RX-7 wheels, various series

Both Aoshima and Fujimi frequently sell sets of wheels and tires. Some of these wheels were either custom designed for RX-7 models or are popular aftermarket options for RX-7, I've listed those on this page.


DiOlex logo DiOlex wheels In 2018 a number of aftermarket resin wheel sets became available, made by 'DiOlex Production'. These sets are available through eBay (store uscpofficialstore).

These wheels come with a choice of stub-axles or ring mounts, making them suitable for Tamiya, Fujimi and Aoshima kits.
Since the resin wheels come unpainted, I've added a picture of an actual full size wheel to each description.



The listing is split up by type:

The wheels are similar to those in the Tamiya Rx-7 FB kit, only better: Tamiya made the slots in the spaces between the rotor and the rim too large, the DiOlex wheels look exactly right.

RX-7 FC

box top (23.8kB)

BBS RS 15in wheels (Fujimi, Group A Slick Tire & Wheel Set Nr.1, cat. nr. GT-1)

first released in 1986

The wheels in this set are a good match for the 15in 6.5JJ BBS wheels that were factory fitted to export versions of the RX-7 Cabriolet and to early FC3S Infinity versions.
These Fujimi wheels are actually of a slightly larger diameter (about 15.5in) but the difference is hard to notice and the tires in the Tamiya kit will fit these wheels well.
The wheels are designed to be fitted to metal axes (included in the set) so this needs to be modified before fitting them to a Tamiya kit.
Do note that all four wheels in this set are about 10in wide but Fujimi also released sets of BBS RS wheels containing (much) wider rear wheels.


BBS RS 15in wheels (Fujimi, Tire & Wheel Set Nr. IU26, cat. nr. 19141)

released in 1990

box top (9.1kB)

This set contains the same BBS RS wheels as the 'Group A' set listed above, but this time Advan HF 'type D' tires are included instead of slicks.
Fujimi released these wheels repeatedly in new packages, with new catalog numbers and different types of tires included. This particular set was available until 2010.

RE Amemiya AW-7 18in wheels (Fujimi, Parts Maker Wheel Nr.3, cat. nr. 19211)

released in November 2000

Back in 2000 this was a nice surprise from Fujimi: the full-size versions of these AW-7 wheels were custom made for RE Amemiya for use on his FD3S-based super cars, suggesting that Fujimi was planning an RE Amemiya FD3S model.
Indeed, Fujimi had two new RX-7 FD3S kits planned for release in february 2001 (a street version and a race car, both based on RE Amemiya's awesome 'RE Super G'), but unfortunately both kits got subsequently cancelled. In 2006 Fujimi made up for this cancellation by releasing an excellent RE Amemiya µ Boost Up 7 SPL kit.
These AW-7 wheels were later fitted to the Tohge RX-7 FD kit.
The wheels come fitted with the very latest Bridgestone Potenza RE-711 tires.

released in November 2000

Both Aoshima and Fujimi do a couple of Veil Side tuned car kits, Aoshima does a nice RX-7 FD3S, but the wheels in the kit differ somewhat from the Marriott wheels fitted to the real thing. This little problem can be fixed with these excellent Fujimi Marriott wheels.
The set includes the ever popular Bridgestone RE-71 tires and a small sheet with decals for the wheel centers.
