Hi guys

I was wondering if someone know where I can find wheel sleeves. I can't find anywhere who carry it. Or if somebody know how to make homemade sleeve would be nice :icon16: I saw pegasus hobbies has one I think it got discontinued and no one want to carry it. Let me know thanks

Depends on the sizes you need.
Scale productions has a few options

And Tuner Model Factory has added a series of 20" aluminum rings in diff. widths. (Great prices as well.)
Mega Hobbies still lists the Pegasis wheel sleeves..

Try giving Pegasus Hobbies a call. They carry stuff in their store that's not on their website like the Aoshima wheels usually used on Bosozoko type cars. They stock themselves with their own stuff so unless they discontinued their own sleeves, you should be good getting a set. My problem with their sleeves is they are made for large wheels and even if you can slip on a set of Aoshima 18's, they'll end up being like 20 inch wheels and I dont build trucks or models that would look good on 20's. Eightyone81 has been willing to sell their stretched tires without the wheels. I wonder if they'd be willing to sell sets of lips alone?
