There are twelve one piece wheels cast in light grey resin in the set which have virtually no cleanup required and are free of any blemishes such as air holes and the like for one of the easiest updates going.
The detail on the complicated wheel contours and hubs is very well done and includes the detail on the inside of the wheels as well. The only minor issue is the slight curve inward at the outer edges of the centre wheel disc is not there but this is really not all that noticeable from some angles.
The centre reinforcing rim is nicely rendered as are the hub bolts with the width of the rubber section is very good and the wheels are straight replacements for the kit wheels to give an nice added level of detail.
Overall this is a very nice set of replacement wheels for the ZSU-23 and the SA-6 which requires very little if any cleanup and provides a nice increase in detail over the relevant kit parts.
