SP003 - White Wall Tire Special
This issue did not come with instructions. Others have mentioned this, as well. But, if you remember how you build the stock wheels, it is pretty much the same thing.
Here are some problems with wheels in general. In order to install these wheels, you will have to remove the stock wheels from your model. The trouble is, it is near impossible to remove the center caps to get to the screw. Luckily for me, I left the center caps off of my wheels in case I needed to adjust the fitting in the future.
This center cap problem also effects the white wall tires. Once you mount the wheels on, you close off the screw with the chrome domes. The domes will be very difficult to removed, especially without damage, once they are pressed in.
Second problem. It is March and still quite cold. This means that the rubber tires are hard, and the bulkiness of them do not allow them to flex. Therefore, pressing the wheel sections into the cold hard tires is near impossible.
I suggest either waiting for warming weather or, warming up the wheels in some warm water so there is a little give in the rubber. I have not put my wheels together yet, as I plan to keep the Time Machine as that way it looked in 1985, when it first rolled off Doc's van.
