Hi friends.

The one that comes with the kit is pretty close but not 100% for my taste  :)

Very nice model, btw. Unfortunately, I dont know who is the author.. congrats anyway.

It was an '82 GMC K-2500 3/4 ton 4x4, with eight lug wheels. The Bronco wheels are about right, but five lug. You would have to convert them to eight lug.

You will have a hard time finding a set of rims that will fit the big tires of the Fall Guy kit. The rims included in that kit are eight lugs. The rims in the Bronco kit are way too small to fit the big tires.

 

I have a Fall Guy truck in progress and I didn´t like how the rims sat in the tires. Looked like toy wheels. I modified the the lip on the rims to make them sit in the tire properly. That improved the whole thing a lot. Left wheel is modified, right wheel is not.

I recomment to just modify the rims from the Fall Guy kit. Makes a big difference. The pics don´t really do it justice.

Beautiful job so far!

 

You should start a build thread.
