    Getting the tires off is hard. I gave up on mine. If you want to, remove the tire, tape the truck up and paint the wheel with chrome paint.

    I agree with the above. I'm in the process of repainting mine and I ended up taking the whole cab apart, with alot of headaches. The axle to the front wheels has the outer collets on it and then on the inside of the chrome legs there is a Brass collet for the springs. Trying to get the outer collet off nearly caused the two cab pieces to collapse on themselves almost ruining one side. Soooo, tape, tape, tape. Do not attempt to take this apart or you'll be in the position I'm in with trying to put the UM back together without marring my paint job. Good luck and wish me luck.
