Now you can have sport scale wire wheels for your vintage models with all of the nostalgia and none of the difficult ‘spoke threading’. Our design incorporates 3D printed rims and hubs, with work hardened stainless steel spokes and fuel proof Nitrile tyes/tires. RCwirespokewheels vintage sport scale wheels are provided as a kit, to keep the costs down, and the pair can be assembled in just a couple of hours.  The 2023 v.2 wheels have a newly redesigned flanged hub providing a 25% increase in the spoke(s) bond length at both ends. The flanged design also allows for a reduced hub width while providing an improved angle between the hub and rim – better resisting side loads.  The ‘tyre to rim’ ratio has also been improved for a more pleasing look.  

The kit now comes with a centering fixture giving the builder complete control over the wheel construction.  The spoke holes are pre-aligned and angled between the hub and rims. The modeler supplies 30 minute Epoxy to bond the  spokes, and Medium CA glue to bond the tyre ends.  Take a closer look at assembly instructions further below. These are included in every kit.
