I'm slowly recommissioning all the cars from my teenage years and bought some new tyres for the F40 as the old ones had cracked. I hadn't realised though that the wheels had gone brittle and had also cracked, so although still tight they are running miles from true.

I'd like to keep the correct Ferrari style wheels and ideally use the same tyres as they're brand new, but aside from direct replacement wheels from Scalextric (Which I'm reluctant to do because frankly, they're rubbish), what alternatives are out there?

Hi there,

I have seen lots of F40 Scalextric wheels on that well known auction site at sensible money.

Alternatively Fly, SCX and Slot.it have all made F40s (i know I have 52 F40 slot cars at the last count
)

Or, if you are feeling rich, Sloting.com do a beautiful 5 spoke alloy wheel (in alloy) that looks the business on F40s....

I recently purchased a couple of sets of Ferrari rims with tyres for £2.99 a set of eBay and not had any problems with them. Nice tight fit and not much truing needed. The same company also sell a complete axle set for £5.99, just search for Ferrari wheels and they should come up.
