VeilSide 18in Andrew Baccarat wheels (Fujimi, Parts Maker Wheel Nr.41, cat. nr. 19251)

released in October 2004

box top (6.6kB)

These wheels are included in the Fujimi VeilSide RX-8 Ver.1 Model kit, however the ones in this set are satin aluminum plated. Like the wheels in the RX-8 kit, these wheels are not handed like the real ones, so four righthand side wheels are included in this set.
The wheels are fitted with Bridgestone Potenza RE-711 tires.
No decals for the wheel centers are included.


VeilSide 18in Andrew Baccarat wheels (Fujimi, The * Wheel Nr.33, cat. nr. 19302)

released in February 2008

box top (6.1kB)

This is the improved version of set 19251. Fujimi changed the patterns, this time the wheels are handed, so the pattern on two of the wheels is reversed.
The wheels are satin aluminum plated and fitted with Bridgestone Potenza RE-711 tires.
No decals for the wheel centers are included.



ENKEI Racing RP03 18in wheels (Fujimi, Parts Maker Wheel Nr.42, cat. nr. 19252)

Aoshima Work Emotion CR Kai 18in wheels (S-Parts Tire & Wheel Set Nr.133, cat. nr. 036914)

released in October 2005

box top (17.8kB) Wheels like these were fitted to the RX-8 racers #69 and #70 that ran the 24hr Daytona 2008 race as featured on the Studio27 decal sheets.
These wheels have 'female' type connectors, just like Fujimi uses, but for the race cars you need to replace the Pirelli P-Zero tires with some 18in slicks.



Aoshima Work Emotion CR Kiwami 18in wheels (The Tuned Parts Nr.22, cat. nr. 053003)

released in January 2017

box top (17.7kB) The full size Emotion CR wheels got improved again so their designation changed from 'Kai' (improved) to 'Kiwami' (ultimate). Although the differences are hard to spot at 24th scale, Aoshima made new patterns for this latest version of the Work Emotion CR wheels, main differences between the new ones and the Kai version are: no rim at the inside of the wheels and nicer hub details.
Wheels looking similar to these were fitted to the RX-8 racers #69 and #70 that ran the 24hr Daytona 2008 race as featured on the Studio27 decal sheets.
These wheels have 'female' type connectors, just like Fujimi uses, but for the race cars you need to replace the tires with some 18in slicks.
