Hello!
I am looking for replacement t-55 wheels. I see that verlinden has a set, anyone had a chance to look at them in person? If so are they worth it?
The only other options seem to be burned out ones, and I am not doing a burned out tank

They make 2 sets. One set has the larger hubs for the front wheels as seen on later T55s. The other set has all the same size hubs for T54s and early T55s.

Yes I ordered both sets, along with the T62 set and the Rmsh track set for T55/62s they have out from them now. Took about 10 days from Hong Kong to the Midwest.

I picked up a couple of sets over the years and they are very nice.
