this is a custom roll back for my roommate. ive done everything so far besides the bodywork and the stretch. he wanted this truck to be different in its own way so it is so far (mainly the wheel choice) and seeing how its for him and he payed for it all i cant argue...anyways this is what we have so far

thank you and very much so. if it were me i would have done it with the original wheels. but like you said hes the boss and although its going to look like a dub city edition it should still look cool in its own way. and for a reference we just looked up the truck online and i through out some dimensions and so far they seem to be pretty well perfect

cool idea .

thank you

Cool...Question

Is the kit tires in yours worth while or are they junk to? ...Been trying to find another set...

if its the revell pete or kenworth they are pretty well no good. shallow offset and crummy tires. from what i can tell al other kits have pretty good wheels and tires. i wish that the 53ft geat Dane trailers were a liitle cheaper because they have by far the best rims with them. the rims mate properly and the have hubs and more. otherwise the white freight-liner and the international transstar rims work for me. those kits range from $20 to $30 around here

on another note if you want a low pro tire the 1/32 semi tires work great. just buy one of those dicast sets with the truck and trailer and you have a couple sets
