Optimaniac's restoration Shopping list : 7. KYOSHO.DE


German Official Kyosho webshop

You still can find some vintage wheels or tires from Kyosho. Really.

W-5078 tires

W-5021 Chromed OT-67 wheels wide

W-5022 Chromed Wheels narrow (can be combined with Pargu's Half Alu wheels or even with classic white Kyosho OT-67 wheels)

Of course, they are vintage stuff, so they flake easily. Not to be compared with Pargu's Aluminium wheels (well, his wheels are too heavy to race though) :D
