Bearing style wheels have a small visible white or pink bearing on the backside of the wheel.
This listing is for a set of 4 Redline replacement wheels and the Famous Tune-Up Tool. The wheel set contains 2 Medium and 2 Large size wheels. These wheels fit the original Redlines from 1968 through 1970. They are typical wheels for the Hot Heap, The Indy Cars, The Spoilers Series as well as many other castings.
This indispensable tool actually works to help you straighten bent axles and removing wheels!
If you’re familiar with the Tune-up Wrench included in the Tune-Up Tower from back in 1969, you will recognize this tool. All the way down to the zinc plating, material and manufacturing method, this tool is spot on! Even the small eyelet is there! Someone back in the 1960s thought the kids would wear the tool around their neck so they could repair the cars frequently as they blew through the superchargers!!
Two important improvements were made to increase the functionality of the wrench; The thickness was increased slightly and the blade support was extended on the bottom of the tool. Both changes make the tool more rigid, so when you’re actually using it, the job gets done without any bending, unlike the originals which bent very easily.
Each tool is made of high-grade stamped steel with zinc plating. Both the front and back sides are blank. The finish looks a lot like the finish on the bases of the early cars from 68-72.
