Why a matched set?
BSA manufactures wheels from 18 different molds, numbered 1 to 18. The wheels in your kit can be from any of these molds. You can see the mold number embossed on the inside of each wheel.
Problem is, each mold is slightly different. Wheels can have slightly outside diameters, different bore sizes, hubs and tread characteristics.
When every milisecond counts, you want each wheel to be exactly the same because small differences will make the car slightly off balance affecting speed. Just like the car you drive, your wheels should be "balanced" to get optimal performance.
Pinewood Pro Matched wheel sets contain four wheels, each from the same mold to give you optimal performance, balance and speed.

When painting with children, it is better to use a paint brush rather than spray paint because spray paint can cause vapors. If the child is spray painting, be sure to use a breathing mask and be in an open area.
