Fujimi and Aoshima put out most of the wheels you see on this thread. www.hlj.com has a few and then Hobby Search Japan is another place. Here is the list that they carry. You have to watch and check back often to see which are available. Aoshima has a habit of doing small runs of their wheels and then not doing them for a few years. Best bet is to grab them when you see them. HLJ has a nice new 'private warehouse' feature that will let you store things for up to 60 days so that you can do one large shipment rather than a bunch of little ones. Helpful if you are buying a bunch of wheel sets.

That's an excellent job for a first kit..... my first one was a '69 Camaro Z28; albeit it looked like it had just come out of the crusher! :lol:

Rocket Bunny GT86!

That is about as far as I have gotten with it as Gundam kits have distracted me lately. I did get some resin rims for it as I do not like the rims that come with the kit. I bought some TE37s in 17 inch. I have test fit everything from 18-20 inches and they just look silly. The 17s look much better with the wheel well size on the 86. I also picked up some TE37V in 16 inch, just have to decide if they will go on an AE86, G-nosed 240 or a Hako. Maybe I will just order a couple more sets and go from there. No pics of the rims just yet.
