sounds like you want to larger, more modern wheels

the best bet would be pegasus

they carry a good line of those

another good option would be to browse our resin section

a lot of our member cast thier own rims and that would be the place to find them

Hobby Design makes various large diameter Ferrari wheels in 1/24 scale. I'm sure you'd be able to find something for the California and Italia from their assortment.

  • Hobby Design, but their wheels can be a problem at times for clean up
  • Aoshima which sells some of their wheel sets separately
  • Fujimi which also sells some of their wheel sets separately
  • Tuner Model Manufactory which makes selected wheel and rim sets in various degrees of complexity (such as separate lug nuts and rim bolts)
  • FG Models which has some very nice modern wheel sets
  • Scale Productions which includes wheels as part of their offerings
  • A+ Club which makes a few wheel sets

Keep in mind, many of the above are geared to a Fujim/Aoshima or Tamiya mounting to the spindle and will take work. Some have no mounting components and you are on your own. Also, some, such as FG Model and Tuner Model manufactory don't include tires or you'll have to buy a separate tire set (as does Hobby Design).

You can also raid the Revell California Wheel or like series to use the modern wheels/tires they provide.

Here are a very few examples of the wheels offered:

Thanks, those are nice wheels sets. I assume all those pictures you provided are Aoshima wheel/tire sets. What is the best on-line distributor to order Pegasus and Aoshima tire/wheels from?

For Pegasus, I would recommend Scale Dreams:

For the others, I have not yet found a consistent US outlet, so you have to go offshore. Also, many of the sets above are sold out or discontinued. Some manufacturers (like Aoshima and Fujimi) do these in limted runs and there can be a long time before a reissue, if at all. So, be aware, watch them and be ready to buy if a set pops up you want.

I would recommend looking at:

HobbyLink Japan:

or

HobbySearch Japan:

I've also been told Hobbyeasy in Hong Kong is good and has better prices, but I have never used them:
