    Those wheels really set that alt mode off. As said before, amazing how a small change can just completely improve the look. Amazing.

    Are you going to change the fender flares and make him a wide body?

    This is a great mod but the bay seller won't ship to Canada! Argh!

    A few newer shots with some of the Smokescreen reprolabels applied.

    turbobluestreak, would love to do the widebody fenders to make it 100% accurate! Just a little uncertain about the clearance of the front fender hinges/folding portions- if these would still properly work with the fenders extended out. But definitely an experiment I would like to try... maybe on a KO version just to be safe :)  For anyone wondering how to remove the stock plastic wheels, I just used a flathead screwdriver to pry them off. Pretty simple fortunately.

    I wish a third party would make add-on kits for the masterpiece racing cars, complete with wheel arches, spoilers, correct racing sponsor stickers, etc. It's shocking that, for a MASTERPIECE figure, TT didn't bother to remold the car/s accurately...

    I can see why they just went with repaints (money) but I totally agree- fender flare add ons and rubber tire kits would be a hot seller for me. I have 8 Autobot cars that need wheel upgrades and Smokecreen definitely could use some add ons. Oh and Ironhide and Ratchet too

    Outstanding.

    What was the removal and attaching like?

    Can you elaborate a bit more on the process?
    Do they spin still?
    How did you slender the tires, as you mentioned doing?
    How do they attach?

    Nice. Rubber tires should be the standard.

    Yes, please show tutorials. This looks badass. Wonder if they made these kind of wheels for Sideswipe, he needs the fat rubber tires like a Lamborghini should.

    Does anyone know where to buy thicker rivets for the 1/32 wheels mentioned on the front page? I took off the originals wheels but the rivets are just too small for the 1/32 scale rims to catch.
