    Woulda put this in customs but they wanted a photo...which I dont need for a question >.>

    Is it possible to remove the rubber tires and wheels from RiD cars?

    I was checking their scale today and noticed with some slight modifications, you could essentially put them on Sideswipe and Maybe Silverstreak. The Wheels on RiD Prowl Specifically look like authentic Lambo Rims and would look sweet on Sunstreakers/Sideswipe and give the classics the much needed Rubber tires.

    How do you remove wheels on TF? Heat up the pin?

    Yup, its possible

    As you said, the common and best method is to heat up the pin with a soldering iron. Be careful though to prevent any damage to the rim and dont forget to remove the rubber tires before doing any kind of work (also keep in mind RiD tires are known to crack rather easily)

    When i made my Dragstrip custom from Classics Mirage, i swaped the tires from a Ford GT Roadbot (another good source for parts & rubber tires)

    Crack eh? thats odd, I have a whole slew of RID cars for parts and all the tires are mint. Maybe I am lucky dunno. I am gonna keep my eyes open...but I do believe that the classics need rubber tires!
