I just testfitted these to my beat-up 1/6 Cub, restoring it at the moment. Wheels are great, but they don't give much cushion. Real Cubs use 30 inch or bigger wheels for the bush, so these should be about correct for a 1/5 or 1/6 scale. I posted a couple of pics in the files section.
These wheels are only for big scale models. I use them in a 84" Fly Baby model with a 25cc gasoline engine and the shock absorbing is perfect. The model weights 9 kgs. Great quality and with this size will take off even with high grass.
This wheel has a hub that appears to be molded in nylon. The axle hole fits nicely over 3/16" pianowire (very close to 5mm) and they run very true. The hub cannot be dissassembled, nor can the tyre be removed. The tyre is of a quite hard "rubber" material, not like the soft rubber on a Dubro wheel. Doesn't provide much in the way of shock absorbtion when a pair is fitted to my 6.5kg model. They should however last a long time as they are well made and look quite scale. A bargain at the price. I'm pleased by HC yet again. Cheers

je suis très satisfait de ces roues. Elles sont montées sur un Stinson 220 cm de 5 kg.. je n'ai plus de problème de décollage et atterrissage dans un champ. De plus elles sont bien équilibrées et tournent rond.
