    Your comments are interesting as I’ve been using Gibson wagon wheels for donkeys years and never had any problems. Well, OK, you need to make sure the tyres are properly on the centre, and I always check the B2B before installation. Also there is sometimes a moulding pip on the back that needs shaving off. Just prep work really, and then they are superb. The appearance is also so much better than RTR. I think if you are new to EM this fiddling and fitting is something you need to get used to, loco kits being a classic example. Stuff produced by cottage industry is unlikely to ever be ‘fit and forget’ in the same way as expensive mass produced stuff. Please don’t let me put you off – all this is fun!
