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.

Tips & Hints
Spin each wheel on a polished axle with graphite and count the number of revolutions. If a wheel wobbles, try spinning it again. If it still wobbles, get another wheel that does not wobble.
Our PRO Graphite, with molybdenum disulfide, is a proven winner. Our Track Tests show an average speed increase of 17%.
Don't attach feathers or big decorative parts that can cause drag. This will decrease your car speed

This is our second order with Pinewood Pro and everything from the website to the delivery to the product has been excellent. As a Dad experiencing his first Cub Scout Pinewood Pro is a great resource to make sure I don't screw up! Thanks,

This will be my 3rd year ordering from you. This year I have an 8 year old son, a ten year old son, and my 12 year old daughter's young women group is also doing the pinewood derby. We are still undefeated – Last year we purchased your wheels and axles and won 1st place again, 2 years running!
