For Wheel Lovers

I am sure many of you collect die cast models of cars, motorcycles and such. It’s a common hobby among many car enthusiasts. The question is what if you are one of those wheel fanatics and you worship all those old school forged racing wheels; stuff just like the eternal BBS RS rims that are still in high demand until today.

If you have an obsession in wheels/rims/forged-metal then these are for you, scaled down models of original old school Japanese racing rims:

I spotted these on www.japanesenostalgiccar.com and apparently these are no longer produced but it seems they are still roaming around, being traded form person to person. I find it a nice and special thing to have, I mean everybody collects models of complete cars but collecting rare and vintage models of actual wheels.

They come in 1/6 scale, so they are not as tiny as you might expect. Apparently these date back to the 80s and they are not being made anymore, plus I cannot spot any of them anywhere so perhaps they are now considered antique collectors’ items.
