tqrcracing.com normally carries them. They're not premount - you get just the rims. They are designed to mount the Shimizu rubber tyres, which are as good as any other for asphalt unless it gets really warm. The good news is that they have a lip that seats the tyre much better than just using the Tamiya ones.

Give 'em a quick wash, rinse and dry and the tyres stay stuck

PS: Just noticed that NBHC might be carrying them...

I'm a slow builder but am thinking of a step by step photo build if there's enough interest

Order is pending at Great Planes, which means it won't be long until most North American hobby stores get kits. Looks like the price will be a smidgen bit higher than the F104v2 Pro Dark Ti kit...hmmmm...should I get one...
