    Get the fastest "lightly-lathed" BSA wheels on the market! Nine speed advantages! We start with BSA wheels from the kit, mold match them, then precision lathe the inside tread, outside tread, the wheel rim, hubs and finally, square the hubs. The result is a slightly lighter wheel/tire that is precision tuned. Lastly, the treads and hubs are perma-coated with graphite using our patented process. You get the slickest, fastest lightly-lathed BSA wheels on the market!

    We won the Pinewood Derby District Race with these specially coated can too!

    Secret patented multi-step process to perma-coat with graphite-moly lube...the only wheels on the market with our patent-pending process. You can see the silver shiny surface and feel the smooth, friction-free surface.
    • Wheel is trued in every dimension to remove bumps and mold imperfections, so your car starts fast and rolls smoothly down the track.

    • The rim still has the beads and the outside diameter is 29.8mm (1.17") vs stock wheels 30mm (1.18")

    • The thickness of the tread is 1.15mm vs stock wheels 1.35mm

    • Wheels are matched with all four wheels from same they are balanced as a set.

    • Hubs are lathed and coned and squared to reduce friction where wheel meets car body.

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

    • Special lathing makes wheels approximately .2g lighter while leaving all BSA markings intact, giving you a quicker start and faster rolling down the track.

    • Track tested and proven to increase speed.

    • Note that wheel tread will be silver, not black, due to graphite coating.

    The graphite-coating reduces friction where the wheel contacts the track and where the wheel hub rubs against the car.

    Your car will fly down the track like on a frictionless cushion of air.

    Another Winning Secret from the PRO's at Pinewood Pro.

    Rules Notes:

    • Should be legal in BSA races that allow removing mold marks and truing up wheel to remove imperfections, and that allow graphite lubrication.
    • 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!

    Not worth the money
    All 4 wheels had rough patches on the outside and inside edges. Had to sand off rough areas to make wheels roll smooth

    Ok but needed work.
    Outer edges of the wheels still had molding that had to be trimmed. The graphite coating in turn had to come off. I made it work but won’t go this route again.

    wheels did ok
    Used these wheels on a car that finished 3rd last year. The wheels were the only change made and the same track was used. The car's average time was 1.002 seconds slower with these wheels. However they are much better than stock wheels and are good choice if you don't have the tools to modify the ones that come in the BSA kit.

    winners circle
    Great products; I purchased wheels, axles plus the secret tips, all of which put us in the winner circle this year. Easily won the pack races and finished sixth over all in the district races. The first race ran set the overall time record, but slowed down a little, I think this came down to a seven year old not getting the car straight on the track because the last race of the day was only .4 off the first race and that time was the last race in the districts, my grandson loved working on the this together Next year I will upgrade!! PS The tips are worth the money Thanks Joe

    Aside from the fact that the tread part is covered in graphite, it is impossible to tell these tires have been modified in any way -- except speed! My son never lost a race. Heck, the only car that came close was another car I built that didn't use these wheels -- but my son's car still won by a car length!

    Although I came in 3rd I don't feel that the wheels made a difference. I've won before when I prepped my own wheels. Pros - saves you time so you don't have to do your own.

    I bought the standard body, the graphite coated axles and these wheels and we won. I did very little other than put them on and sprinkle a little graphite on. My son won every heat and the final. Closest car was a full car lenght behind. These are fast

    Saved our Butt!!!
    These wheels saved our butt, I wasn't back in town in time for registration. Wife registered and car was locked down dry. We still won our den and took third overall in pack, then added the graphite for fun and raced the overall champ 3 times and beat him easily all three...

    These mated with the graphite axles can help overcome many other tuning issues your car may have. A great option for those of us that think that a USB charger is a power tool. Kid won pack with ease vs the numerous entries from a family of engineers. Fun times.

    The wheels are where it's at as far as speed goes. Why not get the fastest wheels? My car got 1st place with these wheels. The only thing I was worried about was that they had a little too much shine to them and I was afraid that they would be disqualified for not being stock. No one seemed to notice and I said nothing.

    I purchased the axels, wheels and the tungeston putty. After applying all of the technics I learned from you book, my boy and were excitted to see if all of our work would pay off. My boy did not lose 1 race. In fact we won everyone by a 2 feet or more. The excitement and joy that was on my boy's face was priceless and well worth the time and money. Thanks!
