Finally, CHROME real Cragar S/S wheels in 1/18-scale
GMP (now ACME Trading Company) is a favorite of diecast
collectors not only for their great models but for their many wheel accessory
packs. Over a decade ago, GMP offered a “Muscle Car Tire and Wheel Set,” that
included chrome five-spoke wheels but they had plain center caps and the rear
wheels were quite shallow. Later, GMP issued an improved set of five-spoke
wheels with deeper rear rims and center caps featuring Cragar markings, but the
finish had the look of brushed stainless steel rather than the polished chrome
that distinguishes an S/S. Either of these older wheel sets are still eagerly
sought by collectors and regularly sell for $40 and up.
Stashed away for many years in a dry environment. These are vintage "Cragar" wheels that GMP used on many of their first Drag Nova's produced. High quality wheel sets, four rotors & calipers included! Blue "Cragar" logo center caps.
Deep Dish rear wheels. The chrome is very shiny.Now, thanks to a special purchase, Detroit Diecast is pleased make a
limited quantity of these 1/18-scale real chrome Cragar S/S wheel sets available
to collectors and modders. The fronts are narrow and capped by a skinny rubber
front runner tire for low rolling resistance. The rears are deeply-dished and
mount a meaty rear slick. The center caps display the white on blue Cragar
GMP never made these chrome Cragar S/S wheels available
separately--the only way to get your hands on these beauties was to buy an entire
car--an expensive proposition AND then you had to figure out how to remove them
without tearing up the model. Now, the ONLY way to get these wheel sets is to
buy them from Detroit Diecast.

On which models can I use these Detroit Diecast Cragar S/S wheels?
Detroit Diecast’s Cragar S/S wheel sets may be
modified to be used on a virtually any 1/18-scale car or truck. Note that
some--but not all--wheel swaps allow the wheels to roll. Because wheel mounting
systems differ among manufacturers and even between the front and rear wheels,
we supply detailed wheel swap tips & techniques to our customers as
guidelines only (offered upon request with purchase).
Tools typically required include small regular and Phillips
screwdrivers, an X-Acto knife, needle-nose pliers, drill bits, sandpaper and/or
needle file, and--for faster work--a rotary tool such as a Dremel with cutting
and grinding bits.
With a little creativity you can adapt these wheels to a
variety of tires for different stances and looks or pair the slicks and front
runners with rims from your parts box..
Wheel hub hole sizes are 5/32' inches, see pic above.
Note: Not all models will be a direct fit with this set, some modification may be required to axles or wheel hubs.
What if I’m all thumbs and can’t do the work myself?
