The WS-1202 wheel set is a conversion set to be used with the Protar Alfa Romeo 179 kit #167. They replace the kit wheels to make it possible to make the early versions of the car that raced in 1979. The kit contains 4 13 inch wheels (2 front and 2 rear) and must be used with the #ST-1204-13 tire set. This set may also be used on the Heller Ligier JS11 kit #790 with some modifications to the kit parts. The set is engineered to fit the Protar kit but the Ligier JS11 used the same wheels and tires so while they are correct for the Ligier, they have not been engineered to fit the Ligier kit parts. The images shown are with the ST-1204-13 tire set in place. The set is made up of 4 machined wheel rims with 4 cast white metal wheel centers. All of the hardware needed is included in the set and is easily installed in the pre drilled holes. All hardware is by RB Motion and includes 32 bead lock bolts, 32 photo etched (PE) bead lock bolt washers, 4 tire air valve stem, 56 stud/nut combination for the wheel center bolts & 56 PE wheel center bolt washers. To complete the package for this conversion of the Protar Alfa 179 Icon Automotive Miniatures suggests the purchase of the fantastic new decal set by Best Balsa Kits in Belgium.

The white Metal wheel centers pictured below have been Glass Bead Blasted to give them a rougher texture. The wheel centers provided in the wheel sets are NOT Glass Bead Blasted. This was done only as a test and they are the only pictures I have of the unpainted wheel centers.
