I have the wheels and tires from the Revell 379 Peterbilt kit. I was gonna put them on my dually but I don't have low profile tires lol. If you want them just let me know and we can talk about it

I used monogram 1/32 kenworth wheels on my 1/25 speccast f350 that i converted to a F550 dually. Not the best picture of the wheels or the truck though.

It started out lookin like this i broke the original wheels when i took them off though for the conversion and the f250 in the back 

is done up in a shelby theme
