    4.6 out of 5 stars

    BSA Lightly Lathed Speed Wheels are precision tuned and super fast, while leaving all of the BSA markings in the inside and outside of the wheels.
    • Wheel tread is lightly lathed to make it trued to the center bore, so your car rolls smooth and fast. The beads along the wheel rim are still visible.

    • Hubs are lathed and the edge of the hub is squared to reduce friction and reduce wobble when the wheel meets the car body

    • Wheel rim is lathed to reduce friction when wheel hits track guide

    • Special lathing process makes wheels .2g lighter to reduce inertia, giving you a quicker start and faster rolling down the track

    Results - Your wheels are precision tuned and balanced, giving your car a quick start and making it super fast as it rolls down the track!

    Rules Notes:

    • Should be legal in BSA races that allow removing mold marks and truing up wheel to remove imperfections.
    • All BSA markings are intact inside and outside of the wheel.
    • Rules are different for every race! Always read your race rules.
    • Questions? Ask your race manager!

    Wheels were not all a matched mold set
    Wheels were NOT as advertised. Wheels were NOT matched with all four wheels from the same they are balanced as a set. Three were from mold #4 and one from mold #1. The one from mold #1 didn't always make contact with the table/track. It didn't seem evenly lathed. Luckily the check-in crew didn't notice the wheel issue. I was disappointed that our race times weren't really much faster than when I buy matched sets and prep them myself.

    Why would you try this yourself?
    My son placed 1st in class and 4th overall with 83 cars competing. I'm convinced that it was due to the axles, wheels & lubricant purchased here. I will buy all again every year we compete.

    We built 2 cars for my grandson this year. 1 for his town meet and 1 for the regional meet. He never lost a heat. At the regional meet the car set 4 track records. He is a Wolf and 1 tiger heat had a faster time by .002 seconds. Otherwise he has the next 6 fastest times of he day. Axels,, wheels, square mounting holes, 5 coats of polyurethane, and good weight placement. WOW!

Matched these up with the bsa polished axles to take 1st overall in den, 3rd overall in pack (2nd fastest lap time overall) a big fat trophy and best of all a gigantic smile from my son that lasted for days. Only 2nd time in derby and last year with just kit parts we weren't even a blip on the radar. Thanks Joe.

    time saver
    These wheels come full prepped and ready to use. We have tried truing our own wheels using only having basic tools with limited and disappointing success. These wheel save a lot of the time and guesswork. We usually only have about a week from the time the cars are passed out to the check in so saving time is very important to us. We have been using these wheels for the last 3 years of races. Had only 1 wobbly wheel out of 5 sets. I can't say its all about the wheels, but they have certainly been a contributing part of our consistent top 5 finishes every year

    These Wheels are a must
    These wheels are a must for anyone that wants wheels that are a match and perfectly balanced. All we did with these wheels was polish them and did not spend hours on end getting them ready to run in the derby as my son and I have in previous years. My sons car has taken second place the previous three years but this year using these wheels he took first place. His car ran 12 times and won all 12 races. The second place car never came closer than one car length at the finish line. These wheels are a must and a great time saver.

    Precision Lathed Wheels and Graphite Lube
    I purchased the precision lathed wheels and graphite moly lube for my sons car. Both arrived quickly and exactly as-ordered. I had previously purchased some lathed and coated axles. The combination worked great! His car went a 2.464 on our track besting the best of the other ~75 cars in the troop by 0.020 seconds. I would highly recommend these products

    These wheels give you just the right amount of edge without pushing it past the Cub Scout rules. I've been tempted to go for the graphite coated wheels, etc. but don't feel that is within reason, but these matched and trued wheels are nothing outside of the rules and I feel it takes a lot of the random luck out of what you get with the standard kit. Combined these with the PRO super speed axles and we set a track record and went undefeated winning the entire pack and heading to districts next month. We even set the track record! There were 80+ scouts in the pack races, and this pack has had this track for 10 years, so to put it lightly we are impressed with these components and will be coming back for next year!

    You need these!
    My two sons and I built their cars using the Graphite Axels, BSA Precision Lathed Speed Wheels, the Precision Drilled Pinewood Derby Block, the Graphite with Moly Additive and we downloaded a design they picked off of this site (the spider.) These cars dominated finishing 1 & 2 and breaking the track record 5 times between them! What I liked was that, outside of the table saw operation to cut the block, they were able build these cars on their own including trace the plans, sand, paint, apply decals and glue the axels, add the weight yet they were working with quality supplies that add the winning edge. Trust me, you will have much more fun with a competitive car than a slouch!

    Super Fast and smooth
    I purchased these along with the PRO Super Speed Axles and they did as promised. The car was the fastest ever on the track the pack level. Took first in the Den and Best time in the pack by nearly a tenth of a second. Took second in District race due looser rules than our pack, so we were a little slower, but only by five hundredths of a second. Not too bad. Next year we will build two cars, one matching the pack rules and one matching the district rules.

    Speed Wheels Work
    Ordered the slotted graphite axles and the speed wheels. Sons were second and third. Third faster car out of 64 entries (district race). Would have won but car developed a wobble on the last of 4 runs (father error). Would have ordered the light weight wheels but was concerned they would be disqualified due to the material cut away. Highly recommended.

    Awesome Wheels
    Car finished with fastest "average" time in entire pack. Very consistent runs within 0.008 of a second between fastest and slowest run. Won 1st place in den. These "trued" wheels are worth every penny if you cannot do this yourself. One car had a faster single run time beating us by 0.002 seconds but remainder of their runs were much slower by over .01 seconds. We are talking highly tuned cars here. Installed on standard BSA axles sanded to 2000grit and then polished with pumice. 4th wheel on car offset. Car also used longer wheelbase than stock block grooves. Car shape was a simple modified wedge. ALL aspects of car design and modifications are legal in our area. Probably also in most areas - check first though! This was a true father/son effort. I provided the physics and instructions regarding acrylic paint job, and proper tool usage. Son provided most of the labor and was highly involved every step of the way. We have about 40 hours into this car - from my sons concept to completion. My personal note

    The description of the product does not say how easy they are to use. All we had to do was apply the dry graphite and my son took first place out of his Pack. If a person wanted to brag 18 out of 18 races. Helped by the wheel and Axle combination.

    Huge Difference
    Pinewood Pro's lathed wheels are lightning fast. (My Webelos-age son took first place in the pack. His younger brother--a Bear--took third using these wheels.) It is possible to replicate the wheel modifications yourself using standard BSA wheels, but the effort and equipment necessary would be considerable. The lathing may seem like a small thing, but the difference is huge.

    We purchased these wheels to replace the stock ones I had prepped due to a crash during the pinewood derby as we didn't have time to prep and sand another set. The car actually preformed slower than the stock ones. It was so slow a couple of parents asked me after the race what happened to the car.
