Posted a question on his You-tube video, maybe he'll get back with us. In the meantime, I found a couple places that sell "wheel skins" but nothing that really looks like a "steelie". I paged through them all and found a few that could work...

Now that's a clever idea! Also gives more possibilities for wheel sizes than typical steel wheels! I like steel wheels, but they are limited size choices without going to a custom built wheel.

Any idea where that came from? Looks like it could be vacuum formed from plastic sheet, set in place, and held on by the cap.

No price list so they're prolly a budget buster.

Yeah, I didn't get the sense that they were a low-cost option...

farna That's right, we've had some discussions about that car already! Hard to keep boards and conversations straight sometimes...

Cool little car, you're right those wheels gotta go.
