Problem with some of the new design wheels from Revell, is they only fit the tires that go with them .... Not a fan at all with the new design

OK, I can understand that from Revells perspective.

Is there anyone who makes a generic version?

Yes, once modified they fit the Goodyear Blue Streak Sports Car Special tires well, but you need to remove the inner "stop." They aren't to difficult to modify, but it's not easy to keep the chrome plating perfect while you remove the outer ribs.

I'm working on some modified versions of the kit wheels, so when they are ready I will post here.
