Thank you for the review Harry. If there is enough interest, we'll offer a wider version of this wheel as well. Please let us know what you think.

That's a pity, these would be nice replacements for the Fly truck rear wheels for example if they were 3/32. Also a lot of the 1/24 scratch built hard body cars would look nice with a wheel like that, but none of the builders out here anyway use 1/8 axles any more.

Well Paul Gage already mounted the standard (ribbed 1/32) ones on the Fly. Looks pretty good.

But hey, if the interest is there...no telling what could happen.

Yes, yes, YES!!! I have a whole bunch of 1/24 scale tire molds that don't have the rib. These will be a much more versatile wheel for me. Can't wait to use them.

I'm finishing up a 1/24 build right now, using the ribbed wheels. It will make it's debut in a few days.

Oh Yes! Just what the Dr. ordered for these Midget racers I am building!
Thanks SCC for again bringing a much needed product.

MB Slot makes these. Nice and fat on the rear and normal width on the front. I've spare set of the fronts you can have if you like.

We've received quite a few requests for a 3/32" axle version of the 1:24 Classic Steel Wheels with no center rib. We're pleased to announced it is now available. Here's a link:

I wouldn't mind racing those trucks. I just looked for reviews and I guess there's none? Is Fly and Scalextric the only ones being made?

Oops.....I found the review on the fly trucks.
