You can often find diecast-takeoffs on ebay in the model parts listings. As far as making centers goes, the sleeves I mentioned are basically rims with no centers, and with careful mix-and-match, you can use existing wheels to make up a set of big-and-littles. You might have to put wheels in a 'lathe' (just a drill motor and a file) and turn them down to fit the sleeves, or perhaps space them up a tad with a strip of styrene glued to the rim. Infinite possibilities.

i wouldnt really worry bout doin some style you saw on somebodys elses build. do what you think looks good. you can always find a set of diff sized wheels if you look hard nuff. even if $$ is an issue. now go build a showcar!!

Derek, there is a guy herein Nebraska that has a neat site. He sells model parts by categories. The site is 'newtsboneyard.com. I am not trying to sell here. The site does make for great window shopping for different styles. Prices look reasonable as well.
