The vincent rims really set this car off. I wish they were more available in the New World. Sure some guys have them and of course they're pricey. They just havent caught on in america.

Hey Bill, in case you didn't know (and I didn't either until last week) MEV now sells Vincent rims here in the USA......here's thier link:

Thanx TX, I had seen that Mike was carrying Vincents. I usually try not to bellyache about price. Everyone deserves to make a buck. Imported goods are always pricey. My mother is from Germany, so I'm working on a plan to use one of my cousins as a mule for vincent wheels. LOL. I'm excited to got some steels for my 904's, some spokes for my Jags and Maseratis, some five spokers for my Dino's, and some wide fuchs for my 911 RSR AFX, maybe the Lolas too. Gotta have extras too. I mounted some spoke vincents(old fallers) that I recieved in the bottom of an<a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-1751-2978-71/1?AID=5463217&PID=1606754&mpre=http%3A//www.ebay.com"> eBay!</a> pitkit bonanza on a Maserati. Now I'm hooked! Thanks for your quick response - Bill

Bill, true they are somewhat pricey...but I'm used to buying RRR wheels for $3.00 a set. I just checked RRR's site the other day and now it seems that RRR's wheels are now $3.50 a set.

I've been away from the slot car hobby for a year and a half or so.......so I haven't kept up with alot of goings on within the hobby.

I am excited at the chance to get some of those Vincent wheels (especially the Fuchs) for my VW's though.....
