Can anybody give me info on the custom large diameter wheels in this kit ?

Are they ARE 5 spokes & any idea of a real scale diameter ? Looking to use them on a 57 150 sedan B)

Pics would be a help.

They are huge, closer to 21" and 22" in scale diameter. They are close to American Racing Torq Thrust wheels, but not quite the same. I'm not sure if they are the same as the wheels included with the Revell '59 Vette and '65 Chevy pickup kits or not but they are at least very similar.

*edit* I think they are the same wheels...can someone confirm or refute?

Thanks Casey, too big for what I want.

Looking for 18" 5 spokes, any ideas ?

Would anyone happen to have pictures of these wheels? They seem interesting. Actually, just today I almost purchased this same kit, but decided not to since I have a different reissue of it with flat racing rims.

If you want smaller wheels Steve, I would go with the Pegasus Hobbies Chrome T's. They're a scale 19". They're a lot better looking wheel than those that came in the Mustang and a few other kits IMO. I'll send you a photo of a model I just finished that has a set on it.

Why not Buy the AMT 69 Mustang with the 5 spokes instead they are about 18".
