Thanks for posting the pics, Tom!
At least they look so much better than the other IM’s I have. They do look a tad wider, or is it just an optical illusion?

They are wider, visually the same as FVM wide wheels. They are very similiar to BLMA, just slightly bigger.

I've tried a lot of wheels but not Rapido. I've pretty much completed converting all mine to FVM, BLMA. I also use MT metal wheels on a handful of cars I have that use MT trucks. I didn't think I would like them (MTs) but they look good to me and I like the plastic tapered axles.

My ultimate wheel would be FVMs profile, The machined wheel backs like BLMA and MTs tapered plastic axle.

The Rapido wheels are outstanding. I'm getting tired of waiting for FVM wheels and will start buying the Rapido wheels for my fleet. I wish Gustafson more sizes.

Has anyone tried the Rapido brand wheels yet?

Well, that’s kind of a good news, but why do they show a box of wheels as opposed to a photo a wheelset?
Anyone here has pics, or did I miss a thread or something again?

But those appear to be out-of-stock too, no?
