One problem I have always had in collecting Hot Wheels is being able to identify the
TYPE OF WHEEL on some of the Hot Wheels releases. I continually have to look
up on the Internet to try and find a specific type of wheel on some Hot Wheels. So I made out
a reference guide sheet today, and decided to post the Hot Wheels Wheel Style Types photos that
I used in making out my sheet for you fine Hot Wheels folks on Hobby Talk!

Sorry if someone else has already posted these too!

Thanks Backwoods for posting, I copied you pics and enlarged them in a Google doc. Now I can access it when out hunting to use it as a guide(will come in handy looking for wheel variations when I only know the name of the wheel and not what it looks like).

They are on some of the newer Car Culture Releases. The Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 EVO II, '92 BMW M3, and Porsche 962 just to name a few. They were also featured on the 2018 C Case Super Treasure Hunt 934.5 in white.
Thanks for the information.
It must be the way the picture looks because I've got the $uper 934.5 and it doesn't have the chrome accents.

What's with the original redlines at the bottom being labeled "Real Riders"?

Pretty sure the one labled 'type 1' is the US version (silver painted spokes) original redline, and the 'type 2' would be the HK version (chrome spokes).

'type 3' would probably be the 73 are later version with the hole in the middle
