Default 1/12 trans am

My calculations come out to 1.25'' rims, any thoughts on rims or what else to do? I don't know of rims that small.

Pancar wheels with the center of a 1:12 Trans Am plastic kit if you can find one.
That is you is not gonna run it..

Tamiya Hornet have 1.5 wheels and so does TamTec cars..

Saw a Camaro build a few decades ago done that way in RCCA.



These are 1.5mm smaller than Hornet wheels

Any chance somebody could machine rims and I could cut-n-shut tires on?

HPI and Tamiya make some wheels that work. The 1/12 tam tech wheels are a little smaller, require a 10mm hex, and are getting harder to find. What model trans am did you find?

Here you go. The only problem is that it's going to end up costing you in the neighborhood of $250.
