I just spotted this, they are 17" rims, and come from Fujimi so I doubt they be any good. But is anyone planning to get them? Who knows Fujimi may be getting their act straight, although I don't think so.

Saw them up on HS a couple of weeks back, didn't get excited when i read that the were going to be 17". Their other new wheel release is 15" WTF:dunno: When will they realise that we want 18" minimum? This is what annoys me the most about Fujimi.

Edit: Just looked on HS and it seems they have two more sets due in August;

Nismo LM-GT4 (http://www.1999.co.jp/asp/GoodsDetails_e.asp?Bno=&Typ1_c=102&Typ2_c=106&Typ3_c=122&SPage=1&SC=73&SN=Autos+Wheels&It_c=10033048&andor=0&scope=0&scope2=0&thumb=1&sortID=1&urikire=1&sort_sort=0&ItKey=&app_url=shop_right_e.asp) - No doubt these are the same that appear in the Nismo Elgrand kit that Joeclaw showed pics of. I think he said they were 18" too:smile:

Techno Racing TV.R (http://www.1999.co.jp/asp/GoodsDetails_e.asp?Bno=&Typ1_c=102&Typ2_c=106&Typ3_c=122&SPage=1&SC=73&SN=Autos+Wheels&It_c=10033049&andor=0&scope=0&scope2=0&thumb=1&sortID=1&urikire=1&sort_sort=0&ItKey=&app_url=shop_right_e.asp) - Don't know what these are:dunno:

You get those wheels with the Initial D Nobuhiko altezza. There pretty nice. Probably the fav ones ive got on all my model cars.
Might get some more now to put on other cars.

Since we're talking about Aoshima and Fujimi I'd like to know what happened to the Aoshima advan Rg's.

I heard that the fujimi ones suck ass, but I think the aoshima ones are better.

Are the Aoshima Rs's OOP, I never see them in stock on Hobby Search or Hlj. :frown:

I think most likely they're oop.

Although I was looking on ebay and found some, I saw tonioseven bid on them. I'm jealous. :icon16:

You can get them in the C-West RX7 which continues to still be in production.

I was also thinking about that, and then I'll keep casting them in resin. :biggrin:

I guess these were one of the second batch of 18" Aoshima did hence the old style box.

My hobby shop has A LOT of those boxes, I looked at them but they don't really have a lot of the aoshima wheels I want.

I check them again.
