If its the same one as mine....it comes with the rims...screws...the spinning part and axles...am i right?...nm...i looked.

they are the same as mine...line up the holes in the front of the rim with the hole in the spinner part and use the screw to put them tgether..not too tight though..cause then it wont spin. anything else you want to know about them....they are a little thin though..only down side i saw. otherwise they're pretty nice...wouldnt mind a set for my 1:1 car....

thats because they are not screws, you need to push them in with the end of a blunt object, if you look close those are just ridges around the stud that hold them in place not screw threads. Coming to our meeting next friday? I am out of town but the guys would welcome you.
Peace

hey guys, quick question on the spintex rims. I know on the package they say 1/24 or 1/25 scale i think, but what do they actually look like in the real world. I mean, after putting them onto a model, does it look like a DUB city dicast, or does it actually still look scale? THanks

they will fit a 1:24 scale car..actually their like 20 inch rims for 1:24 scale...they are not as thick as the dub city ones..:smile:

I haven't used mine yet, but definitely Dub City, I think I am going to buy a truck to put them on so they look more in scale. They make a car look like a steam roller

Mine are not thick either, they are just way too tall to be in any realistic scale, I have the other type as well and they are really wide
