Wanted - four spoke wheels

Postby TimLucas » Wed Aug 21, 2019 4:54 am

Hi All,
I come the Lotus79 party late - but am trying to build the Dutch 1978 car from the Tamiya 1/20 kit. From yuor excellent research in this forum I now realise that I need four spoke wheels for the front.
Does anyone know of a cheap way of obtaining four spoke wheels? Does anyone have a spare set they would be willing to part with?

Thanks
Tim

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Well, although here:
https://www.racingsportscars.com/f1/pho ... 08-27.html
you may see that also 6 spoke wheels were used (practice?) it seems that the 4 spoke ones you look for are the same as the ones used by the Williams FW07, that's a quite common wheel. I am sure someone can give you a pair, if those are what you are looking for.
If I am not wrong, that'd be fine, at least the Lotus 80 also used those.
