Default Wheel adapters to fit TC wheels on a pan car?

Good afternoon, I need a little bit of help. Does anyone know if any companies produce (or have produced) wheel adapters to fit Touring Car wheels onto say a vintage Bolink pan car???


I picked up a REAL clean unused vintage Bolink pan car rolling chassis this past weekend for $5 (yep, $5!!! ) and originally I planned to sell it. Now, I'm thinking that I might just build it and keep it for a vintage body I've had for a few years. For this particular project I kinda want to use some touring car wheels to get the look that I want.


Someone please point me in the right direction

There used to be 2 options for this but I believe neither are in production. Pro-line used to make a dish wheel set that would bolt directly on a pan car but it was sized to fit rubber street tires. Also there was either an adapter or a specific wheel to use the old AE Dual Sport wheels on a pan car.

A little more recent the F103GT used TC wheels so with some work you may be able to fit the front steering knuckles/axles and the rear axle to the Bolink chassis...but F103GT parts are all metric so it is going to take some fabrication to get it to work...if you can find the parts.

Probably the least expensive way to do it would be to use the normal 1/10th pan car wheels and tires and get someone to print you up some wheel disk stickers that look like the rim pattern you want.

Default ......BRPracing.com.......

......they used to make "touring car wheel adapter hubs" [P/N 6746 or 6745-frt & rear kit] ......the rears dependent on pod(wide vs. narrow)widened to fit 235mm shells(ie. P30); the fronts are just tubes to fit the bearings to the 12mm hex of touring car wheels. Good luck & please keep posting on what your doing.-Greg

I would be quite interested by such adapters too. The guy "foampervert" on this forum had some machined adapters for his corally CCT but I think he doesn't sell anymore... too bad.

I like the idea of rubber pan cars so much that I even considered buying a Tamiya DDT, that tells you how interested I am...

THANKS for all of the help and advice guys......I'll check more into my options....and see how everything fits within my project. I might just have to stick with the current style of wheels to fit the width of my body that I want to use....

THANKS to all!!!
