    Got a junker G1 Crosshairs on eBay and did the same thing as my other wheel mod: Minor/Repaint: - Siege Crosshairs BIG WHEELS

    These wheels are definitely smaller, weigh less, and take up less space in robot mode than the monster truck wheels used before. Still totally reversible with the original wheels. Also interchangeable with the monster wheels if I choose.

    Looks great! I like both versions, but this one is a bit more subtle

    Agreed. The wheels in this one's bot mode aren't as protruding. The first one is still awesome, but this looks more refined.

    This just looks great and the wheels' size is perfect. I'd really like to see some more pictures in alt mode from a couple of more angles and the thumbnail view.

    Yeah, great work. I was also think about getting a g1 crosshair.

    Thanks!
    What’s also nice is the G1 crosshairs wheels are on pins which you can reuse with the mod, and the red rims are actually hubcaps you can pop off, mount the wheels, pop the caps back on, and it totally hides the mounting pin.

    I think this is awesome but just a shame Hasbro didn't do this for this version of Crosshairs. I really think this looks even more like the G1 figure.

    Not sure why you’d need to design new ones, but whatever you prefer to do with it.

    Ah. Ok. if you want large wheels on Ratchet and Ironhide. But you’d have to buy those G1 Crosshairs wheels for them also.

    The first one feels more G1 loony stuff, while this one feels more actual siege.

    That looks great, and definitely gives it the full "Crosshairs" look.
