Default King Kong RC M26 Wheels

The road wheels on my Tamiya Pershing are shot & falling apart from bearing lubricant so I want to replace with metal. I don't care to retrofit using the HL aftermarket parts so was curious if anyone here has purchasing those made by King Kong RC?

Any & all comments welcome. Thanks.

They appear very nice Charles. I see they don't include the appropriate bearings and are you
supposed to reuse the Tamiya rubber tires; possibly I overlooked the photo that showed the tires?

Yes, one reuses the rubber tires that come with the kit Tamiya kit. I'm reaching out to the manufacturer today regarding bearings & some other questions.

Yes, re-working the HL metal set is a bit of a pain...

As Gomer Pyle used to say years before, "SHAZAM!" Ordered these Saturday night & they appeared on my desk this morning at 0845.

Package is superb & the parts are very nice, actually better than I expected & are assembled to boot. I'll do a test fit once I get home this evening.
