Was wondering if I would ever get to use this icon.
I expect to get blasted for questioning someone else's personal choice, But, those HUGE , WIDE wheels ???

I agree with you Clay. I am not a fan of huge wheels and rubber band tires on either real cars or models.
But it all is a personal choice to everyone.

Ash: Geezerman and I often cross swords over details, but this time he and I are together on the subject of the wheels. Having now seen the kit wheels I really think they are superior. They give more realism to the model. The rest of the build is absolutely great. Having bashed your wheels though, I have to stress it's your build; it's very competently done; you don't have to justify the wheels to anybody. You are a talented builder and have built a model to be proud of. Model on my friend.

Thanks Mr J, appreciate your comments.

The truck is on my shelf with the original kit wheels on but as you well know, you have to try these things before you know what the outcome will be.
